Title: Should Disney reboot Alien vs. Predator? [Space.com]

QuoteNext up for the Alien and Predator franchises are a TV series led by Noah Hawley and a new film titled Prey respectively. Both stories appear to be breaking away from previous instalments and looking to expand their universes' horizons. While all that sounds like a refreshing change of pace, there may be something worth recovering from the pasts of these two iconic space creatures. So, should Disney reboot Alien vs. Predator?

Yes. Yes, they should.

I'd be much happier if the franchises stayed in separate lanes.

Prey seems to finally be getting the Predator series back on track in exciting ways after the last couple movies, Covenant molded the Alien prequels into something I'm genuinely interested in, and the Hawley show has me feeling pretty cautiously optimistic right now.

Not itching for a crossover anytime soon.

So you mean a direct adaptation of the original comic, with any sequels swerving hard away from War, then, right?

No, a 1:1 faithful adaptation of DOTS.

I don't care too much about adapting original comics. Just treat creatures with more respect than two monsters punching each other. They should feel like a mythological beasts that fought for centuries, please no Predators encountering Aliens for the first time bullshit. I might get heat for it, but as far as, lore additions go, I think 2004 movie did a good job. I love whole "ancient aliens" angle of it, Predators teaching humans how to build pyramids, re-nterpreting sacrificial rituals of civilisations long gone as being merely a part of Predators hunting routine etc. I would love these concepts being explored further by a better filmmaker

Oh, and set it in the future

It'll be a modern design that's evocative of the golden age styling, respecting the original work while dumping all over it.

I've come around to the idea of an AvP animated series these last few years, seeing the mature animations produced by Netflix. There was that rumor that Netflix already finished the first season of an animated AvP.

Disney just has to work out the legal issues and release that on Disney Plus if that's possible.

If by "reboot" they just mean "give us more AVP in every possible medium", then yes, yes they should.

Depending on success of the upcoming Predator (Prey) and Alien movies, we may very well get a AVP reboot from Disney and I feel we really should, but please be R rating (I know rating isn't everything) and please look at the games and comics to truly understand the property and give us the crossover we deserve. Aw and not on EARTH!!

Non-Earth and Colonial Marines seem to be a safe bet at least.
But yes, Prey doing well would get the grinds rolling.
Also for Terminator 7 (or is it 6?).

Fine, I'll bite. >:(

I'll only accept an AVP Reboot EVEN if it dismisses AVP and AVP-R but ONLY if it doesn't count PREDATORS, The Predator, Prometheus and Covenant as part of it's continuity.

No Predator sub-species. No Engineers. No black slime.

There, I said it.

I'm still so desperate to see that simple AvP story. Whether it's an adaptation of the comic or not, I just want a simple narrative that just does the clash justice following the bare basics from the comic. It wouldn't even have to actively go out of its way to ignore any of the previous entries. Just good character and good set pieces and monster action.

My current version is entirely stand alone but also fits in whatever the f**k continuity occurs in the future.

As of late Disney brings a bad taste in my mouth wether it be by feeling the need to insert politics in everything or just doing a terrible job i.e. star wars.

That being said i would be hesitant for them to reboot or create anything with either of the 2. If thier anything like thier new alien and predator comics then PLEASE NOO! However they can win me back by making a movie based of the comic of the Elder (greyback) backstory with the flintlock.

Honestly, after enduring the insults that were the AvP films, us fans have gotten some pretty damn good content.

At least I've gotten so much of what I want already: AvP and AvP-R stricken from continuity (thank you Alien Covenant). A new predator film set in the past (I made a fake trailer using scenes from Apocalypto, AvP and Predator as a proof of concept of this ages ago. So happy to see it being made), and a new Alien film and TV series announced. The only thing that needs to be done is for Ridley Scott to finish his prequel trilogy.

Aliens vs. Predator is absolutely a viable concept.

Saying it could never be done well is like saying the Predator concept is trash because look at The Predator

Post by: BlueMarsalis79 on Aug 12, 2022, 11:34:49 AM
They already rebooted it, Feral's technology's meant to be a precursor to Predator 1987, particularly the wrist computer. Having a more primitive iteration of the explosive. That obviously contradicts AVP 2004, and by extension also AVP Requiem, AVP 2010 and everyone's absolute favourite The Predator, then on the Alien side of things you have the whole Peter Weyland thing contradicting AVP as well.

So it will absolutely be a reboot in some fashion when they get around to AVP.

Dunno about PRey contradicting its later movies, he had some technology like cloak that was way better at hiding than jungle hunters was and wrist computer to me seemed not older but just different options, he was supposed to kill himself if we go after what previous movies teached us. :P But anyway to me prey work well with the lore and dont changes anything, his design is explained by the artist and team behind it so it works, lore wise I have no issues with it. Which is damn impressive.

AVP movies I see as spinn offs, maybe only canon to the predator lore, alien nope nope, not same universe or whatever predator fans claims. :P
