Last week, director Ridley Scott let it slip that the sequel to Prometheus was now going to be called Alien: Covenant. 20th Century Fox made that official Monday morning with a new logo and, most curiously, a very confusing plot synopsis.
What do you do when you’re working on a sequel to a movie that was visually stunning but made heads explode to think about? You hire someone to rewrite it who has just finished doing that. Brace yourselves for John Logan’s version of Alien: Paradise Lost.

Somehow, the news that Ridley Scott wants to make three Prometheus sequels is not the most ridiculous Prometheus news this week.

Plus Gotham teases a Riddler/Penguin teamup, a familiar face returns to Daredevil, and Skull Island might become the opening salvo in a Kong/Godzilla trilogy. Spoilers Now!
It might be a while before Bucky Barnes becomes Captain America in the movies. Rachel McAdams is definitely in Doctor Strange. Plus, set footage from Toho’s new Godzilla film, another look at Merida in Once Upon A Time, and a new clip from Fear The Walking Dead. Spoilers!
Of the umpteen or so upcoming movies Ridley Scott has said he’s directing, it turns out that Prometheus 2 is at the top of the list.

While the first Prometheus definitely opened the door to a sequel, very few walked out actually thinking it was going to happen. The 2012 film was a middling financial and critical success so though there was talk of a follow-up, it seemed likely the project would fade away and die. It has now risen from the dead.
While Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender's severed head journey through the cosmos, Sir Ridley Scott is hard at work at chronicling their adventures in his script for Prometheus 2. And now he's dropped a fascinating bombshell about the movie: It's going to have a new type of alien we've never seen before.
When Noomi Rapace and the severed head of Michael Fassbeder resume their interstellar adventures in Prometheus 2, they can take comfort in the fact that they won't be bothered by any more xenomorphs.

Jeremy Renner says there's been "rumblings" of him appearing in Captain America 3. Ridley Scott doesn't know when Prometheus 2 will get made, but he does have scripts for that, Blade Runner 2, and The Martian. Arrow begins filming Felicity's story.

Ridley Scott confirmed months ago that the script to Prometheus 2 was in the bag. Filming is slated to begin this fall, with a projected release date of March 2016. Now, in unsurprising but auspicious news, Michael Fassbender has confirmed he's "doing a sequel," presumable reprising his role as David (Davids?).
Prometheus 2 is (probably) arriving on March 4th, 2016. At the moment, it's slotted for "an unnamed Ridley Scott project," but since Scott recently confirmed the Prometheus 2 script is finished, it's a likely guess. Are you ready for the continuing adventures of Space Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender's severed head?
In the next four years, Ridley Scott's looking to make Prometheus 2, Forever War, Exodus, and Blade Runner 2. There's also a complete cast for the BBC's Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. Plus, Summer Glau previews her character on Arrow. Spoilers now!
