'''Chris''': I honestly canít. Presumably future movies would all revolve around the [[SuperDickery Super-Deadbeat Dad]] from Krypton bonding with his son, and Richard quietly becoming subservient to the alien overlord [[RomanticRunnerUp who stole his girlfriend]].

Why should all creative decisions in the ''{{Franchise/Alien}}'' franchise from now until the end of time be straightjacketed by two lackluster movies, both of which have been largely [[AlanSmithee disowned by their creators?]] Why should a new writer stifle his creative freedom to preserve the sanctity and validity of two (at best) mediocre movies? If the choice is between bringing back Ripley and Hicks and tossing out a couple of movies few people liked, I think the vast majority of fans would gladly throw ''Alien≥'' in the trash.\\\
And letís face it, any attempt to try to reconcile an older Ripley and Hicks with their apparent ďdeathsĒ in ''Alien≥'' is most likely going to be [[AssPull really stupid]]...

[[MundaneFantastic It's an actual prison.]] With spotlights, steel walkways, force fields, key cards, and guards that shoot lasers out of their staffs. The last time we saw the Netherrealm was in ''Ultimate VideoGame/MortalKombat3'', where it was just the standard fire and brimstone depiction of Hell. Either this is a more developed part of the Netherrealm that nobody's ever bothered visiting again afterwards, or Midway just quietly retconned it out of existence, which is the more likely theory."''
