Michael Fassbender talks Alien: Covenant’s new synthetic with Coming Soon. Coming Soon spoke to Michael Fassbender whilst he was doing the press rounds for Assassin’s Creed – due out next week and suspected to be the film Alien: Covenant’s trailer will be attached to in the theatres – and took the opportunity to ask how Alien: Covenant’s new android, Walter, and David differed:
“I think Walter’s a real different kettle of fish. David was definitely a work-in-progress, somewhat of a prototype I suppose. The elements of him that were the human elements I think people found a little disturbing, so Walter’s more of a straightforward robot. Pretty logical, much more of a servant without the ego.”
Unfortunately, they don’t go into more detail with him. Michael Fassbender has only recently revealed that his second synthetic character would be named Walter and Alien vs. Predator Galaxy had some small additional details to share about Walter.
Walter is distrustful of David 8 because the older model has gone without any form of maintenance or upgrades during the ten year interval he has been in isolation between the Prometheus incident and the Covenant crew making landfall on the supposed paradise planet that Alien: Covenant takes place on.
