So what do you want?

A movie with one xenomorph. Something like Alien or Alien 3.
Just give me a movie with multiple xenomorphs.
Xenomorphs are ok. But I also want other variations like neomorphs and deacons.
I want more Engineers, black goo and strange creatures. Xenomorphs and AI optional.

Edit:
In this scenario. The prequel trilogy is finished. David's story's all wrapped up.

At this point, all I want is narrative conclusion with David’s story and an explanation of the derelict on LV-426.
“All other priorities rescinded.”

(But varying creature designs helps keep things fresh, so I voted for the xenos with variations option.)

I want a follow up to Covenant that retrospectively sheds a realistic light on who the Engineers are (ie. human creations, another company who did Replicant-like creations to colonise worlds or something like that).

I want the Derelict on LV-426 to be millions of years old and of unknown origin.

I want what Prometheus aimed to do, expand the universe.  Alien is the core and I think exploring more of the mysterious side of things such as the goo or the engineers is fascinating and doesn't just make the franchise about Aliens killing people.  I'm not really sure how they would go about doing this as Covenant was originally supposed to do it with exploring the engineers home world.  At this point they have a slight chance of injecting more mystery into the universe if they conclude David's story appropriately.  They should finish what they started, but in answering where the Alien and Derelict came from they should pose a larger question or questions so that franchise can branch off from the Alien directly.  If they make more movies after finishing the prequels (if they ever get to) then I think we should get a movie that takes place after resurrection at least in the timeline of everything not necessarily following Ripley or anyone else we have seen.

Ridley should just make the movie he wants too.

I agree, ridley has slowly been working to the original alien, its time he goes all in. You need another option on the poll. I want what I am expecting and what ridley has led us to expect. I want more David, him finnaly perfecting the xenomorphs, and the Engineers revenge\history. I don't see how new alien variants and black goo creatures would show up in the new movie but if possible sure, throw them in. It seems Ridley has been tip toeing around what really needs to happen. IT IS TIME!

I'm way too concerned with what Ridley might do in his next movie, since I don't want any chance of him making David the space jockey from ALIEN...

Throw a "reboot" far into the future, past Alien Ressurection. New story, characters, classic aliens, no goo creatures, engineers are welcome if they want to keep it consistent with the prequels  if not bring the space jockey back.

I want a movie that can expand the alien lore while keeping the classic elements.

I would like to see the franchise return to its roots, without any of the previous players. No Ripley, Newt, Hicks, or Bishop. No retconning. Just new people and places. In my opinion, Isolation felt just about right, and was the natural narrative and stylistic direction the films should have followed. The characters were great, the style was spot on, and the alien was scary as hell. And personally, I find the seagson androids far more frightening than David ever could be. It's just my opinion, but Isolation mops the floor with every single movie featuring a xenomorph since Alien 3. It's time to move on from this road to nowhere. We could've explained the derelict by now. We could've seen the fall of the company by now. Had we have gotten something similar to Gibson's Alien 3, there's no telling what kind of money and attention this franchise would be receiving right now.

Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't mind another movie featuring the military engineers, like Prometheus. But look what happened in covenant. If the direction we're headed narratively is going to be devoid of every interesting/intelligent thing and person except David, then it's just not worth the bother. It's nice to know that David can play the flute and kiss himself, but what in heaven's name does that have to do with an Alien movie?

I want engineers, aliens, the whole damn thing.

In this franchise, I think Ridley does have things his way. And that, may be the problem.

I don't think that. It seems he took the criticism from Prometheus and tried to do what he wanted and please the fans at the same time in Covenant. Covenant was good but could have been amazing if he ignored the haters and did what he wanted. That weird reference to the original Alien in the ending was him trying to please the fans who love the sequels. It is obvious the Alien fans are split and he can't please both. He needs to choose a side and forget the other. If you disagree watch Covenant.

Whether it's one xenomorph or multiple xenomorphs doesn't matter.  It's the vision of the filmmakers.  Multiple aliens worked perfectly for James Cameron's Aliens because it's a war film.

It is indeed difficult to be all things to all people. I wouldn't necessarily call people who disagreed with the direction of the prequels as "haters". Even I enjoyed Prometheus for what it was. I think Ridley does indeed make the movie he wants us to see. Every frame that winds up on screen is the story he wants to tell. He is a master film-maker, and I don't see him compromising his vision for a film. But, we're all different. That's what makes for so many unique and interesting ideas and directions for this franchise. For people that like the prequels, it's a great time to be an Alien fan. I wish I felt the same way. Alas, I don't. But that's just me. I still think that wiping out the engineers like that was a poor idea though. The whole movie just felt so empty.

And that, is the stone cold truth.

I would call them haters. I can't make one post without tons of people supporting the sequels and saying the prequels "ruined years of canon spin of stories". Am I the only one who sees the massive prequel hate? I love the prequels.

There is no massive prequel hate (at least around here).  Most people are able to make legitimate criticisms without descending into hate.

Rare Scorpio mention of Aliens in a positive light. This one's a keeper.

Personally, I'd go for small story, one Alien, David story finished.

or

Reboot the whole lot.
