If you saw the Advent video, you'll know that Daniels giving birth to the xeno queen is implied. Of course "Queen" could also refer to other things, but i'll assume it's the "b*tch" for the sake of this discussion.

If they follow through the "War Of The Worlds" scenario that Ridley mentioned, they'll want many aliens. So the queen could appear early on, if that's the case, Daniels won't be the lead character. Unless something forces David to pick someone else.

The main complaint about Daniels is that she's a Ripley "rehash". I doubt they'd give us yet another strong female lead because of the complaints and comparisons to Ripley.

So unless someone else births the queen, they'll get another lead and that lead could be a male.

If Daniels stays the lead, i imagine she'd carry the queen till the end of the movie and sacrifice herself ala Alien 3. She could also extract it medpod-style. Or like said before, she won't be host to the queen. Carrying the queen or extracting it have already been done before and hence their improbability.

I just think it's a discussion to be had.

I apologize if this text is poorly written

I dont think so.The queen is Camerons stupidity.As you said queen can refer to other things, possible Daniels.

Because he said that he will do the same on Daniels that he did on Shaw.She had queen corone like organic parts on the head.

Of course! It would be good to see Theo James as a male lead, but why don't we have more important characters? I want Olga Kurylenko, Rooney Mara, Juliette Binoche, Alex Pettyfer, Tom Hiddleston... Aaahh, that would be too expensive!

In my opinion the lead is always be David, so yes it would be great if Awakening features a male lead. I prefer Shaw being the queen cause she is the one who searched for human origin.

I’m going for a wild stab in the dark here. But could the next major lead end up being Ripley’s dad?

@Walter bingo I totally agree with you there. Haven't seen "Advent" yet but I cannot believe that RS will allow a "Queen". Of course, Fox is probably the ones in control at this point, and not RS anything could happen.
