The best way to go forward is to finish what they started - that is Ridley Scott's prequel trilogy then a sequel to Alien Resurrection.  Both ended on cliffhangers that left the series in limbo. 


Agreed, but no-one wants a sequel to Resurrection.
No-one reporting, hell yea I want a sequel to Resurrection.  8)

Ridley Scott's like 81 years old, he better hurry up and make Alien: Titanic!

Already saw that in a dream. It was great.

Was Bill Paxton in it?

No, but it was still quite a rush.
Oh and by Titanic, I mean Space Titanic, and by Space Titanic I mean the Derelict. I mean if we're going to retcon old to new it might as well be one hell of a Space Iceberg that sinks the Derelict.

The options they have going forward:

*Sequel to Resurrection
*Alien Awakening
*Remake (f**k that)
*Side-quel - maybe focusing on Amanda Ripley, semi-remake possibly
*Another AVP (doubtful)
*Retcon - strong possibility, it's trending atm

By retcon you do mean Alien 5 or Aliens 2 right? How about Alien 2424. I'd take that.

Noomi as an actor is leaps and bounds ahead of Katherine. She has a way stronger screen presence. Just a shame a lot of her dialogue and motivations in Prometheus were atrocious. But regardless of that, I still feel like there's proper closure needed for her character and it was probably not the best move to kill her in between films.

Katherine unfortunately just felt like she was filling a role and not much more. Perhaps they could give her something more substantial to work with in the next one, I dunno.

I would love something like ‘The Crossing’ but with more characters.

I'm thinking more and more that was the intention.
She wasn't supposed to be another Ripley or Shaw. Because she not the main character in the story.
The main characters are David and Walter.

Yeah, I was thinking that too, and the movie is better viewed that way. But at the same time, she takes on a commanding role once the Alien is born and it feels like we're supposed to get behind her as she fights the Alien, but I just never could honestly. She's also the one established with some common sense at the start of the film, so I think there was some intention of her character to be as strong as Shaw or Ripley.

What are the chances all the other colonists end up getting turned into the alien eggs we see in the deralict in the first movie.
Or David creating the Alien Queen that lays the eggs in the first movie?
Tooo many questions


Enjoy

Just like Alien Resurrection hinted at a sequel back in 1997, 20th Century Fox took a look at box office receipts and hit the cancellation button.
When the Alien Covenant bombed, they did the same thing. 
The Alien / Prometheus prequel time-line is dead, effectively.
When we eventually do see the Alien franchise return to the big screen (and I'm convinced it will happen), it won't a continuation of what Ridley Scott had planned (although I would have loved to have seen what David did next).  I think they'll instead revisit the Ripley character, or, most likely, her daughter, Amanda.
Reduce the budget, take the franchise back to it's horror-house roots.  That's what I think is more likely.

Until there's 100% confirmation of its cancellation then it's safe to assume that everything is pending right now. Fox franchise consultant Andrew Gaska has stated that the plan is one more prequel at a significantly reduced budget, it's just Disney's move now.

Until we get third movie, Michael Fassbender will be old and fat  ;D

Scott has hijacked this franchise long enough. I hope he will never make another Alien movie again. Haters shouldn't direct a movie.
