2010’s Predators was a fun little B-movie, and although it was a modest hit, it didn’t provide the blockbuster returns that would prompt 20th Century Fox to seriously revive the franchise. However, it looks like Fox hasn’t given up the cloaked and dreadlocked alien hunter just yet. For people who still followed Predators on Facebook, they were given a new message this weekend—a line from 1987’s Predator: “There’s something out there waiting for us, and it ain’t no man…We’re all gonna die.” The image is a top-down, thermal view of San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter. Unlike everyone else with a Hall H panel, Fox stayed quiet on the information they provided to Comic-Con organizers, but THR is reporting that the studio will be bringing The Wolverine, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and a “surprise”. I don’t know if X-Men: Days of Future Past could be considered the surprise since even director Bryan Singer has mentioned a Comic-Con appearance for his movie. The surprise could be the recently announced X-Force, or it could be the return of Predator. Personally, I think either film would go over huge with the crowd.
Hit the jump to check out the image. Fox’s Comic-Con panel is from 4:15pm to 5:45pm on Saturday, July 20th. [Update: Hero Complex reports that Fox will actually be announcing a 3D Blu-ray release for Predator, not a new film.]
