That means the Gibson comic adaptation really f**ked up the pacing, if it simultaneously needed both more and fewer issues.

This was neat, and there's no telling how the film would have been executed, but I'll stick with the Alien 3 we got. Parts of it I enjoyed, but I didn't think Hicks and Bishop had a presence that felt very satisfying among other things. There were some cool visuals and interesting ideas, and it seemed to actually tie in weirdly close to Prometheus/Covenant in certain ways which was an odd surprise.

They felt squandered in the comic, they felt like they had a lot more to do in the audio drama.

I think you guys are both right.  Hopefully a better story will one day be told in film where Michael Biehn gets a chance to shine.  One of my all-time favourite actors, if truth be told.

I know it's a super-niche part of the fandom that wants this, but a story that builds Hicks from the ground up (from boot camp to being assigned with his crew from the Sulaco) would be fun.

The Hicks story in Bug Hunt was a bit hit and miss.

Speaking of -verses I pitched an idea to Fox that they follow up Gibson's Alien 3 with Eric Red's, Twohy's and Ward's (where Ripley survives).  The survivors of all four stories then unite Avengers-style for new original climax story.


They didn't call back.  ;D

That's because you didn't mention climate change, dubstep and unshaven hackers with man buns.

Didn't they move the SM hotline to Bob Iger's office yet?
