We Finally Have a Female Predator: Thanks Feminism!

Wow, women really can have it all!


At the Predator panel at San Diego Comic Con, it was revealed that the latest film in the long-running franchise will finally feature female Predators. Congratulations ladies, we did it. Equality has come to Yautja Prime! While this will be the first onscreen appearance of a female Predator, the characters have appeared in comic books and novelizations.

According to the novel Alien vs. Predator: Prey, female Predators are considered just as fierce on their home planet as male ones are. The female Predator appeared in a clip played at the panel, where she is about to attack Olivia Munn’s character, Dr. Casey Bracket. Or, maybe she was just trying to network? It’s hard making female friends in the old boys club of hunting humans for sport. Maybe she’s leaning in, mandibles first.

Chelsea Steiner
Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
