The San Diego Comic-Con hosted a wild Hall H panel for 20th Century Fox’s The Predator yesterday, which opened with a lengthy debate that imagined scenarios where the Predator does battle with other iconic pop culture characters.
“Ripley would find a way,” said director Shane Black, while Keegan-Michael Key added, “Ripley would definitely win.” The conversation digressed even further when Wolverine and Deadpool came into the fold: “He loses to Deadpool for the same reason he loses to Wolverine,” said an energized Key, “he can strike and strike and strike and strike and they’re just gonna keep coming back. It just takes Deadpool a little longer to recover depending on the injury.”
The host took it one step further, inquiring as to how Evil Dead’s Ash would handle the alien warriors. Key quickly chimed in:
“If Ash is crafty – he’s slower than he used to be – if crafty Ash can dismember just one (Predator) arm, he’s good to go. I think Ash can win that.” He adds: “If the whole fight takes place in a creepy rundown cabin, Ash wins.”
