I noticed this when I first watched it. I feel like the Predator movies are in need of a batshit insane Predator, one of the likes of Bad Blood or Big Game.

I think we've failed to do Bad Bloods twice in a row now (he says as a big Predators fan), let that concept lie for a bit theatrically before attempting it again.

I'd spin it as a slightly deranged cannibal Pred but skip the "being hunted" or "hunts others" plot point and just have him be really f**kin' mean to the humans, convey the BaDbLoOd part via trophies on his wargear and extra nasty attitude. 

Devil's advocate ofc, I'd like a few straight up Pred On A Hunt flicks for now, too.

When the time is right, I'd be all for this.  A Predator that goes beyond mere hunting, one that's both monstrous and terrorizing.  It seems (to me anyway) that with the movies we've lost the sense of terror/horror that the humans feel - they learn so quickly how to confront it/take it on.  I don't know if this coming movie will be different, but I'd like to see that sense of fear and overcoming of fear again.

Oh I definitely agree with you there, the horror, terror element is all but gone in the films after Predator 1987. I would like to see such a return.

I think with the right team behind the film, you wouldn't even need a gimmick to convey that idea of something cruel and immensely powerful picking off the protagonists one by one. And that feeling of our heroes being up against something that just straight up outclasses them is at the core of the best entries.

But if there has to be a gimmick for promotional headlines I deffo vote for Hannipred Lectitor.

One of my favorite scenes from Predator comics:

The fact that he's sitting by a fire and decorated one of the skulls is ridiculous but amazing at the same time.
Also, I love the crazed look in his eyes and that Enoch is scared shitless.
