out why there is no conflict between special relativity and quantum mechanics. There is no problem with treating special relativity, general relativity, or relativistic quantum mechanics as good predictive models because they are good predictive models. Models that have eventually been falsified, such as Newton's gravity, can still be good approximations in a domain of applicability (For Newton its the weak gravitational field [our solar system]). Most assuredly there will be new physics which will be interesting. Existing physics is interesting. Right now we don't really need to treat SR as an approximation. Lots of people think they have found a way to falsify special relativity. Nobody has and I havn't heard of anybody whose 'way' is being discussed prominently.
