Alien: Covenant - Watch What Happened To Dr Shaw In New Prologue

Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair...

Alien Covenant Prologue

When Alien: Covenant was announced initially and it was revealed that Noomi Rapace's Dr Elizabeth Shaw wasn't set to return, the question of her fate became a pretty pertinent one. Even after she was belatedly unveiled as a part of the sequel/prequel, we were told not to expect a major role, which immediately sparked fears that we were going to see another Newt-Gate mimicking the devastating start of Alien 3.

Well, it turns out we need not wait any longer for answers, because Fox have just released a new prologue video for Covenant, to celebrate Alien Day.

Here's the description it landed with...

The Crossing, an official prologue short to Alien: Covenant, reveals what happened to crew members Dr. Elizabeth Shaw and the synthetic David after the events of Prometheus. Set aboard an abandoned Engineer vessel, Dr. Shaw repairs David as they continue their search for humanity’s creators.

Like the footage we've seen of Covenant already, it looks great, and at least she's not just turning up dead like Michael Shannon in Batman v Superman...

Alien Covenant is set for release on May 19th.
