First Alien: Covenant Image Offers Cosplayers New Options

The official Alien Facebook page offered an official image from Ridley Scott‘s upcoming prequel Alien: Covenant. While not offering a substantial look at the film, it does offer something for the discerning cosplayer: a new crew patch.

The crew patches in the Alien series have always been great. And this call back to the Nostromo‘s Ark of the Covenant style cherubim — and the Weyland-Yutani name — makes for a great future detail for anyone cosplaying as a crewmember of the Covenant in two year’s time.

Michael Fassbender returns as David with Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride and Jussie Smollett as part of the Covenant crew. The film is scheduled for an August 4th, 2017 release.
