Well, the studios have done it again, presumably. Ive just read that the casting call for the lead of the new Predator film is to be a TEENAGED GIRL. Let me say that again. A TEENAGED GIRL. Is gonna go up against a 9 ft tall killing machine and win. What the literal fuck?!?
If true, that’s it for the franchise, I think. It was bad enough that a group of brain-injured misfits and a zero-combat experience/magically good with a machine gun scientist can take out a giant Predator who kills regular predators in 2 seconds, but a TEENAGED GIRL WITH A KNIFE, A CLUB AND A BOW IS GONNA TAKE DOWN AN INTERGALACTIC HUNTER WITH CLOAKING TECHNOLOGY AND A PLASMA GUN. SCIENCE H. LOGIC, WHAT IS GOING ON?!?!?!?!?
The description even said that the point of it was to break gender norms 🤦♂️. My sweet Lord in Heaven, this movie is screwed if this is the jumping off point. It wasn’t enough that the last one shoehorned in autism and global warming but this is unreal.
Maybe the writers/director played too much FT here and thinks a kid should 1v1 a Predator with a knife 🤣🤣🤣🤔😟😔😢🤮.
I reiterate, IF this turns out to be true, they can kiss my $ goodbye. I pray that it is false.
