The Predator character details revealed?

Back in May, some photographs were taken on location in Vancouver, Canada from the upcoming movie The Predator which depicted some of the cast such as Keegan-Michael Key and Trevante Rhodes driving an armored military transport. What made these photographs stand out was that joining Key and Rhodes were two other cast members wearing Predator suits. Of even more interest was that these Predators seemed to be wearing human military attire, such as combat pants, and combat vests. For those already concerned about the direction this movie seems to be taking, these confusing images did little to quieten the ever-growing doubt surrounding Shane Black's movie.

Courtesy of YouTuber Hybrid Network, it appears the mystery of the combat fatigue wearing Predators may have been solved. In a new video in which HN postulates the possibility of The Predator movie introducing audiences to a female member of the alien hunter race, he makes reference to the Predators depicted in the earlier mentioned photographs (one included above), stating that in a leaked script the Predators in question are disavowed from their tribe, and having sought asylum here on Earth are now working for the government, or most likely the OWLF (Other World Life Forms) task force first introduced in 1990's Predator 2. HN goes on to infer that as a result of this transgression Predators come to Earth to hunt these wayward Predators.

So, much like with 2004's Alien vs. Predator, it looks as though we are again going see humans fighting alongside Predators, set among the backdrop of suburbia, a la 2007's AvP:R, with Predator on Predator conflict, much like as in 2010's Predator. It's nice to see that Shane Black looks set to inject some much-needed originality into the franchise (obvious sarcasm).

My hype for this movie keeps going down.


The only pro is they have a great director maybe just maybe he can pull something out of this.

I just keep going back to Shane Black's original statement that he wants to expand and shake-up the Predator universe.

He was in the original film, knows how much of a classic it is.  Need to trust he can pull this off!!

The last 3 cast added Busey, Olmos, Strahovski were good picks

I guess we need to keep a open mind and give the movie a chance, i think FOX have to hope this is a success because right now the Alien Franchise has been effected by disappointments.

If this movie follows suit then it may not be good new for FOX and its TWO Blockbuster Sci-Fi Franchises.

Mind you i feel the Predator Franchise can have some leeway, because Predator 2 was not exactly a great movie, and Predators likewise was not very good but far from Poor though.

I hope The Predator does well, and i hope people dont try and compare it to the First Movie because they may be disappointed as Predator was a Classic Blockbuster and really raised the Bar Very High

I think someone needs to something new and bold with this franchise, and hopefully Black and Dekker are the men to do it. The Yautja are an interesting race but the previous films (including the AVPs) just re-hash the same old premise, time and again.

Perhaps Blacks gritty, black humour lends itself well to the franchise.

@ BD & IR,

I agree, I wholeheartedly do, and that nagging little voice that keeps saying this movie will fail; I do hope this movie proves it wrong.

But (time to go a bit BigDave here),

Virtually every bit of news just adds to the worry. Yeah, Black is responsible for one of my most favorite series; Lethal Weapon, but beyond that, his filmography isn't exactly amazing. Iron Man 3 made a ton at the box office and Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley turned in good performances but the whole movie felt underwhelmingly flat.

Busey, Olmos, Strahovski were good picks, Munn and Key weren't, whereas Holdbrook shouldn't be lead over Jane. But, one question - why did no-one cast Michael Biehn.

Worst of all is the premise. We could have gone to desert, Vietnam War, Bosnian War, the Dark Ages (a la the Fan Film), in the 17th-18th century to explain the 1715 Flintlock pistol, or as I saw on YouTube; have Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson be a stowaway on a Predator ship and have him sneaking around their homeworld. Instead, Black and Dekker (Monster Squad and Robocop 3; shudder) offer us suburbia, with a string of recycled ideas.

In all honesty, Covenant sounds better on paper than this does, hence the difficulty in trying to remain optimistic.

Gavin I agree the premise seems a little flat and I would love if Black would come out and give us something, anything to ease the doubt. There is nothing but silence and that stupid image of the predators riding in a tank giving peace signs.

Is their silence over-confidence and smug arrogance, or do they have a massive ace up their sleeve that we don't know know about?

This is an already disillusioned fanbase forced to endure 2 popcorn AVP films and a re-booted carbon copy of the first film. I enjoyed Predators but it offered the same old Predator premise with a few new toys and gadgets. If Black/Dekker say they have something expansive and mind-blowing, give us something to get excited about lol

ps. I forgot Thomas Jane! Great actor, i hope they use him well
