Newt’s Further Spiral Into Madness
Throughout second and third act, we see Charlie Day’s Dr. Newt Geiszler become more and more compromised by a Precursor presence in his head. This leads him to do a whole bunch of stuff he wouldn’t normally do, like compromise the defenses of humanity, almost choke out his best friend / foil Dr. Gottlieb, and wear crisp, flashy suits. By the end of the film, the Precursors seem to have a greater hold on his psyche, and in the next film, the stage seems set to see good Newt and bad Newt square off to see who gets control for good. Considering Charlie Day did a pretty good job laying the foundation for this battle throughout , seeing him go full throttle for one final charge is too good of an opportunity to pass up.
An All Out War With The Precursors
Much like Charlie Day and the fall of Newt, the conflict between humanity and the Precursors seems to be leading to a gigantic showdown, with John Boyega’s Jake Pentacost promising a full-fledged invasion through The Breach. With the PPDC set to take the fight to the alien race that’s been trying to seize control of the Earth, we might finally get to see more of the other side of the rift, as Jake and company bring the fight to the enemy. And just as we’ll be entering the domain of the Precursor menace, they just might cross over into our world yet again, with everything they’ve got — possibly leading to one epic two-front fight sequence.
