Interview with Fassie. No idea is Covvie comes up, haven't listened to yet.

At the 0:5:42 mark.
Michael says that Scott has taken the horror elements of the first Alien film and merged it with the scale of Prometheus... nothing revealing. 8)

The full interview seems to be around the 02:24:00 mark. At about 02:25:50 Fassbender slips out a new term that I know was bandied about on Covenant - Neomorph.

Well off the bat I assumed neo means new but then again the term essentially means mutant. So... it means nothing.  :-\

Perhaps instead of the XENO term (which I am personally not a fan of) we have the Neomorph, essentially the new alien  ???

It could also be that he isn't as well versed in Alien-lore and decidedly called it a neomorph instead of xenomorph?

Nah. It was deliberate. Like I said, I know that name was used during production.

It's quite likely. When they were working on Prometheus, they called the Jockey-Burster the Ultramorph. Seems quite likely that neomorph is another new design. Literally says new in the name. lol

Well, if that's the case then I hope the new design is actually the Alien design from the Covenant clapboard:

It's keanu reeves in Alien meets the Matrix. Basically neo is face hugged and births the neomorph.  :laugh:

For some reason I can't play the interview. What way does he use the term 'neomorph'?

Neo-Morph... New Form, New Shape...

Perhaps David is going to pull an Elden? Become a Black Goo Synth?
