Erik Kain of Forbes finally got around to watching Alita, thanks to the film playing on HBO, and he is now a fan:
“Thank goodness I (watched Alita), finally. Better late than never, as they say. Though there’s a bitter-sweetness to the viewing: The movie ends with such a clear setup for a sequel, it’s almost unfathomable that we might not get one.”
“Disney has no reason not to make an Alita sequel. The movie made just under $405 million, which is a lot for an IP that’s relatively unknown.”
“Disney would be wise to diversify a little bit, and put some of its eggs into the Alita: Battle Angel basket. There’s rich soil for a new franchise here, with multiple sequels and spin-offs, including a video game spin-off.”Erik Kain, Forbes

If the above links don’t work, try this one:
The Hollywood Reporter: “Emma Watts has resigned as chief of 20th Century Studios less than a year after the Disney merger closed in March 2019.
Her existing team remains in place at 20th Century and a successor is expected to be named in the coming weeks.”
“I am writing to you today to share that, after much reflection, I’ve made the difficult decision to step away from Twentieth Century,” Watts said in a note sent to staff Thursday morning.
“Over the past many months, it has been my top priority to continue to foster great filmmaking while leading this team successfully through the integration period with Disney. After reaching this point, I approached [Walt Disney Studios co-chairmen] Alan [Horn] and Alan [Bergman], realizing that it was now time for me to pursue new opportunities,” she continued.The Hollywood Reporter
It’s interesting to see what Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds has to say about her departure:
“Deadpool would never have happened without Emma Watts. And certainly wouldn’t have been as good.“
James Cameron said:
“It’s hard to imagine Fox without Emma. Her creative input and support were invaluable on Avatar, and even more so on the sequels. She deeply understands movies in her DNA — how they work, what’s wrong when it’s not working, how to fix it.“
Steven Spielberg said:
“Emma is a studio executive in title, but a filmmaker at heart. Her support and willingness to take risks is what this business has always thrived on.“
So what does this mean for Cameron and the potential for an Alita sequel at 20th Century Pictures and Disney?

It’s not about the #AlitaSequel but this Cinemablend article on Robert Rodriguez’s “Red11” still manages to give Alita: Battle Angel plenty of needed boost. Unfortunately, the title of this article has caused some confusion: some people have begun saying that the Alita sequel will be streamed because they didn’t actually read the article. This needs to be made clear so that people will stop running with misinformation.
“Of course, when you talk about Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel follow-up, many fans are hoping that you are talking about an Alita sequel.
There is no word on a sequel yet, but producer Jon Landau suggests that the Alita Army keep letting Disney know how bad we want to see Alita 2 and maybe one day it will happen.”Cinemablend
“Red 11” and “The Robert Rodriguez Film School” will stream on Tubi this summer in North America.
