I guess the company [Weilan-Yutani] could have knowledge of the Aliens, and may have dispatched another ship to investigate before the Nostromo was called in, and follow their story? Who know what the Scott brothers will come up with. Anything but to continue with "Resurection's" lame brain ideas.
That's the same concerns I have. They could really do something great with this, but the movie industry's latest offerings just don't inspire too much hope.
With regards to the comics and movies, I wouldn't be surprised if we see a Superman vs Predator vs Batman vs Alien.
Superman flies here from a suddenly unexploded Krypton. A Predator is ejecting from his ship to land on earth, Superman accidentally runs into him. They plummet to earth embraced in a death fall that leads them to......
Cut to Wayne Manor. Bruce is having tea with a suprisingly tame Alien. They've reconciled their differences and have vowed to fight crime together. Bruce walks over to the Alien, and they lock hands in a "We'll do this together!" embrace (camera zooms in on hands).
At that moment, Superman and the Predator land on Wayne Manor. They crash into the table where Bruce and the Alien were having their man moment. A piece of the crashing table knocks Bruces tea out of his hand and onto the Alien.
In the Alien culture, having tea spilled on you is the worst offense that can be committed.
(Camera pulls back to show all four characters)
They all stand in the middle of the dining room, eyes locked on one another, fists clinched.
(Camera zooms in on all four sets of eyes, one after another)
All of them are waiting for someone to make the first move. Now, here is where the drama in our action movie takes place. Bruce doesn't have his Batsuit on. He's still only Bruce Wayne.
(Camera cuts to the other three characters, showing that they've realized this)
The Alien is closest, and reaches over to rip Bruces head off. Next, in an attempt to piss Matt Stevens off, they only show a drop of blood and keep the PG13 rating, not daring to step into R territory for lack of ticket sales.
Superman takes offense to the atrocity committed against his fellow crime fighter, and squashes the Alien. The Aliens blood spatters all over the Predator, killing him. Superman wins. He flies to Metropogotham and fights crime.
Cut back to Bruces house. Movement is seen from the Predator. Suddenly, a baby Predator appears from it's stomach, wearing a blue spandex suit and red cape. Que rock and roll music for credits.
Damn, I'm bored at work today.
