New Poster For Alien: Covenant Asks: What Will End Mankind?

Aside from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, May will also see the release of Ridley Scott's follow-up to Prometheus, Alien: Covenant. Though we know the movie has Xenomorphs, the new poster teases another character that could possibly be the film's villan.

The new poster has a picture of both Michael Fassbender's David (or Walter) and a Xenomorph with the caption: "What will be the end of mankind?" Seeing as the Xenomorphs are just mindless hunters, I'm interested to see what motivates the androids to go against the humans.

People who saw Prometheus will remember that David was the entire reason that some crew members died; he was too curious as to what would happen when he experimented with the alien samples. No doubt we may be seeing the same thing happen with Walter.

Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the ‘synthetic' David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Alien: Covenant hits theaters May 19.
