Updated: First Possible Predator 5/Skulls Character Details Emerge

Update 10/02/2021 – We were actually able to find a casting call for Skulls that included these character details. Originally posted as an open casting call on the 8th of January 2020 on the Tribal Film Festival Facebook page, the character details are a little different though. In this casting call Kee is actually the older of the pair.

KEE Female; 19 years old; Comanche. Her name, “Kee”, means “no” in Comanche. A name she has earned by perpetually refusing to do as she is told her entire life. Kee is very close to her younger brother, Taabe, who is being groomed as a leader. As capable as any young man in the tribe, Kee has always been a teacher and source of inspiration for Taabe. In the Comanche way – she is “Patsi” – the elder sister that has helped to shape him. Kee is a truth teller and has insight that others do not. A tomboy, she wants to prove herself in the masculine world of the Comanche. When danger threatens them all – Kee sets out to prove that she is as capable as any young warrior.

TAABE Male; 17 years old (seeking 18 to play younger); Comanche. Taabe’s name means “Sun”, like the star in the sky – which lets you know the tribe’s expectations for him – he is being groomed to be a Chief one day. Having relied on the council of his older sister, Kee, his “Patsi” for his entire life. Taabe has just had a taste of success in one of his first big hunts. As he is coming of age and fresh off of his first triumph, he feels that he’s now a leader/in charge and no longer needs Kee – which causes the first rift in their very close relationship.

Given the age of the casting call on Tribal Film Festival, it’s possible these details may have changed and the information Murphys Multiverse has shared is from an updated call. Thanks to AvP Galaxy staffer VoodooMagic for finding this!


It’s been a little while since we heard anything regarding Dan Trachtenberg’s upcoming Predator 5 aka Skulls. There’s been no official plot announcement, but based on what AvP Galaxy exclusively learned and what we’ve put together regarding the project, we know the film is a period piece focusing around Native Americans. Now, according to Murphys Multiverse, they have some exclusive details on some of the film’s main characters.

Let’s start with our rebellious girl, whose name Kee means “no”. They are looking for a 15-year-old to take on the role of a rebellious Comanche teen. She has a close relationship with her brother. He is our second lead, the 18-year old Taabe, whose name means “sun”. Kee is a truth-teller who sees what others don’t, as she guides her brother, who is expected to become Chief one day. After a successful hunt, he believes he has come of age and no longer requires his sister’s help, which creates a rift between them. She decides to set out and prove that she is just as capable as the others. She aims to defy the rules set by the masculine world of the Comanche.

 First Possible Predator 5/Skulls Character Details Emerge

While I’m not too familiar with Murphys Multiverse as an outlet, Alien vs. Predator Galaxy can corroborate that we’ve heard that Skulls will feature a younger cast and that they were specifically casting roles aged 15 to 25. When we first heard about the project, it was also revealed to us to be in the casting stage, so I believe it’s likely this information may have come straight from casting calls and be reliable.

Also, Murphys Multiverse states that Trachtenberg’s Predator film is still being produced under the working title Skulls. Thanks to botmetro and Whos Nick for the heads up.

    I agree. Plenty of badass believable women in movies we love, we all know them, no need to mention. I actually agree with your demonstration with Cus D'Amato and the rest of your post above. I was just responding to an earlier post that was rather definitive about a comanche teen kicking EVERYONE'S ass on this forum.
  2. Mr.Turok
    People arguing over what's believable and what isn't in the movie about giant, man-hunting, crab faced space gators.
    Honestly pretty much, I mean its also the draw of the story that somehow people perceive as a negative. If 1980s US Special Forces had trouble handling a extraterrestrial hunter, how can pre 18th century Native American warriors handle one? I wanna see that movie. It draws my attention to see this go down.

    Ironically, people clamor for a fight in the past like a samurai vs Predator fight in Feudal Japan and somehow ignore the power gap between both beings. Make the samurai a women and suddenly talks of believability is all over the place, huh?

    One punch from a 200 Ibs couch potato and it's lights out, no matter how many wars you've been in. No brainer indeed, money's still on the normie.

    Smaller and skinnier men still stronger than most girls because biology. And a mean right hook from a trained 19yo girl is less powerful than a mean right hook from a 200 Ibs regular guy.

    Simple, if the man never trained or has any experience in his day of his life, his hits will never make contact unless he has fortunate luck. If you can't catch your opponent, you will not do nothing to your opponent. The reflexes of a warrior, be it a male or female 19 year old will be far faster and hits much harder than the normie.

    Look at the example of an aged Cus d'Amato


    The man is old, but he know when and how to hit Muhammed Ali and you even see Ali being surprised by the man's quick reaction. Thats just decades of training in his mind which we all know eventually he trains Mike Tyson that became a legend himself. Age barely slowed him down, and thats an elderly man. I can imagine the youth of a young woman with a warrior heritage doing worse to a 200lb normie.

    Just curious, how this 19yo warrior chick's gonna wreck a way stronger regular man with her bare hands ?

    If the young woman who has been trained and lived under a warrior tribe for all her life, its not strange that she would know some form of hand to hand combat as various native american tribes had their own art of combat. With the Comanche famously/infamously being known to focus on war than any other native american tribe out there, its not hard to imagine their own system of hand to hand combat, kind of like any warrior culture like Vikings or Spartans.
    So just like the many forms of war out there with hand to hand combat training, but they have similar ways to finish the job; Go for the throat, crush the layrx, bend the arm in a way that should not ever bend, wear down your opponent to create an opening for her to target, use the weight of your opponent against them by hooking the incoming fist and using momentum to throw him over the shoulder lay the man on his back and in turn finish him off with a neck stop, kick, knee, punch, ect.

    I'm not entirely familiar with any existing native american art of war due to lost history but I know there are some systems that are still alive today. If you want historical reference of capable female warriors, one can look at the Dahomey Amazons, an all woman warrior regiment for the Kingdom of Dahomey or even Running Eagle a native american woman of the Blackfoot tribe that lead many war parties for her tribe.

    There was one famous account in the Dahomey Amazons, when assaulted the French city of Kotonou on March 4, 1890, that at one point during this battle, one French soldier wrote about seeing his best friend decapitated with one swing of a machete from a pissed-off Amazon. When a second soldier knocked the weapon out of the woman's hand with his rifle butt, she threw him on the ground and tore out his larynx with her teeth.

    Her teeth

    The nasty hand to hand combat that allowed her to disarm, pin down a taller and heavier male that is trained by one of the most powerful nations of the time, and tear out his juggler with her teeth, is something to be feared. And seeing how the Comanche are also known to fight this messy, there is no doubt that 19 year old warrior can do something just as nasty to some normie. Plus, history has many people taking hits that have been known to either kill or severly injure a human but still get up and keep fighting, no stranger for this to be just as applicable to someone who lives in a warrior culture.

    I agree. All I'm saying is that one punch from a regular 200 Ibs guy and it's goodbye guaranteed.
    One punch from a well trained 19yo girl and it's not necessarily goodbye guaranteed. Trust me, I took many.
  5. [cancerblack]
    Weight and reach are generally the deciding factors in any fight.

    But we're talking about Predator where smaller combatants using cunning or tenacity to take out larger foes is like, the main theme.

    Ahem... With no weapons ? I'm not so sure about that. Probably some people here who would beat her to a pulp. And I don't mean two or three people.
    sure thing fam I'd blow anyone into chunks given proper prep -- it all depends on context


    which we don't have

    Not anyone, a 19 yo comanche girl with no weapons. And a 19 yo comanche girl with no weapons... Still is a 19 yo girl. Not dangerous or capable of doing something ? Sure she can. But sure also many people in here would kick her ass just based on pure strength, weight advantages etc.

    Not much context needed either IMO. A way heavier guy against an unarmed badass girl, still I'll bet my money on the guy, even with no martial arts background for him.

    A young woman trained from a warrior tribe that is famously known to successfully resist many armies and tribes for a very long time that basically lives and breaths war daily vs...... some couch potato or normie. The same tribe that is famously known to fight to the death as captured alive is meant torture from their enemies which is something they want to avoid at all costs? Not to mention smaller and skinner men knocked out bigger and more muscular ones based on simply having the right fist at the right place. A mean right hook is a mean right hook, no matter what.

    Sure dude yeah this fight is a no brainer....

    At face value, I can see how a teenage male or female lead versus a Predator can cause a stir among fandom. Since Disney has acquired it, there has been a concern over the "Disneyfication" of Predator where they might take the franchise and soften it, perhaps even to the degree the Twighlight or Hunger Games fare.

    But in context, knowing that 19 years old is considered an adult today, that Comanche natives had a much shorter lifespan and would marry around the age of 12, it seems very historically appropriate, and hopefully will be treated as such.  :)
  10. Naginata
    I'm seeing an awful lot of moaning about the lead being a teenage girl in this thread, and like... FOLKS.

    A 19 year-old Comanche warrior, boy or girl, would beat the shit out of anyone in this thread. Those folks WERE NOT f**king around.
  11. Mr.Turok
    Nah, not to me!  I'm very much a fan of that type of design for the female.

    https://pbs.twimg.com/ext_tw_video_thumb/1080573942451056652/pu/img/mYwagJxivIsj4Rjv.jpg

    Don't get me wrong, I want the female counterparts to look a bit more unique from their male counterparts, but I just don't want Alien and Predator being too married to each other in terms of property, design, and lore. It falls into the backyard syndrome where the universe is smaller than it was supposed to be and everything is closer to home than you think it is. The Predator is no longer a Predator anymore, it has too look like their enemy now, cuz they fight each other all the time right? That's how it works?  Its like how the Space Jockey is no longer an alien no more, just a tall pale man with black eyes. The Space Jockey in the first film is no longer truly alien anymore, the sense of awe and wonder is gone as its closer to us due to being our creators and with David being our creation, he created the xenomorphs and now everything must be connected. Space is no longer vast and terrifying than we originally thought it was. We can't have uniqueness, fear, or mystery of the unknown no more.

    I also know someone will say that "why not", as its a fictional race, but fail to understand that its too close to the Alien franchise and not something that stands on its own as a Predator trait. The alien is supposed to steal traits from its host, not the other way around.

    Plus it just looks uncreative, just slap the crest from the Queen alien with a glue gun and there, "good" creature design. No more thought process needed. Its just the same as not putting actual proper mandibles on a Predator. Why bother? Its mandibles! You know Preds have mandibles so why should it even be properly constructed like the first two movies if you know they are mandibles? If you get the idea, than everything should be fine and dandy! In the end, its not even canon anyway so at least there is that.

    I will say, as a final word, the one time I can see the design work is with Sister Midnight from the Witchblade/Darkness crossover can make it work. She makes it regal and shadowy looking.

    I see someone is a fan of Plague of Gripes. I loved the Super Best Friends playthrough on Predator Concrete Jungle.

    For the reasons I seen though, I understand why boobs on a female pred is dumb but also the internet will always find a way so as long as the initial design isn't insane than its fine. Its why HG has a very tame and even acceptable take which is all I need. The head crest design that Voodoo posted has to go though and stay far away from any female Predator designs, it looks like a Queen's crown and I don't want the alien designs to be that intertwined with each other.

    IMO the worst thing about the Predboobs is that such a beatiful thing as female tities are combined with a head of a ugly f**king Predator. It's like mixing wine with motor oil

    Well fan art etc. is a little easier to avoid I think.  ;)

    Mostly unrelated though, I like what's going on with this female Predator's head. It reminds me of that wild unproduced Cool Props bust.

    Not feeling the dual Predators. Back to basics please! But I'd love to see the female Predator as the central antagonist, especially if it mirrors what we've been dealt in Hunting Grounds!

    I still feel the same way about Predatits as you do about Crabators.  :P

    Now all you need is three films to feature it and 17 years to stew within. :)

    Dunno about films but it's been making me cringe for 20+ years.
