I love Alien 3 and have nostalgia for Resurrection, but I admit it’s a little enticing to render them hyper-sleep dreams to fix:
-the change in design of the Sulaco and cryo tubes
-the unexplained Sulaco egg we’ve been arguing about for 28 years
-Resurrection’s overall weirdness in general
-the fact that most EU is hard to justify after General Perez’s comments
I also just want this IP to be popular and successful again. If bringing Ripley back for a colonial marine fan-service wankfest is what it takes, maybe it’s needed. It also seems like the path Disney would most likely want to take. But unless Hill or Blomkamp have some unique, weird, bold ideas wrapped up in their pitches, this would feel like selling out.
Ridley’s path feels bold and new. I’d rather continue with that.
