We’re still 72 days away from the US release of Ridley Scott’s Alien-prequel/Prometheus-sequel, Alien: Covenant, but excitement surrounding the production is still furious. Fueled by recent trailers, images, and even a 5-minute “Prologue”, fans of horror and sci-fi have been hypothesizing non-stop about what we can expect on May 19th.
Fan site Alien-Covenant.com is a treasure trove of information (and spoilers) about the upcoming film. They claim to have a “source” close to the production who occasionally drops the kind of specific plot details you won’t read about anywhere else, and one of their most recent “rumors” will be especially interesting to those fascinated by the new breed we’ll be meeting on The Engineer’s homeworld: The Neomorph.

Alien-Covenant.com is reporting that Alien: Covenant will include a scene where a Xenomorph (the lineage we’ve come to love and fear from Alien and Aliens) will battle one of these newbie Neomorphs. If true, it promises to be an epic confrontation!
Alien: Covenant may very well feature a battle between two Alien species, the iconic Xenomorph and the new, spore-spawn Neomorph!
We have been informed of a potential scene in Alien: Covenant, one that takes place roughly 3/4 way into the film. It involves Daniels and Walter attempting to escape the surface of Paradise – the planet the USCS Covenant is diverted to upon discovering a signal left by a Weyland android – David.
The exciting thing about this reveal (if it turns out to be true) is that it implies a multi-species, balls-to-the-wall battle royale for survival.
You can check out the most recent trailer for Alien: Covenant, along with a synopsis and poster, below.
Official Synopsis: Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, members (Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup) of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think to be an uncharted paradise. While there, they meet David (Michael Fassbender), the synthetic survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. The mysterious world soon turns dark and dangerous when a hostile alien life-form forces the crew into a deadly fight for survival.
