Shane Black'S The predator, now on Blu-ray, was a bit of a mishmash of mythology and film trends, so it was really interesting to find out what exactly happened during the 20th Century Fox production process. One of those concerns is the fact that the Fox film has been re-recorded to change the third and final step. Although we still need to get a good explanation of why the chosen end is ultimately useful, we are now looking at some recordings of the alternative endings, specifically referring to the Predator Killer masks.
Originally, the film did not have this Predator Killer aspect at all, although they may have saved the idea for a future film. Black and Fred Dekker& # 39; S original script for The predator characterized a very different end. Birth.Movies.Death has received a copy, described as follows:
Instead [of the Predator Killer scene], McKenna, his son, Rory (played by Jacob Tremblay) and Casey Bracket (Olivia Munn) have all just survived the last attack of the Super Predator (in the script & # 39; The Upgrade & # 39;) when a helicopter lands . From Climbs … Dutch Schaeffer (Arnold Schwarzenegger), his "face haunted, etched by pain." The Dutch tell the trio to come with him, and when Rory asks: "Er … me too?", The smiles smile second most iconic badass of the franchise and says: "Especially you."
So the final version swapped Schwarzenegger with the Predator Killer, or at least eliminated Dutch as the intermediary between Quinn, Rory and Casey, and the extraterrestrial tech. And to make you all catch up on what this means, a civil war has actually arisen between factions of the Predators; those who want to help people (or at least keep us a little longer in the hope that we will help them fight the bigger, stronger, faster, ultimate predators) have given mankind an impressive outfit to bridge the gap between our civilizations to reduce technologies. Enter: Predator Killer, a sort of armed exopak in which characters are displayed The predator franchise Iron Man-like skills and let them go self-on-toe with the Predators themselves.
In the theatrical end, Quinn got the opportunity to wear the suit, while his son Rory led the show on the research side. But in alternating endings, two famous names would have their own Predator Killer masks: Ripley and Newt.

For my money, these alternative ideas are more interesting than the ones they went with, but there is no reason why the franchise would not be able to use them if there would be more follow-up in the future. Let us know your opinion in the comments!
