There are many plot possibilities that are worth thinking about while the Alita Army awaits for Disney to confirm the making of “Alita: Battle Angel 2.” One of them is whether or not Alita (Rosa Salazar) should meet a new love interest with Hugo (Keean Johnson) most likely gone for good.

Alita: Battle Angel 2’ plot possibilities: Will Alita meet someone new in Zalem?

Much of the plot in the first movie was spent with Alita trying to understand who she really was and accepting how she is different from others. The latter was made a tad easier by the loving people around him, including her father figure, Dr. Ido (Christoph Waltz), and her love interest Hugo.

Unfortunately, the first film ended on a bittersweet note. Alita saw Hugo falling to his death while he was attempting to climb up to Zalem. Alita killed Vector (Mahershala Ali), but she knows well that the real enemy is Nova (Edward Norton), who is in Zalem. The “sweet” aspect of the cliffhanger ending is that Alita is well on her way to reaching Zalem by winning the Motorball tournament. “Alita: Battle Angel 2” will most likely pick up from these events.

It is very plausible to find Alita in Zalem in the sequel, but vengeance cannot be all there is to the story of “Alita: Battle Angel 2.” Alita might continue the path of learning more about her past. Meanwhile, the aspect of meeting a new romance is possible but does not sound necessary to make Alita whole as a character.

It is also worth noting that the first movie did not show Hugo’s corpse, which leaves room for his possible return in “Alita: Battle Angel 2.” Anyone who has watched enough TV shows and movies know that without a corpse, a character can still return from the dead.

Alita: Battle Angel 2’ release date speculations: How many years would it take before the sequel is made?

The Alita Army is hell-bent on convincing Disney that “Alita: Battle Angel 2” is worth producing. No one knows for now how the studio will decide, but even if the sequel is confirmed in 2020, it could still take years to be made.

Development of the first movie started way back in the early 2000s, but James Cameron’s busy schedule is one of the reported reasons its production has been delayed several times. When looking forward to “Alita: Battle Angel 2,” it should be noted that Cameron has several “Avatar” sequels to work on as director, producer, and co-writer with release dates set through 2027.
