The skull in 'Predators'. It was just another random ET creature design.

Now Berserker's jaw bone on his mask on the other hand... Isn't that contested?

I mean Antal and the NECA backstory suggest it's supposed to be a Xenomorph jaw bone but didn't our members also debunk that?

NECA came up with a really silly and frankly unbelievable back-story for Berserker, but I think all Antal would have said is that its meant to be the Jaw bone an alien life-form, not necessarily a Xenomorph.

Did the NECA packaging specifically say it was an Alien jaw? I don't remember.

No, just a ridiculous made up background, its on the avp wiki.

This may be one of the first things I'm actually HAPPY to hear him say. There may have been a time where the PREDATOR and AVP material could work in the ALIEN universe properly but that ship has sailed. I feel like I consider the AvP films part of the Predator franchise and Prometheus sorta part of the ALIEN universe.

That's one way to look at the franchises, and John Davis probably wanted to fit AvP in more with Predator than Aliens-- which is probably why people are upset about his involvement in the films. I mean WE ALL wanted it set more in the Alien timeline. And I think a lot of us would've been a lot happier with the end result but we didn't get that.

AVP could fit in more with the Predator franchise but... PREDATORS sort of gets in the way. Of course nothing in the film contradicts the AvP movies, so they could still happen of course but if you take authorial intent and Word of God into account (which in this case would be Rodriguez.. NOT Antal) then PREDATORS ignores Predator 2 and AvP to AvP-R.

I mean there are so many ways to look at the franchises and continuity. It's practically becoming, if not already become like the Godzilla franchise where there are so many continuity branches that canon's lost relevance.

But all in all.. I'm glad that we're not getting another AvP. I most certainly wouldn't want it with the direction Fox is going.
