I am not sure everyone would want to see Xeno vs Xeno Warfare, but i guess a number of people would... i do think its unlikely FOX will take this route though.
But who knows.... i dont even know if FOX know what to do at the moment.
I hope that the only AWAKENING we are in for is FOX/RS wake up and learn from their mistakes.

Agree with Ati some of the Dark Horse comics/novelisations could be a good source of inspiration for future films. I think in another thread some time ago we discussed the idea of FOX doing the Earth Wars trilogy + Genocide (the picture above) as a TV series.
To expand the universe they really need to cover the infestation and decline of Earth to the really punch home how dangerous this species is.
They even have some excellent lead characters in Wilkes and Billie (who are basically re-badged Hicks & Newt) but are different and deep enough to be their own characters
My problem with the Dark Horse comics is the introduction of Royal Jelly and resulting Xeno-zip drug which attempts to commoditise the Xenomorph and diminish its worth and mystery. Again it just leads to them space insects with their "honey".
Genocide and the war between the two xenomorph strains could be a very interesting movie if done well!!

I believe a spinoff is a better idea than a prequel or sequel for things like that. I don't think a spinoff can hurt canon as bad as a prequel can. To give an example: the Ewoks movie, admittedly a bad movie, did not change the perception of the Star Wars saga nor infuriated the fans as much as the prequels did. Same with AVP.
