Has Ridley Scott changed the title for his Prometheus sequel from Alien: Paradise Lost to Alien: Covenant?

Has Ridley Scott changed the title for his Prometheus sequel from Alien: Paradise Lost to Alien: Covenant?

The title for Ridley Scott's Prometheus sequel is once again in question, following a statement made by director Ridley Scott at the recent AFI Film Festival, where he referred to Prometheus 2 not as the previously announced Alien: Paradise Lost, but as Alien: Covenant. Is this the new title for Prometheus 2? Or did Ridley Scott mistakingly just let the title for Neill Blomkamp's postponed Alien 5 slip? We're unsure, but until an official announcement is made, we're going to assume Prometheus 2 is still going to be called Alien: Paradise Lost.

Here's Ridley's official quote, as reported by Indie Wire (via AvPG) who were in attendance during the discussion:

“I was going to be doing what will be called ‘Alien: Covenant,’ which starts shooting next February, and we were struggling then with the screenplay there and then there was a phone call, somebody saying, ‘Listen, we’ve got this thing which is completely written called ‘Martian,’ and I said, ‘Huh.’ And I sped read it in an hour and by mid-afternoon, I talked to Fox and said, ‘I need to talk to ‘Drew [Goddard]…’”

It's possible that the title for the film has changed following John Logan's revisions of the script. However, until we hear more concrete information, the title will remain as Alien: Paradise Lost. 

So, which title do you prefer? Alien: Covenant or Alien: Paradise Lost? Share your opinions in the comments section below!

I don't really dislike Covenant, but Alien: Paradise Lost is the better of the two for me! It makes me wonder though...what meaningful differences may have come about during the last rewrite/touch up?

Uhmmm....ALIEN COVENANT, interesting.  covenant n. a formal agreement, a contract.

Can't help but think about the mural with the engineer and reptillian/alien? creature.  An alliance with the devil or god?

I prefer the title Alien:Paradise lost,but the title Alien:Covenant sounds really suspicious to me.God knows what Ridley and Logan are planning to do with the movie.
