Alien Vs Predator: Requiem: Dreaming of an Alien King

leading from

Kenner Alien King

a) Colin and Greg Strause were cooking up a scenario for a Predator hunt on the surface of an alien planet for an King Alien, that would have been a huge giant winged alien creature, and years later we still might want to see official concept art for this creature.
  1. What was the plan for the third Aliens Versus Predator movie? We heard that you wanted it to lead directly into Ridley Scott's Alien.
    Greg Strause: The original ending for AVPR, that we pitched them, ended up on the alien homeward, and actually going from the Predator gun, that you see at the end, it was going to transition from that gun to a logo of a Weyland-Yutani spaceship that was heading to an alien planet.
    And then we were actually going to cut down to the surface [of the alien planet] and you were going to see a hunt going on. It was going to be a whole tribe of predators going against this creature that we called "King Alien." It's this huge giant winged alien thing.(
b) The dream of an Alien king had been floating around for some years, perhaps ever since the Vincent Ward Alien 3 script planned for another kind of alien that would merge with the surroundings implant fetuses in hosts and people wanted to think about where this thing places itself in the alien hierarchy after Jim Cameron's Alien Queen.

c) Something near enough an Alien King turned up in comic book story Rogue Alien, April-July 1993 , a creation engineered by a human, designed to rival the alien queen.

d) Also some time after Alien 3 came out, the Kenner Aliens toy line came up with an Alien King, that appeared to be a large stocky alien beast with semi-wing coming out of the head, perhaps as weapons, but it was designed as an action toy more than anything else and not related to any known film related ideas about the beast.  It also had mandibles coming out of the side of the head making it look as if had atrophied remnants of Predator mandibles

e) They also released a winged alien queen which looked as if it might have inspired the Strause's dream of a flying Alien King more so.
