who do you think the main character in alien awakening is going to be?0 Upvotes16 RepliesUpvoteAdd A Reply
I personally think that it is going to be tennasee.
alot of people didn't like daniels very much( I thought she was fine) and they are going to turn her into the queen neer the begining while she is still in cryo. if david is going to do something to here he may as well do it while she is asleep. Mabye we will have an alien 3 style opening were tennasee and daniells dire and the main character is one of the random colonists. I thhink that tennasee will live though.
instead of daniels turning into the queen, I think it would be much more interesting if eggmorphing was reintroduced ( not wiping out the queen but serving in addition) and the eggs on lv 426 are each one of the colonists.
what are your thought and hopes for awakening?

ALIEN: Awakening - not confirmed and probably not going to happen for a while, if it even does.
However, for the sake of fantasy, the lead character role should be a non-white female robot.
20th FOX and the next director need to cast Asian actors, Latino, Native American, Black, Isreali, Iranian, Transgender, everyone really.
How did Alien 3 get away with one African American actor and one Asian (toward the end)?
Aliens seemed to have the most diverse cast out of all of the films.
Ridley whitewashed the heck out of Exodus, and I strongly feel that he needs to be fired from the ALIEN prequel project.
I do agree with Barf The Mog that more diversity is needed. In theory, Covenant had a bit with Carmen Ejogo, Jussie Smollet, Uli Latukefu, and Demian Bichir, (and maybe Callie Hernandez because she is Mexican-American), but only one of them were anything more than supporting/background characters. Aliens is also guilty of that, but I think the characters there were done well enough to where everyone (until half of them die lol) is pretty 3-dimensional (or close to it.)
I am guessing that if and when Awakening and the other possible sequel arrive, there will be more characters introduced, including a main character or two, at some point and AT LEAST one should be a non-white, female actor.
Still though, I think David should be treated as the clear cut main character at this point. Some Prometheus and/or David haters were mad that a lot of Covenant was dedicated to him and so I found it funny that he wasn't in trailers and was supposed to be a twist/surprise reveal of sorts.
Nonetheless, David is the main character for sure now. Daniels or Tennessee (or someone new as I said) will be the audiences emotional connection, but the villian of these prequels is the main character.
Not a map, an invitation
Who else is going to carry the narrative?
Shaw "I'd like to sit down with the Engineers and have a lengthy discussion, maybe share some thoughts on religion and their ancient pottery..."
Tennessee "I'd like to have a beer with them Engineers and discuss some cool stuff...maybe find me a new wife.."
Daniels "I really just want to build my cabin...in memory of my dead husband"
David "I want to kill the Engineers and every human I encounter...create something horrific"
Barf The Mog aliens had one black actor in it briefly. that is all.
vasquese was played by an american actor not a hispanic one so really the only diversity was the one or two scenes with the black captain.
alien 3 on the other hand had a black man being one of the main charectors and a central part to the story.

Timmy the ultramorph - The nurse in Aliens played by Alibe Parsons.
Hollywood is guilty of whitewashing, and the next ALIEN film (if it happens) with 2,000 colonists should be extensively diverse.
I agree with Jonesy! (next movie I want three Fassbanders!) :D
But it will be probably a new crew or someone from the Covenant. Oh, Yutani! The CEO of Yutani! I want to see Yutani!
Somewhere at Wayland-Yutani Corp.
Guy 1: "We need a new crew for our next space mission."
Guy 2: "Make it all Fassbender."
Everyone in the room: "DONE!"
We're 18 years behind Alien. I wouldn't be surprised if Alien: Awakening took place right around 18 years of Alien: Covenant, less a year possibly. I hope Alien doesn't directly continue off of Alien: Awakening.
So, I think when we see Alien: Awakening, everybody will have been experimented on and dead. New characters will be introduced to make physical contact with David since David sent WY that transmission. The Covenant likely has a tracking system on it, so I don't think David would be hard to find. Plus, the Covenant looks like a ship that is meant to fly straight and not make hard adjustments. Basically, what I am saying is that it is an easily predicable ship.
The main character would be one of the people working for WY, besides David of course.
Still, there is no telling. I am just going by the fact that A:C took place 10 years of Prometheus, so I think Ridley is going that route again. We don't need to see the experimentations and David is smart enough not to loose a colonist, which would start "mutiny" on the ship. Plus, I don't think he is going to experiment with Xeno's on the ship since the acid could tear the ship a part. David will probably stop at a nearby planet to experiment on. He might go back to Planet 4 and get ready for the arriving WY people.
The next question is, will the Engineers return to Planet 4 after it has been wiped out. If they do, they sure are taking there time. Maybe David sends a transmission to them telling the Engineers what he has done and a few return with the knowledge of the risks they are taking on by landing on Planet 4.
So, if Ridley Scott plans Alien: Awakening like he did Alien: Covenant, then everybody will be dead and new characters will be introduced. There is the time in the franchise for Ridley to do something like that too. I hope he does. That way we get a completely fresh and new story just like we got with Alien: Covenant.
Barf The Mog I totaly agree. I just thought that alien 3 was the most diverse because a main charector was ethnic.
forgot about the nurse though.

I think Daniels will be dead by the beginning of the next movie.
I'd love for Walter to still be in play.
I'm sure David is still going to feature prominently.
I think Tennessee and a random bad-a** female colonist will be our main protagonists.
As long as the character is well done then I don’t care. The problem with Prometheus and Covenant is that the characters were not that well developed/their personalities were not well done. Make the characters sympathetic and believable and I’m fine with that.
I don’t want David to be the main character because the humans is what is the most important thing since Alien if you think about it.
