Noomi Rapace believed Elizabeth Shaw might have turned to the dark side1 Upvotes42 RepliesUpvoteAdd A Reply
In the an undated press interview, a blond Noomi Rapace expresses her own theory on how the character of Elizabeth Shaw might have evolved in a sequel to Prometheus.
I think the Revenge of the Sith analogy may speak volumes

She lost everything, got back to trusting David again, he convinced her to join him over in the Dark side, then he screwed her over anyway?
Its really sad what happen to that lady. Homo robot deserve painfull and slow death.
Tdby, great comments. I feel smarter already. I'm glad we're able to identify which robots are homo and which are "normal". Thanks again for helping us understand more about the movie!
Tdby You have been using the word "homo" on a couple different threads and it seems some find it derogatory. Please clarify what you mean when using the word "homo".
Tdby The beauty of being a "homo" robot is that if the robot wishes to be "straight" you just have to alter its programming slightly. Unfortunately for you, Tdby, the homo dna information that you have in you, even if it was dormant (because we all share the same dna pool), cannot be erased as easily, at least not in the world of today.
I would add that David's character is likely to encourage derogatory remarks from those inclined to do so. At this respect, the New Yorker's critic Richard Brody wrote "David, the older model of android, is soon revealed to be not a shipwrecked victim but a genocidal maniac rendered furious by his inability to procreate, to replicate his own kind for posterity. He’s also programmed as a high-culture showoff with a taste for nostalgic kitsch, embodying a repugnant stereotype, the high-culturally effete and seductively evil gay man". I kinda agree with that.
dk Yes, some of the things David does can be interpreted in more than one way. For instance, that famous kiss was more of a homage to Blade Runner, as it reprises the scene where Roy Batty kisses Tyrell in the same fashion, before killing him. However, David is deliberately characterized as having many of the traits commonly associated to homosexuals, like being hysterical (when Oram kills the neomorph), flamboyant (his Bravo! remark, his poetry reciting) and prone to unsolicited advances.
joylitt I like that direction- it can give an extra level of creepy/uneasiness to the character depending one one's own views.
I wouldn't be surprised if little bullies' latest trend now is to call "David" other children who they suspect are queer. Specially if the latter are best of the class.
LOL! My name is David. I remember about a month or so ago there were some heated debates on the forum about a so called Hollywood gay agenda being pushed in AC based on the prologue.
I suppose if people said I am such a David, they would be technically correct.
Excuse me but davit is homo. Its clear. Maybe he programmed to be homo sho knows? And as i see he can act with his iwn will and hawe full controll of his choices emotions etc. So being homo and evil his own choice.
Genetically speaking, that far in the future you'll be able to create children or robots with any sexual orientation you might desire!
Probably a robot would laugh in your face if you call it homo. The true robot slur is "toaster"
Tdby I am sorry, David had the balls to get out of the closet long time ago and your words cannot hurt him anymore haha. Anyway, if you are barely born and you are fed not with sports paraphernalia but with the most exquisite italian art, including sculptures of naked men, and on top of that your father is a dominant, scary figure, chances are you will be homosexual, and not by choice. Being good or evil is probably more flexible.
Hey why taking offansive? I said he is homo didnt say anything being homo is good or bad thing. Its clear his actions is feminen and maybe he just taking revenge for his homo life as hurt such nice lady.
Tdby I am trying to understand the revenge motive. Did Shaw have nicer shoes or something?
That's fine no offence taken. It's just homo is just something a teenager would say. Or even like the n word if it is not said by the right person and in the right context lol
dk haha no dk Shaw wanted to end that lavender marriage because David was just with his hobbies and that didn't pay the rent
If he is homo im going to say homo. And killing that nice ladykinda thing only homo can do. You are alone with nice lady in whole world and killing her!
If i been there i perefdr build nice hone for us and live that lady. Killing her for stupit bioweapon stuff is wery homoish and only homos can think about that in that situation.
Tdby I disagree. A narccisist/psychopath would kill for those reasons- not necessarily based on sexual orientation.
Tdby In a dystopian world, you are the person I would hire to exterminate all those damn homos who kill nice little ladies. On top of that, I would have you in charge of disposing of all the "homo" fetuses that you can find onboard the Covenant. They will be neatly labeled as "homos" for your convenience and you can safely put them, like Walter, in the Biohazard disposal bin.
No mate i cant just destroy homo fetuses. Because they are human how can i know if they going to be good person or bad. But yea i would kill that homo robot and got lady shawn for myself.
Yeah, this thread has kind of derailed a bit. Let's stop with the "homo" talk, for the sake of being respectful and to remain on topic.
As per the OP, the video sadly has been removed by the user. Do you have a backup by chance?
Interesting because Rappace is describing pretty much what it appears has happened to David.
I think she had discussed a lot with RS as far as where the Plot was Going, and i think she would have had knowledge to her Character Arc when RS was working with her on the Crossing Prologue.
I had said that Dr Shaw could be a interesting Character, she had lost everything in Prometheus the only Thing she had left was her FAITH... even knowing the Engineers created us... she asks "who created them" she also is at conflict to why any such Creators at the Top of any Creation Chain would Create Life but then want to Destroy it.
So this is what she wanted to know... and if she found out that the God of her Faith is NOTHING... and the Truth is a Horrific One and these Gods are Wicked... Then thats going to mean Shaw has NOTHING...
She has No Family, cant have Children and now her Faith is a Sham? All she has been taught about GOD and Creation is WRONG
That sure as Hell Can Mess a Person Up.... and so maybe she could be pushed to a Darker Thinking... Her Faith and Love for God in tatters is now a Hate Towards such Wicked and Evil beings.
Certainly was a Whole Dark/Sinister Plot that could Break Dr Shaw and turn her into a very different Character...
Maybe the ADF Prequel Book can delve into this for us..
