Since most monster films nowadays are usually versus movies, a fifth Jaws movie would most likely follow that trend. (if they don't, we'll probably have yet another sequel that's just a rehash of the first film) the shark this time would not only be after the human protags, but also another super large animal who's stealing it's food. Said animal would be either..

1. A killer whale. It be a nice way to cash in on the classic rivalry between the two species, and also a nice way to reference to [[Film/OrcaTheKillerWhale one of the original films more famous knockoff's.]]

2. A saltwater crocodile. Another way to cash in on the classic rivalry between the two animals, not to mention reptiles are getting pretty popular now.

To be precise, it's the shark from Creator/LucioFulci's ''Zombi 2''. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfSqa1wmmxA This fight]] led to the infection.

Added DiffLines:

*This actually gets (vaguely) alluded to in the novel. Hooper actually refers to the shark in the novel as "Damn near Megaladon." Quints dismisses him as crazy, but Brody is aghast at the very idea that the shark could be "just a baby."


* The SoBadItsHorrible Horrible/{{Film}} page claims ''Jaws 5: Cruel Jaws'' has already been made and released. Exactly how, and when, that reached theaters is anyone's guess. But ''Jaws 4'' could be the sixth movie...

[[WMG: The Shark is part of a major Soviet psychological operations campaign.]]
They wanted to terrorize Amity into submission, so they could use the island as a beachead for an invasion of the Eastern Seaboard. Brody was a SpannerInTheWorks, however, forcing the Soviets to keep trying, until they gave up in 1987 with the onset of glasnost and the worsening economy forcing them to give up genetic experimentation.

In [[VideoGame/JawsUnleashed 2006]], however, documents relating to the experiments were found by the [[WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers the Planeteers]], who created a new shark and sent it to take out [=EnvironPlus=]. They also had it attack and eat civilians to instill fear in the populace so [=EnvironPlus=] employees would quit out of fear in droves. ''And it worked. It ALL worked.''

[[WMG: The white shark terrorizing Amity is the same one responsible for the Jersey Shore attacks of 1916]]

[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jersey_Shore_shark_attacks_of_1916 in 1916 a series of shark attacks occurred along the New Jersey shore that killed four people and seriously injured one more.]] They are widely crediting with igniting the American public's fear of sharks, and sometimes for having partly inspired Benchley to write Jaws. Brody and Hooper in fact mention it in the film ("Jersey Shore...1916...five people chewed up in the surf!")

The shark responsible was often pegged as a juvenile great white, about seven or eight feet in length. Recent research places the lifespan of the white shark at up to seventy years. If the shark was eight feet long in 1916, it would have been only a few years old, still a juvenile. By 1975, it would have been reaching the end of its lifespan and absolutely massive, perhaps approaching the 25 feet in the film.

In one of the drafts of the screenplay, Hooper reveals that the shark is a man-eater on a global scale, killing swimmers from South Africa to Australia. It's possible it left the eastern seaboard years ago in 1916, and has been cruising the world eating people ever since, only now returning to its old stomping grounds for the grand finale.
