Director Shane Black has confirmed that the costume for the new Predator in his Predator 4 / The Predator will be organically different. He adds that their goal with the design of the new Predator is not to necessarily improve it, but to make it fun. He also adds that the Predator technology will be getting an upgrade and that we will see a multitude of new weapons and tools at the Predator's disposal!
Ultimately though, Shane does add that the design of the Predator is inferior to the quality of the film's story. Focusing primarily on delivering a compelling and quality story will be what makes The Predator the success he and 20th Century Fox are hoping for.
“It’s not to ‘improve,’ it’s make it fun, make it different, make it organically different. So what’s the extension of it that makes sense, that’s exciting? There have been a lot of changes to Stan’s design over the years. These different Predator movies have done different things. Ultimately it’s not about design to me, it’s about the story you want to tell. There are people who are always going to agonize over Iron Man, what color his suit is. Maybe this weapon does a new thing, but if the story is not good I don’t give a sh*t what color the suit is. In ‘The Predator’ we’re doing a lot of upgrades to what you would consider to be the traditional Predator technology and look, but hopefully the story is what’s going to drag people in, not just the attention to the minutiae.”
