It’s been a while since we’ve had much news from the set of Alien Covenant, but we are in for a big treat today. There’s a new rumor circulating around the net that the Xenomorphs we know and love might actually be at least partially a result of biological experimentation by Michael Fassbender’s David character. If these photos are any indication of that being true, we might be seeing some of her early experiments that led to the now iconic Giger creations. Among the photos are a bigger facehugger, what looks like some kind of chestbuster, and a creature being referred to as a Neomorph that looks like a deformed version of the classic Xenomorphs.
“Photos removed because lawyers are dickheads.”
“Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the ‘synthetic’ David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.”
Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Demien Bichir and Danny McBride, and is set to hit theaters on August 4, 2017.
