Marvel and (to a degree) DC have had a number of lucrative superhero movies hit cinemas over the years. In a recent interview with Digital Spy, the ‘Alien’ director didn’t hold back when it came to expressing his disdain for superhero films and how sees some of his past films have been tackled in comicbook-y way. Scott revealed that he had actually been offered the chance to direct several superhero and comicbook stories but turned them down without hesitation.
A revealing new image has emerged from the set of ‘Alien: Covenant’ which depicts Katherine Waterston in her role as Daniels – the new female lead. Appearing on the official Alien Facebook page, the behind-the-scenes image gives us a glimpse of Ridley Scott’s monitor on the set of ‘Alien: Covenant’… and it looks as though things have gone sideways already for the ill-fated crew.
Just when Sir Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien: Covenant’ has been gathering momentum and dominating the ‘Alien’ franchise headlines, Michael Biehn’s only gone and revealed some juicy details on the plot for ‘Alien 5′. Biehn, the actor who played Corporal Hicks in James Cameron’s ‘Aliens’, had a lot to say regarding ‘Alien 5′ (as per its working title), declaring it was still very much happening. Not only does this, as he previously specified, ignore ‘Alien 3′ and ‘Alien: Resurrection’, but it plays out a very different timeline whereby both Hicks and Newt survive the crash-landing in David Fincher’s ‘Alien 3′.
