Whoever wins the upcoming copyright battle for the Predator franchise I wish they would take the franchise in the direction that Disney did with the Mandalorian.
The Mandalorian series proved that :
- A silent protagonist can be just as likeable if not even more likeable than a talking one.
- Current technology advancements allows filming of realistic alien worlds like never before.
Plus series have the advantage of developing lore and characters in a much more natural way than trying to jam everything into 90 mins.
It could be a different Predator in each episode going of to hunt on an alien planet or we follow the story of a specific one and invest in his story arc.
At some point a human could be involved, first as a captured game, but turned into an ally after something happens to the Predator’s craft that forces it to crash on an alien hostile world where both the predator and the human must collaborate to survive and get off the planet.
Feel free to add ideas! : )
