The directions in the video also suggest a continuation.
After the great success of “Prey”, speculation about a sequel emerged. The next part of the film would be a development of the plot about the brave warrior Naru. Dan Trachtenberg, the director, would certainly like a sequel.
Although the theories about a possible continuation of the series are not officially confirmed by 20th Century studio, the traces left in the film itself suggest that such a development can be expected . Attentive viewers have noticed two pictures of the future appearing in the end credits. We see three Predator ships heading towards the village.
The film also featured a gun with the inscription Raphael Adolini 1715, which Naru used in combat. It is the same gun that Mike Harrigan received from the alien in the movie “Predator 2”. According to fans, this reference to the production from 1990 may suggest a potential continuation.
In an interview with SFFgazette, Dan Trachtenberg referred to the scene in the end credits and suggested that the story in Predator: Prey is not complete and may be developed further.
I think there’s definitely something…because so many movies are seen as franchise starters, there’s something inherently refreshing about a movie that feels complete. I hope this movie does feel complete. That said, we do something very unique in that, whereas other movies may have a post-credits scene, we have some storytelling inside our end credits themselves.
The director also stated that he had consciously left the plot open, but did not know if he would be able to make a sequel.
It leaves room for lots of different kinds of sequels to be made. I don’t know if we’re ready yet to say exactly what we want to do next, but I think there are lots of cool opportunities.
