With the release of X-Men: First Class (which is pretty damn cool, we've seen it) arriving this week, Michael Fassbender is back in the press and this time he's at Metro being grilled about Prometheus.
The interviewer there asked the actor if Ridley Scott's film is a straight-up prequel to Alien. Fassbender responded, "Hmm, shall I cause controversy? Um, no. The thing is, itâ€™s not a prequel. It definitely is separate. It is a separate story, but there are threads that connect the stories."
There you go.
Meanwhile, Alien Prequel News got their paws on a rather uneventful set photo from London.
Scott is presently shooting the film with Noomi Rapace, Fassbender, Logan Marshall-Green, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie and Guy Pearce.
