Things are heating up! 20th Century Fox continue to tease us with behind-the-scenes images from the production of Alien: Covenant and today, they dropped a bombshell on us! Mere moments ago, the official Alien Twitter page shared a new image of an Alien hand being constructed!
As you can see below, the hand is very Xenomorph-like, but the finger digits seem more proportional to that of a Human being (a very large Human being). This also tells us Alien: Covenant will utilize practical effects and not completely rely on CGI.
What do you think of this new image? Do you think it is of a Xenomorph hand, the Adult Deacon's hand, a completely new Alien creature or the hand of a Human "transforming" into something else?! Leave your best guess in the comments section below!

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 see what appears to be 2 digits connected together where a human's small ("pinky") finger would be. If the hand behind the one being worked on is the same, that is. So, 6 digits total if you count the 2 together.
This hand looks different than the Deacon or Xeno's. Then again, is it possible it's a mutation or just a point in the process? Or, is it simply people who are working on production forgot exactly how the Deacon and Xeno's hands were?
Hmm It seems to be a xenomporph hand! It actually looks a little bit different from any of the Aliens we have seen, but that just means they wanted to change the design of something a little bit or it is something new!
David007: Imagine if you walk in a corridor and are not aware that something is there, then you get these hands on your shoulders while you have you face away from it. An alien voice shouts something like "Hello!". How would someone react then? Maybe that is a bizarre scene from a comedy based on the Alien movies? LOL!
Dark Nebula: The hands look like they are closer to the Deacon than to the other two so maybe we will see the another Deacon in this movie (if not the same if they will re-visit LV-223)? In my opinion they should probably let LV-223 be and move on but if they feel like they need to re-visit it they should just have a short scene from there.
I dont think its the Deacon, i also dont think we would be touching upon anything from LV-223 apart from maybe vague connections or flashbacks... i dont think we would be going back to any point post Prometheus.
It kind of looks like the Ultramorph but the Ultramorph has 5 digits.
There is this one though..
This one appears to have 6 digits but its a rough sketch as far as hands go, and it looks more like a Xenos hand as in it appears to have two middle pairs of fingers plus two on the end for 6 digits.
The Alien Covenant image seems to be 4 fingers and what would appear to be a double digit thumb.
Maybe they are trying to make a fresher take on Gigers Concept work?
Or it could be Pumpkin head lol (which to be fair looks like a Xeno/Human Hybrid anyway)
But yes it looks different to others we have seen, we had the AVP and Alien R Xenos whos hands looked similar to each others (4 Digits), and Aliens Xeno had more feminine hands and was like as if the 4 digit idea was evolved to have 2 center digits split into two more (i know Alien Xeno was first lol ).
But the Covenant one looks a slightly different take, where is the Thumb Digit thats sort of semi split into two..
It also does have a Species Sil/Eve look to it.... so it would be interesting to see the full Alien and indeed its Origin and are we right to assume its a Xenomorph at this point?
I think it would be more interesting to introduce something a little different and it can still give clues to the 1979 Alien but dont forget Alien Covenant will get a sequel and so maybe the traditional Alien is shown then?
Ahh... we could sit here speculating for an eternity and never know squat. Could just be a xeno, could be a deacon, or could be something slightly different or a mix of the two!! I'm just f#ckin' psyched that it's a f#ckin' creature hand in a new Ridley Scott Alien film!! :D :D :D
It looks interesting, as far as LV-223 I don't really think that it is necessary to re-visit it. To me that planet is a thing in the past but if they really need to have it or some sequence then I hope that it will be short..
