20th Century Fox shared, but promptly removed a host of new viral images for Alien: Covenant . These images feature X-Ray scans of the various characters from the film. What's most fascinating however, is that each X-Ray features a different Alien organism embedded in the chests of these characters. Some resemble more so, the iconic Xenomorph fetus, while others look even more alien and less like the chest-bursting organisms we're used to seeing.
What does it mean? It's not far fetched to assume that these posters represent David's tampering and attempts at creating the perfect organism. The evidence set forth by the cut-scenes showing his workshop on Paradise suggest he has been splicing various organisms with the Black Goo in an attempt to create a perfected being. The crew of the Covenant are clearly his guinea pigs, which is why he saves them from the Neomorph attack earlier on in the film. These images suggest to us that David will infect each one of the crew with a unique Alien - each producing a varied resulting organism. This also coincides with the recent theatrical poster, which featured a number of different looking Alien organisms.
What do you think these images represent? Could our theory of it representing David's numerous Alien variation testing be true? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section, or in the pre-existing forum topic here!

The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.

I think these are just Marketing and in no way reflect who gets infected, and its pretty much obvious that everyone but Daniels and Tennessee get killed... i have even worked out when and how for each Character lol
I can only think they have been taken down as per David007 said and that many fans started to moan about them spoiling stuff, when actually i dont see these as spoiling anything.
Unless Daniels and Tennessee get infected but both their infections appear different.
And i doubt those who did these images would have been allowed to even design such things if indeed Daniels and Tennessee are both infected.
This marketing set of images are to just show many various Organisms that can be a result of the Black Goo and Davids experiments is all. We may not be able to Guarantee if all or any of these are shown in the movie at all.
I think Fox is messing with us. They know we are nuts and purposely put these up to make up crazy. The Daniels one looks the most like a Xenomorph to me, but I think that was done on purpose. Since we know she fights the classic but pre biomechanical Xeno at some point she can't have one in her unless it's all a massive mind game that Fox purposely released to throw us off. Could it be possible that the entire crew are all infected during the entire movie but don't know? I don't think so, but I'm betting that all of them die except Daniels and Tennessee. But he's gonna get it at the end and I think she's also gonna die or become infected before the credits roll, or Scott will do the same thing he did with the Decon reveal. We'll think Daniels made it but at the very end a classic biomechanical Xenomorph will burst out of her chest.
I think between now and May 11th, when the film opens in England, we are going to see some different marketing approaches happen with this film. I have yet to see the Weyland Industries site updated yet. I'm sure that it will come online come the end of April or early May. There is more marketing planned as they are pinned against Gaurdians of the Galaxy if I'm not mistaken on May 5th, which is before Alien but still...they want Alien to have a good start.
If Ridley "killed" Shaw, why cant he kill Daniels? Just a simple analogy. They will make more alien movies, and it aint gonna be about a persona goin through some rough **** like Ripley did. Even in 1979 Alien, first plan was to actually kill Ripley at the end. These movies (that Ridley shoots), are all about the message he tries to convey to us, about the "alien" and what it really is. Why is it so damn hostile? And why do we need so many movies to get the whole picture? Money? No way man. We are in for a ride. Ridley actually spilled the beans but the public is like in some trance.
There was the hints and teases about a Ripley connection to Daniels, that had been confirmed as not true... when actually it is true as far as a Story Arc. In that Daniels has to evolve and change due to the Horrific Ordeal she faces in Alien Covenant pretty much like how Ripley mainly did in Aliens.
I cant seem to think Ridley Scott will kill off Daniels, if he is also going to be killing off Shaw too.
However i dont like the idea and cant see Daniels being needed more than one more Movie after this one. Seems Ridley Scott planned 2-3 movies after Prometheus and then confirmed Alien Covenant is part of a New Trilogy Set before Alien and after Prometheus... which Alien Awakening is the next part that actually looks like it may be set prior to Alien Covenant.
So i think Daniels will appear in another movie, and i think Shaw will also appear in another movie, but both not together as far as Time-Line of Events.
