There is a new episode of the Xenomorphing podcast out (episode 3,5 LOL). This time they discuss if there should be an Alien 5 or not. I appreciate that there are people that discuss this franchise even though I might disagree with what they are saying. When we think about the fact that this has been around for more than 40 years it is impressive that there are still people that are interested enough to keep discussing it like this.

Here is the page if you want to give it a listen:

IF and i think thats a BIG if we got a 3rd Prequel then who knows.....

I dont think that the Perfecting of Davids Queen would have meant we get to the Aliens Queen... i am not sure that RS would go and introduce the Cameron's Queen as a Money Shot for his Prequel Series.....

But with DISNEY in Control this could be something they would FORCE upon the Prequels.. but i cant see Disney being interesting in any kind of Continuation.

Back to the OT

I have already said that i DONT think you have to and that its WISE to just go and bring back Ellen Ripley.  If they want to see Miss Weaver make a Return then i think they have to WORK with a Continuation of Ripley 8 or leave the Ripley Saga alone......

There are other Avenues to do a ALIEN V and as i have said i think you would have to STICK really close to the Xenomorph Aesthetic we have seen for this Reintroduction to the Franchise... at least in the FIRST Movie.

I think you lay some SEEDS down towards the Engineers so that this OPENS up something to go back to with a Sequel, but does-not Necessarily mean that has to be the case.

I think i may have to agree with LETO as far as HOW you END a New ALIEN Movie, by that we cant WRITE a Story that is Expecting Sequels in-case you simply WONT get any.

so you can leave some things that mean something could be OPEN to explore IF we got a Sequel.... and by that if you look at LV-223 after Prometheus, or LV-426 after Alien then they are left open to Explore....

Rather than a ENDING where it would indicate their is something NEXT.... such as the Prometheus Ending...

BD: I am not interested in another Alien movie if that means another movie that has Ripley in it. Even Alien R had the clone and even though it was not the original it failed. Pleasing a majority will be difficult but to have a story and enough well-made characters is something that I think could work but I do not want any Ripley connection what so ever.

About the prequels, I would not be very sad if they write them out of canon because they are not very good even though they sure have parts that I enjoy. You mention if there would be any conflict with them. My take on it is that as long as they do not contradict 1, 2, and 3 I could maybe be alright with it but at the same time I am not sure if they would work if we would get writers like the prequels and a director that does not care about the characters.

Daliens eventually wrote this


"most people want to see characters and landscapes they can relate with. . . "

I agree, villains can be interesting too if they are well written (think Batman, in many cases) but in general if I do not have characters that fight the good fight or that I can relate to then I don't care. Without characters it doesn't work no matter how interesting the themes are or how good it looks. Covenant and Prometheus looked good but lack well made characters so therefore they are at the lower part of my Alien list so to speak. The original three have characters, the prequels generally don't.

"How many people posting here don't want to see the continuation of the David's arc because they cannot relate to a robot?"

F no! I can only speak for myself, I would probably point finger or sigh if they do another prequel like that although he could have a small role like the Bishop android in Alien 3 but not more.

Have it being biomechanoid would be interesting but that is not my major concern. Prometheus and Covenant look good although I was disappointed in the Engineer city but if they can do something better then sure.

"I honestly believe that the best solution in this moment is to let Ridley Scott do the sequel to Alien Covenant. . ."  

Not if that means him being involved in the story. He is one of the reasons why we got this David thing. Let him handle the visuals but keep him far away from the script. Keep the script to those that can write a story.

MonsterZero: I don’t think that they all sound depressed but I can at least think of one that you might think of. I can understand that some people might feel a bit down if they have been looking forward to Blomkamp's movie and then it gets canceled especially when we see how Covenant went which to me is mostly bad.
