We get some news and potential rumors and updates regarding Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant film that is due out next Summer.

It's reported that Michael Fassbender, who returns as the android David, referred to the xenomorph in Alien: Covenant as a Neomorph. Reportedly, the Neomorph is connected to the Alien in the first 1979 Alien movie.

The Aliens and Predator fan site AvPGalaxy states the Neomorph in Alien: Covenant is a brand new variation of the Alien encountered in the 1979 film. It is noted the production crew apparently referred to the new Alien as a Neomorph, which may not be the final name used in the release of Alien: Covenant, but just for production purposes.

Further rumors from the site include that the Neomorphs:

• Are the result of the local ecosystem having mutated by the accelerant/black goo.

• Pods grow on trees and the ground, and they release a spore when disturbed.

• The spores infect several members of the Covenant crew by entering their bodies through the ears and nostrils.

• The Neomorphs then grow inside the infected host.

• A Neomorph bursts through the back of one of the infected crew and is called a "backbuster."

• Another Neomorph busts out of an infected crew member's throat. 

• The Neomorphs are white/translucent in coloration, with a pointed head and two dorsal spines.

• The Neomorphs move on all fours when born, but as they reach adulthood walk on their back legs, are animal-like in behavior, have fang-like teeth and tails.

Assuming the Neomorph rumor is legit, we see that the Neomorphs apparently evolve/mutate from vegetation and lay spores, while the Aliens we are all familiar with lay eggs and evolve/mutate from animals/humans. It's possible when the Neomorph lays its spore inside a human, the next version is the Alien which lays eggs and becomes the darker version.

"Alien: Covenant" has an August 4, 2017 starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Noomi Rapace, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz and Callie Hernandez.

Synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
