According to ComicBook.com on Thursday, during an interview for "X-Men: Days of Future Past", Michael Fassbender was asked if he would like to do a "Prometheus" sequel with Ridley Scott. He did say he would like to do it, but James McAvoy chimed in and asked if there is going to be a "Prometheus 2" after all. Fassbender gave a resounding "yes", but he just doesn't know when.
For those unfamiliar with the franchise, these series of films take place in the events prior to the very first "Alien" movie which starred Sigourney Weaver and Tom Skerritt. For those who have been around back in the 70s some may have recalled the iconic "space jockey" that the original cast of characters have discovered in the first "Alien" film. This creature is not to be confused by another alien planet that the cast of characters journeyed to in the "Prometheus" film. Apparently in the prequel, these humanoid-like creatures journeyed to Earth thousands of years ago to recombine a DNA process to form our own human race.
Later in 2089, archaeologists Elizabeth Shaw and Charlie Holloway come across remnants of star maps of yet to be discovered alien races and figure the message to be interpreted as an invitation to their own race's connection. Later, Peter Weyland of Weyland Industries funds a deep space research foundation to travel towards the region of the universe which suggests the maps originating location.
Fassbender plays David, a new piece of artificial intelligence capable of doing most things that some humans would find rather "distressing". For those who recall's Weaver's character Ripley, she initially had an elaboration of such things due to a bad experience, but was assured in time that the new models weren't as problematic. Considering David's behavior when taking on orders that were questionable, it would stand to reason why Ripley was reluctant of Bishop, played by Lance Henriksen.
Perhaps in this next installment, it can be discovered what humanities origins truly are.
