Tues, February 25, Elon Musk got the attention of of Twitter by posting a surprising image. It was a fan art of Alita photoshopped onto the side of a rocket. Naturally, we were excited about the tweet. The photoshop image was created by @JohnnySciFi using fan art from Francesco Canonico on Instagram (linked at the bottom of this post). @ChallengerST had been tweeting the image to Elon repeatedly since the summer of 2019. His persistence paid off.

As of this writing, Elon’s tweet has 98.7k likes. We’re hoping it reaches 99k for #99 (Alita)!

Comicbook.com published an article about Elon Musk’s tweet (while erroneously calling the cyborg Alita an android):


Jon Landau and Rosa Salazar reacted to the tweet. While Robert Rodriguez and Ed Skrein both retweeted it.

The original artist is found on Instagram at the link below:

We are a community of Alita: Battle Angel fans who are dedicated to supporting Alita and Rosa Salazar POSITIVELY. If you want to help Alita get a sequel, the best way to do it is to be vocal, be active, and be positive. Being respectful to other fans and fan bases while using the "#AlitaArmy" hashtag will do #AlitaBattleAngel a lot of good. Alita needs us. We are all she's had for support.

  1. I made a deal with myself to not post here so often anymore, but……

    YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ….. HOW FREKKN’ AWESOME!!!!!!!


  2. If Musk is smart, he’d phone up Cameron RIGHT NOW, hands over $ 170 mio for “Alita: Fallen Angel” and gets a $ 200 mio. return on his investment for this time around it will make $ 750 mio. easily. (Half the fandom missed Alita at the movies.)

    Twitter canceled my account 30 minutes after signing up. (Didn’t do anything.)
