Adding a new type of predator was the most childish, and stupidest thing that they did in the Predators film. Along with reducing the noble hunter aspect to virtually nothing.
of course its possible, and to be expected that a sapient species would have multiple racial groups . . . but this isnt what they should be doing to keep the Predator franchise alive. (although I do hope that the super preds are retconned into being the hish, with the normal being Yautja)
I direct you to the two avp computer games what was fun about the predator portions? Not a lot, but the best parts were where you fought . . . something other than humans and aliens.
AVP extinction . . . best level in the whole game . . . fighting the Gro'tye.
Predator concrete Jungle, fighting the other predators, and fighting Hunter Borgia,
The most memorable predator comic? the one where a pred HUNTED A BEAR!
Best part of requiem, SEEING THE PREDATORS TROPHIES.
most memorable part of predator 2 . . . seeing the predators trophies.
are we starting to notice a pattern yet?
Lets even go back in time, what made AVP appealing in the first place . . . seeing the predator hunt aliens.
THE ALIENS WERENT EVEN REALLY THAT IMPORTANT TO THE STORY.
Predator has consistently succeeds when . . . the space hunter, actually does some hunting. To go across the universe to hunt new, and different creatures.
To boldy go where no man has gone . . . to find strange new life
AND RIP OUR ITS SPINE, MAKE A BELT OF ITS SKIN, AND MOUNT ITS SKULL ON YOUR FAVORITE WALL.
The Predator is a SPACE HUNTER . . . . IT NEEDS TO HUNT, IN SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE.
Here is how to save predator, make an predator movie based on Prey, or the original AVP comic . . . and cut out the xenomorphs . . . cut them out, and replace them with a new alien creature completely unrelated.
then the Machiko Naguchi joins the preds, and the movie series is essentially about her life with them (and dont make her depressed and yearn for humanity like in the books, make her embrace this lifestyle and love every aspect of it)
and every movie to take us to a new and interesting world, with new and interesting creatures for the preds to fight . . . with Naguchi being our eyes and ears.
