Olivia Munn made it quite clear her character, Casey, will not stand idley by while the men in The Predator battle with the intergalactic Yautja. Speaking to Men's Health recently, Munn explained her and director Shane Black agreed early on that her character needed to have combat knowledge and possess the ability to throw down with an Alien hunter if need be - and apparently she will!
Between us—wink-wink—it was awesome. I’ll say this, my character knows how to use a weapon. You always see in movies that the guys just automatically know how to use it and the girls, they have to kind of fumble through it. I didn’t want her to be a soldier, but there’s no reason why she wouldn’t know how. Shane and I were on the same page about that immediately.
Olivia couldn't spill anymore beans regarding the film's plot, but through sources and leaked photos we can confirm the film will involve more than one Predator. We can also confirm the film will involve somewhat of a hunt between two alternative factions of Predator - one of which not being of "pure" lineage. We don't wish to spoil anything further so we'll leave it at that for now.
