I was thinking more of a horror universe. Blumhouse to a degree, or Stephen King's favorite vacation spot, Castle Rock.  Loose connections. Plenty of terror. No quips.  ;)

Of course, I would like  to be proven wrong on that one  ;)

I think they should utilize the Dark Universe....since the current Dark Universe kind of tanked.....with the Mummy and Invisible man...which is yet to come out.

Great podcast, really nice to chill and listen to a bunch of other fans geek out.
There was so many different ways mooted of how the franchise could continue, a lot of which would be fine with me.

I think the reality is that we won't see anything theatrical or TV wise for a good while- the comics/novels and perhaps video games will tick along and keep it going until then.

Despite Ridley saying it's in progress, I'm not so sure his final prequel will get made. And I'm one of the people who generally rates the prequels, for all their flaws. Perhaps David's story will be finished in another medium.

They should definitely reconsider how the alien universe can be portrayed on a smaller budget. Claustrophobic, but still hinting at a wider universe without showing it.
Even Aliens was actually a relatively small budget wasn't it, when putting it in context of the time? The final explosion was a light bulb under some cotton wool.

I'd totally be down with a TV series set in another corner of the universe. Concentrate on the struggles of a group of colonists and only hint at the aliens, build it up. Similar to how the RPG campaign approaches. Or a Predator series with each season set in a totally different time period.

Also totally down with seeing some other creatures, the black goo can facilitate that as long as it doesn't become too much of an easy plot device.
Other people mentioned the neomorph but I also think the Trilobite creature was cool as hell.

Man, I'd almost forgotten how much I love that AVP: The Hunt Begins artwork. Such a good image.

That was a good listen! Thanks to the prevalence of AVP content growing up I've always liked to imagine that the Alien and Predator universes were one and the same, so I'd definitely love it if they just finally made it totally officially official (as opposed to just partially official, of course). I don't ever want the "AVP" branding to go away, but I'd be totally down for one big all-encompassing Alien/Predator Universe.

That's one of the reasons I love the Alien RPG so much is that it basically takes everything and presents it as a real universe of Alien content. I'm just hoping that Free League eventually relents to all the constant requests for a Predator sourcebook and eventually makes one so that it can truly be complete! ;D

But yeah I definitely wouldn't want them to throw everything out and start from scratch to get there, if only because let's face it, they're never going to top the absolute best movies of either series no matter how good any potential reboot might be. I agree that they could do some unconnected stories off in some far-flung corner of the universe just fine without necessarily having to be burdened by the continuity of the existing films if they really wanted, and I'd be all for an approach like that.

I definitely want another AVP film at some point though, likewise unconnected to the existing too. And another game, for sure. No more prequels though. :P

Y'know as much as I'd like a Predator show kind of like The Mandolorian, part of me would be interested in a take on Predator in the style of The Clone Wars. Or even an animated adaptation of the first AVP like it.

Fun listen fellas! Looking to 2021 we already know we have 2 new Alien novels coming from Titan and hopefully that trend continues as I’ve really enjoyed consistently reading new A/P novels. Comics wise I’m confident that Marvel will give us at least one Aliens and one Predator series and potentially a crossover per year. Games: the new MMO hopefully releases next year and hopefully Hunting Grounds gets a single player mode but other than that I’m unsure if we’ll see anything new on the game side of things for some time after that. I really hope the AVP anime gets green lit in the near future. Other than that I hope to see Alien or Predator get an 8-10 episode live action series in the near future. Regardless next year already looks promising so let’s hope that bodes well for the future under Disney.

Same here. A series is really what I’d like to see in the future, for both franchises. For Predators, something maybe along the same line as “Predators”, with perhaps a condensed Lost-like spin, with the objective being (like the movie) to return home. I think that could have potential.

I haven’t listened to the podcast yet, but I do sense that Alien in particular has a bright future in the coming year  :)

I want to see an alien series. Different characters and stories that play out in alien universe. I don’t want to see Ripley again. It’s time to move on.

That would indeed be a cool concept for a Predator series! I’ve said it before but something like “Band of Brothers” meets Predator would be something I’d like to see!

With Hollywood imploding right now, AAA movies forced into a direct-to-home box office experiment gone wrong with millions (billions?) in revenue lost in the process. Even Sony/MGM with No Time To Die (ironic name) was toying with the idea of home streaming- but wanted of $660 million upfront as collateral rather than risk the royalties model.Then CineWorld going bust in the UK as part of the same Bond delay debacle. All things cinematic ALIENS getting greelit anytime soon, is wishful thinking at this point. Especially as Disney has made no announcements and is also recoiling from the failure of tentpole Mulan (2020).

True we might look back in 10 years from now and we've written off the Xenomorph too many times before only for it to bounce back with egg on,some of, our faces.

Like the videogame crash of the early 1980s look at where we're at now, it's been booming the past 30 years! Hopefully cinema and ALIENS will return.
Don't count on netflix though, I heard even they are experience turbulent times with controversies and reports of subscription cancellations.
Some people were blaming "that french underage movie" but given the timing and covid sounds like an excuse with a get out clause to save cash on a 12 month lock in contract, while being furloughed.

Perhaps. But you really want to hear them announcing something? I mean, they can come and say:

"Dear fans (Marvel fans)...

It is a pleasure for us to announce that two new purchases join our beloved superhero family. Their universe does not interest us, so we prefer to take these two monsters to play with them in our favorite sandbox. You know, the one that it's actually profitable according to our most optimistics standards as a megacorporation".


Now you can expect superheroes flicks that often featured Aliens and Predators.  :-X

Or perhaps integrated in Star Wars universe, where the Alien becomes a Sith machination and the Predators are a race of bounty hunters from the Galactic Rim...
