If you count none of the Predator movies featured the same characters, it doesn't really matter that they say it's a sequel or a reboot  ::)

Exactly, but people were going apeshit so it's nice to hear the actual word "sequel".

As I've said before, this news is to the Predator franchise as to Ridley Scott coming back was to the Alien franchise.

In terms of prestige.

He's not the Freddy Krueger 5 guy. Nor the Vacancy guy. Nor the Resident Evil guy. Nor special effects guys. He's the Lethal Weapon/Kiss Kiss Bang Bang/Iron Man 3 guy.

In comparison, the Alien franchise it's a real mythology. The Predator franchise (not counting comics) is just a compilation of random stories IMHO, so I agree; it doesn't really matter if this film will be a reboot or a sequel.

But hey, maybe it can be the start of an arc, instead of these episodic ventures.

A reboot doesn't preclude being a sequel.  Reboot is just an idiotic buzzword.   In terms of being a sequel or a remake though, that matters.  A sequel can be taken on its own merit, a remake would be competing directly with "the one everyone likes".  This way, he won't have to recast Dutch and Dillon and Blaine, etc
