Ridley Scott Reveals Which Aliens Will Appear in Alien: Covenant
While Ridley Scott's Prometheus divided the science fiction community, we're still rather excited about the prospect of the director returning for another shot at the franchise. Other than ditching the Prometheus tag and changing the title to Alien: Covenant, details on Scott's next project have been somewhat thin on the ground. We know that Prometheus survivors Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender will return, and we know that Scott has two further Alien prequels planned after this. But what can we expect from Covenant? Well, Scott recently spoke to The Wrap, and revealed a few major details about the movie's plot would take our intrepid explorers.

Opening quote
They're going to go to the planet where the engineers came from, and come across the evolving creature that they had made. Why did they make it? Why would they make such a terrifying beast? It felt bio-mechanoid, it felt like a weapon. And so the movie will explain that, and reintroduce the alien back into it.
Closing quote

So, we'll finally get some answers as to why the Engineers unleashed this creation upon the galaxy. But what else could happen when they reach the Engineer homeworld? Many fans will be curious to know which evolution of the alien Xenomorph we'll get to see in Covenant, and those fans will be delighted to know that Scott is planning on throwing everything including the proverbial kitchen sink at the franchise's next outing.

Opening quote
We'll have them all: egg, face-hugger, chest-burster, then the big boy.
Closing quote

Oh yes. We can now officially start counting down to the first appearance of a fully grown Xenomorph in more than a decade.

Alien: Covenant is slated for a October 6th 2017 release
