Its likely that it won't address Predator and the pyramid material will probably be retconned.
Scott orginally intended for the crew of the Nostromo to find the Xenomorph eggs inside a massive pyramid on Acheron, not on the derelict ship. Budget
constraints halted that idea and they went with the eggs on the ship.
I fully expect the pyramids to return in Prometheus,
The pyramid is ancient, primitive and clearly of a different design to the derelict. We are dealing with a different alien here: the dead ship
appears to be visitors from elsewhere, the pyramid seems indigenous. Walking around it they find no entrance., any entrance must have been buried in
the shifting sands of time. So Kane uses his climbing gear to crawl to the top of the monolith. where he finds an open shaft going straight
Though based on the original script and Scott poking fun, we may find out that Acheron was the Predator homeworld and the Space Jockeys caused their
extinction, thus ending any chance of Predators in a colonial era based film.
One film I do expect to be alluded to though is Avatar. I can't imagine Scott not having some references to Avatar in Prometheus, even though Cameron
has said Avatar isn't exactly in the same universe as Aliens. Another is Blade Runner and Scott himself said Alien and Blade Runner are in the same
universe, linking replicants with the synthetics. Cameron's Hyperdyne Systems in Aliens raises even more amusing connections. Imagine an Arnold
synthetic in an Alien film.
