Well, considering the total failure of THE PREDATOR, I think this leaves the franchise at a definite crossroads. Where does this leave the Expanded Universe, in which I have always had the utmost faith??

I’d say exactly the same place that it is now.

I don’t think they should. Just stick to the plans they already have.

There's upcoming material, just nothing beyond comics for Predator.

I’m pretty sure there are more Predator novels coming down the pipe, too.

There is another 3 issues of Hunters II

Plus, as Ultramorph has pointed out, talk of moe Predator literature.

And when I said plans I meant any that they may have. Why does this movie mean the landscape has to change?

The movie has tanked. There will be no demand for Predator material anymore. That is why.

We survived AVPR, no need to ring the death bells for the franchise just yet.

Death bells for Predator, sure. For Alien? Or, rather, as Ridley has reinvented it, David? No.

It didn't tank; that's just inaccurate. It's too early to tell whether it's gonna make its money back, but it's looking like it is. Maybe it's not the hit they wanted, but a complete commercial failure it is not. Now, creatively...  :-X
