ALIEN: COVENANT Is Rumored to Feature Two Xenomorph-Type Monsters
Earlier today we learned that Ridley Scott's upcoming Prometheus sequel will now be called Alien: Covenant. We now have some additional information regarding the film that comes from Scified. The site claims to have learned that the new sequel will feature two Xenomorph-type monsters, and also teases some story elements of the movie.
Both of these alien creatures will have similarities to the classic Xenomorph, and their source offers potential details for one of the aliens but didn't have much intel on the other. If you don't want to know any story details then don't read any further because there are possible SPOILERS ahead. Here's what their source gave them:
“The movie will have 2 Monsters, one is new and both are different yet similar to the Xeno DNA. The NEW Monster is a New Event, so it’s nothing created before the Events of the end of the First movie.... it's created by an event in the movie... and this New Monster is going to be based off of the Original Concept that Alien drew influence from, and this idea is something they had planned with Spaights’ Ultramorph and so Gigers Necomonicon 4 is the starting point. This Monster will be transparent like a Jelly Fish to a degree.... and it’s hinted that David plays a part in its creation.
"The movie won’t be going the route of an Alien movie, just we will see more clues and things that we can relate and make connection to the Xeno DNA and Bio-Mechanics of the Engineers. The movie will loosely touch up on themes that can connect to the Prometheus Mythos and the Bible but more in respect to the Paradise Lost version of events but again loosely.
"They won’t be going a full blown Ancient Aliens in detail on us, just we can make subtle links to themes, such as Rebellion, Order of Creation (that has multiple layers that does not start with the Engineers and does not end with David). Stealing of Forbiden Knowledge and Fire and how playing God and going against God always has dire consequences.”
I do love that these new creatures will be inspired by the original concept art that Giger created for the first film. This next movie will be the second film of a trilogy that Scott is planning that will lead into the first Alien film. I'm curious to see how this story arc actually plays out. Hopefully it's something Alien fans will love and embrace, unlike Prometheus. Alien: Covenant will be released on May 30th, 2017.
