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?).

Fassbender's confirmation came during an interview with Collider while promoting X-Men: Days of Future Past:

Regarding the specific exchange on Prometheus 2, Steve asked Fassbender if he was looking forward to working with Scott on sequel, and he replied, "For sure. I love Ridley. He's a master filmmaker," at which point James McAvoy, who was also part of the interview, turned to Fassbender and asked, "Are you doing a sequel?"

Fassbender turned to his X-Men co-star and replied, "Yeah, but when I don't know."

Even with it's flaws, which were not insignificant, I still really enjoyed watching this movie.

It's biggest flaw to me was that it felt incomplete; hopefully the rest of the story is told. That it is not being told by Lindelof gives me hope.

Fassbender knocked it out of the park with his portrayal of David. I'm looking forward to seeing him again (probably as another David!).
