Ridley Scott Teases Noomi Rapace’s Return In ‘Alien: Covenant’

Posted Monday, March 20th, 2017 05:00 pm GMT -4 by



When filming was beginning for ‘Alien: Covenant‘ it initially sounded as if Noomi Rapace wouldn’t be back after ‘Prometheus’ and now not only is she, but director Ridley Scott is teasing a bit about her return. However, it seems more tied to David than her having a significant role in her own right. She may have been the centerpiece of ‘Prometheus, ‘ but Elizabeth Shaw does not have the same importance here.

It should be noted that this could be a spoiler so you may want to look the other way if you want to go into things fully surprised.


Here is what Ridley had to say about Rapace showing up in ‘Alien: Covenant’ though I do have to say that you shouldn’t be getting your hopes up that she’ll have a large part in the film:

“Yes, in a way. Not fully, but in a way. She was integral to what David carried out later.”

That has me a bit worried. Specifically the “not fully” portion of that comment. Will we only be seeing parts of her in the film as in preserved body parts? I’m starting to suspect that David will have either offed her in the upcoming film which will take place between ‘Prometheus’ and ‘Alien: Covenant’ or that she wouldn’t have survived it and he froze her remains. Or, perhaps he is using her for growing Xenomorphs.

It’s not like anyone really trusted David after we saw his actions in ‘Prometheus’ so I suspect foul play.

Are you looking forward to ‘Alien: Covenant’? Do you think we’ll see Rapace among the living int he film? Share your thoughts below!


Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.

‘Alien: Covenant’ stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, and Benjamin Rigby and opens in theaters on May 19th, 2017

    She may appear on screen recordings would be my guess.

    • I was thinking that as well but I suspect we’re going to see her pop up in some way that ends up being just slightly more gruesome. We’ll find out in 2 months! ;)

    For everything I’ve read and gathered about “Covenant”, Naomi Rapace is not at all significant or is going to play a bit role maybe as a flashback. What I do suspect is that Scott is going to bring her back as a central character as the movie that will take place between “Prometheus” and “Covenant”. We still need to know what happened to her and David after they left LV-223 headed to the “Engineers” homeworld. Obviously they got there since that is part of “Covenant”, but what happened to her. That gets answered in the movie that is yet to come.
