Michael Fassbender Drops Some Wild ‘Alien: Covenant’ Details

In a new interview with Irish Times, Michael Fassbender recently let us know just how big his role will be in Alien: Covenant. And the info he gives us is pretty fascinating.


Fassbender said in the interview that not only will he play David, the android from Prometheus, but Walter, a newer version of David. Huh?

“I am allowed to say I am playing two robots – Walter and David. I think what’s great about it is that Ridley has gone back to the original DNA of Alien, the horror element of that. But is also has the scope and the scale of Prometheus. Ridley has cut it already. He is a machine. He is an incredible human being and he was in such good form. He is such an imaginative and mischievous figure.”


That sounds pretty crazy, and AVP Galaxy also says that Walter is not going to be a fan of David in the story. Because somehow they know a ton of stuff about this movie, and I believe them. They have a ton of details about this new development.

So not only do we get Fassbender back in the Prometheus sequel, we get TWO Fassbenders! Count me in.

Alien: Covenant comes out August 4 next year.
