Shane Black has opened up about creating the new Ultimate Predator for the fourth franchise installment in a fresh interview with Entertainment Weekly! This hulking, genetically enhanced Super Predator is supposedly the most dangerous and fearsome Predator yet and Black goes into detail about why he created such a beast for The Predator and what we can expect when its unleashed in theaters this Fall:

If the predator was to be an amalgam of, not just an ordinary predator, but also a collection of traits garnered from the various most powerful species that they’ve hunted, then you basically would have one that is stronger, faster, and smarter. We finally got an image that we liked, which captures this very canny, very cunning, and effortlessly powerful, savage predator. One of the only quibbles that I’ve had with some of the past predators is that, if you’re not careful, it can look like a guy in a football suit; big, bulky guy just stomping around. I wanted a certain more graceful, more light, more athletic quality, literally like a predator. If you watch a cheetah, it’s not clunky.

Black also addressed the possibility of there being more Predator sequels after The Predator. To this he explained:

I think it’s part of the task to always leave room, just like leaving room for dessert. But at the same time, unless you very firmly have in mind your pre-planned and pre-structured trilogy or sequel, it’s important to focus on the movie at hand and not get lost, like day one of a movie and you’re already planning the wrap party. It’s important that we get this one right. But of course we would leave room for continuing this, because as I mentioned, the Predator seems to have this uncanny longevity in the zeitgeist that people like new iterations of it, they like the hunting aspect of it, they break down every aspect of whatever costume he’s wearing this time and make toys of it. It’s strange, but it’s so longstanding and won’t go away.

You can read the full interview over on EW!

I think it is right to have the movie NOT lend to a sequel, because it does leave us on any Cliff Hanger if the movie does not do as well as FOX would hope..

Which also means IF the movie is a Hit then it certainly could be a option to go and allow Shane Black to come up with a Sequel or other Predator universe movie.

The AVP yautja clan and Berserker from Predators were all definitely on the clunky side, slow and heavy movements.

Will be interesting to see this new Super Predator.
