Not sure how I feel about this. If Prometheus 2 never happens perhaps I can forget about the first one in time.
I really hated all the year of our lord bullshit at the end of P1. In my mind there is certainly no freaking God in the Alien universe and I can't help but feel that a weak writer will try and write a popular script pandering to the predominately religious masses and go in that direction, which I think is the exact opposite of what the Alien universe is about.
Thinking along these lines actually just makes me hate on Prometheus, why the hell couldn't the engineers be monstrous aliens as depicted so excellently in Alien rather than humans in suits, I could almost believe in a God if we were one of a myriad of crazy creations over the vast expanse of space, I'm surprised the "engineers" didn't have pointy ears. Talk about lack of imagination.
Frankly I’m not surprised they are struggling to find a writer, how the hell is the story going to continue? Shaw is going to land on their planet, walk about with David’s head chatting to engineers? Perhaps the Decon stowed away so we can get some Alien on Alien killing action, because you know, that always works.
I really want something to look forward to in the Alien universe, but Prometheus 2 doesn't feel like it.
