Meet Walter, Michael Fassbender’s android from Alien: Covenant

March 11th, 2017 by Marc Comments

We know that Michael Fassbender is back for Alien: Covenant and we were wondering if he was David again, the android we met in Prometheus.

And, through a clever bit of marketing, it seems that no, he’s not David… he’s Walter.

Who’s Walter? Well, read and watch on below and fired out:

After the resounding success of the David 8 series, Weyland-Yutani Corp are pleased to present Walter.

From the launch video released today you can see that the look of the new synthetic remains in tone with previous editions, yet vast improvements have been implemented across its processing core. Higher levels of human interaction, vast array of skills and knowledge, deeper understanding of human empathy and personality levels that will make you come to question if he isn’t, in fact, human.


Alien: Covenant is released in UK cinemas and IMAX May 12.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
