Sigourney Weaver and the Aliens have always been the two stars of the Alien franchise. I'd like to see her again out there in A5. I really don't think she's mad at AVP because she's not in it, rather it's her own personal disdain for the 'vs.' trend; she did say she hopes AVP makes a lot of money for the studio. As for 'I died to avoid AVP', I think that is somewhat of a free interpretation; in other interviews she said she just wanted to die to end the series, she didn't "want to be out there on an spaceship, there was an alien onboard, and no one believes Ripley" situation. For the Aliens franchise, Sigourney probably doesn't remember what a powerloader is, she also didn't remember what Hicks' name was in the 2nd film, so what. She's done way too many films and stage shows to remember everything. She's not a fanboy. Going back to A5, there's a reason why James Cameron refused to write Sigourney out of Aliens because "Ripley is the franchise." The storyline has been damaged by the atrocious AR, but I would like to see an older Ripley out there facing the aliens one last time, to finally deal with where the aliens came from. Plus new Colonial Marines with really futuristic weaponry would be cool. They could explain Ripley being older by noting the accelerated aging that occurs in some cloning processes. Even so, I think it would be very interesting for once to break the ageist attitudes of Hollywood and have an older woman being a hero. P.S. Comments about being 'senile' and 'deaf' are rather immature and speak to the crudeness of some fans.
