One of the best parts of the ‘Alien’ franchise are the Xenomorphs. We have been following the development of Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien: Covenant’ closely. Now, we know one of the variant creatures we will see in ‘Covenant’, thanks to one of its stars, Michael Fassbender.




While speaking to BBC Radio 2, Fassbender mentioned that one of the new breeds of Xeno we will witness in ‘Covenant’ is being referred to as as a Neomorph.

More details on the Neomorph were obtained by AvP Galaxy.  The Neomorph were created by an infestation of a type of black goo on their planet that allowed the ecosystem to mutate.  The creatures begin their lives in pods growing on trees, which infect their hosts via their ears and bursts out through their victims’ backs, a twist on the classic Facehuggers. Unlike the classic Xenomorphs, the Neomorphs are white. They are based on an unused concept from ‘Prometheus’ (art below).




Michael Fassbender co-stars alongside Noomi Repace, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Billy Crudup, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, Jussie Smollett, Damián Birchir and Amy Seimetz.

‘Alien: Covenant’ is set to arrive in theaters nationwide on August 4th, 2017. Take a look at the first images to surface from ‘Covenant’ (here).
