Following the news of Marvel Comics having acquired the rights for the Aliens and Predator franchises from Dark Horse back in July this year, we are finally seeing the first signs of Xenomorphs under Marvel’s new direction starting as soon as January 2021, in the form of comic cover variants across a bunch of Marvel comics. Yes, they are only comic cover variants for now, and nothing more.
This is probably a prelude to bigger things later in the year, perhaps with Predator involvement. Maybe we’ll even have an epic big screen crossover of Aliens vs Predator vs Marvel Cinematic Universe in a few years time? A geek can only hope.
For now, let’s marvel at the beautiful cover variants we’ll get to see next year.
