Unfortunately, I think that's where he's going. I really hope he doesn't. The whole lure of the Jockey and the Aliens has taken a hit with Prometheus and Covenant, I'm not sure I can stomach David being in the pressure suit.
how could you see them explaining the size of the space jockey if david does indeed become him?
and then, ugh, time travel? ha, how about petrification instead like he does in the novel with the eggs he found?

This is the same illogical nonsense he came up with during 'Prometheus' (except with less Jesus).

Exactly how were we "killing the planet" two thousand years ago?

And how the f**k would destroying the entire planet's ecosystem in such a catastrophic way be better?

Humans were no more "killing themselves" than any other species (probably a good deal less so, if anything, since communities of people realised they needed to band together to survive harsh times, like bad weather). I don't know what he means by declaring we couldn't "settle down", either, because we had huge empires existing and most tribes had to settle down and farm if they wanted to survive.

Really, Scott? If someone's acting immaturely, the logical thing to do is to f**k the planet up beyond all recognition? That, right there, is a case of species acting both immaturely and irresponsibly.

Whenever he says this stuff, I always think of this guy...

I'm none to pleased with either of those reasons. They're pretty weak.
I'd rather the engineers not care about us, not even know of our existence much like the case seemed to be in Alien. If they had to know about us and we had to keep the religion aspect of it then I'd rather the Engineers viewed us as inferior/not worthy from a religious stand point. Not this "They're killing the planet, they gotta go" nonsense.

I wish Ridley would just stop.

Darn you, Roman Empire! Don't you see you're destroying the planet?!

Somehow...

Apparently...

This is like the US discovering there's some random guy living in New Zealand, judging him to be a psychopath and deciding the only course of action must be to launch the whole of its nuclear arsenal to destroy the entire planet's surface area.

He really expanded upon the alien universe and gave it all a deeper meaning, that's for sure. I like it, feels fresh but in the end it becomes the same "kill or get killed, blow it out the airlock" type of alien movie. Also, Covenant feels very tied to Blade Runner with the whole AI aspect of it.

Q
So how come Predators used eggs exactly the same like the ones created by David, in thousands of years before modern civilizations on Earth?  Did David do the time travel ? because i am confused to be honest

The Alien vs. Predator films aren't canon as far as Scott is concerned.

Im getting a bit tired of Scotts extravagant BS theories when he hasnt been able to make a rudimentally coherent film in 15 years.

Lately its accumulating in a way where i actually start to think hes slowly crossing into dementia territory (i mean no offense hes what 80?).
