Shane Black has confirmed where The Predator will fall into the Predator cinematic timeline. Speaking to the folks over at HeyUGuys, Shane Black explained that his Predator 4 will actually act more like a Predator 3, fitting in the timeline after the events of Predator and Predator 2 and well before the events of Robert Rodriguez's Predators from 2010.
However, despite taking place well before Predators, Shane somewhat hints to the fact that Predators won't be neglected from The Predator's plot. Could this mean we learn more about the Predator culture and the existence of the Super Predator race which Rodriguez introduced us to? Or will there be other subtle nods? Whatever the case may be, it's exciting to know that Predator 2 won't be neglected either and that events from that film may very well play a role in The Predator's plot!

About The Predator
Shane Black returns to the Predator franchise to direct a new sequel to 1987's Predator! Officially titled The Predator! From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black's explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe's most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
