Filming starts in just over three weeks.

Keep thinking that Deckard and Racheal had a child and she died during childbirth, Gosling is that child and the main drive of the replicants in the film is to either kill or protect him.
Cant see them leaving out Edward James Olmos either.

Hmmmm,

How could Deckard and Rachael have a child, if one or both are replicants?

Highly unlikely that the Tyrell Corporation would design replicants to be able to breed, which would impact their monopoly on manufacturing replicants.

Are you then postulating that both Deckard and Rachael are human?

Interesting possibilities!

Rachael was "special" and that may not have been confined to just an extended life span, they left that open. I don't think there`s anything
Dr Tyrell wouldn't do to improve his products or at least to see how far he could take things and there was no reason to tell Deckard and especially Roy
that she could do so.

Works well with Tyrell`s ego as well as what better to serve a God complex than to artificially create life and then have that life reproduce.

When you boil it down, replicants are human just manufactured not created.

Interesting idea (the child)...but very unlikely. I think the Gosling angle is just to make the next generation of movie-goers interested in the BR movies.
I'll say that Gosling is a Blade Runner in search of Deckard and Rachael Wink

Yeah the more I think about the child angle, it keeps heading down the I Robot track. Its a good hook but unlikely as you say.

It would be an interesting twist if Rachael in fact was not a replicant, but just a pawn of Tyrell's in some sort of a bigger scheme.

Nope, Rachael not being a Rep is nonsense. Shocked She's one albeit a newer improved model...but a Rep nonetheless. Wink

If Gosling is playing a young Deckard, they wouldn't have to re invent the art direction to much.

I have a feeling that they'll use that story-board that wasn't filmed by SRS in the first BR because of H.Ford wearing that Indy hat
You know the scene I'm talking about...right?
Landing the Spinner in a field and approaching a farm. Soup simmering on the stove and the RepDetect waiting for the owner to arrive.

What if Gosling is waiting for Ford?

Scott even raised that scene recently in an interview. The young gun hunting the old bull eh? Wonder if Deck`s still packin his trusty blaster old school style.

Yep, and he and Rachael have changed locations along the years to evade being tracked by the Police...until that day. Wink I believe Rachael "passed away" several years ago, leaving Deck alone and running from the law.

I don't think Gosling's character is there to hurt Deckard; maybe to ask for help into solving/finding Reps in L.A. and then kill him.
Who knows?

Yeah, I haven't heard any word that the character of Rachel is even in this film.

I don't think you would even if she is, same with Gaff or anyone else who is brought across from BR, would give up too much to early.

Lots of cool stuff to mull over like what the wash up from the 2019 incident was, are replicants legal on or offworld and does Tyrell Corp even make them anymore.

Looks like they released a couple pieces of concept art for the sequel
