A new leak has given us our first look at the Xenomorphs we’ll be seeing in Alien: Covenant, possibly giving some solid information on how Ridley Scott’s sequel to Prometheus is making a course correction from its predecessor and fully jumping back into the classic storyline. The movie site So Is It Any Good has posted a set of photos reportedly from the set of the film, showing props and creatures that seem to be the bridge between the monsters we’ve come to know from the series and the monster we glimpsed at the end of Prometheus:

Now as we reported earlier in the week, Michael Fassbender spoiled the name of the new beasties in an interview with BBC Radio 2, referring to them as Neomorphs. This is something that has been teased with other rumors about the monsters, with Screencrush reporting that it will all be tied to that black goo we saw in Prometheus:

According to AVP Galaxy, the new aliens reportedly spawn from black goo mutating a local ecosystem. When pods growing on trees are disturbed, they release spores, and those spores enter the crew members of Covenant through their nostrils and ears. And that’s when things turn ugly. According to the site, “The spores cause the growth of the Neomorphs inside the infected hosts […] One of the Neomorphs bursts from the back of one of the infected crew, a backburster. The other crew member’s Neomorph erupts through their throat.”
