San Diego Comic Con is one of the centerpieces of nerd culture. It is a place to celebrate all of the things that you love about movies, comics, and video games. It’s also a place where massive corporations market their upcoming products to their supposedly core demographic.
Fox has a few surprises on their slat this year. They’re going to be announcing an X-Force movie and now we’re hearing rumblings that another one of Fox’s beloved franchises will be getting some help. In what form? No one is really sure. But the Predators facebook fan page just released this image.
If you’re unfamiliar with the topography showcased in the image above, it’s of downtown San Diego. Fox is prepping some sort of announcement having to do with the franchise. It has been posited that the nature of the announcement could pertain to any of the extended forms of media that the franchise has sprawled into. I’d say that the only two types of media that are heavy weight enough to merit a a secret announcement like this would either be a video game or a feature film.
Fingers crossed for a sequel to the criminally under appreciated Predators. I’d love to see Adrian Brody strap back on the flack vest. I thoroughly enjoyed the Rodriguez produced sequel.
There’s also the fact that Arnold has been attaching himself to every film franchise that he was once involved in. Would you be interested in seeing Schwarzenegger reprise his iconic role of Dutch? Or would you like Danny Glover to return?
We’ll see what happens over the course of this week.
