Androids are a vital part of the Alien movies, and the latest addition to the franchise's roster of robots is Walter. The character will feature in the upcoming Alien: Covenant, played by Michael Fassbender. He is the subject of a new promotional video--check it out below:

Walter is from the same line of androids as Prometheus's David, also played by Fassbender. In an interview last year, the actor revealed that David would make an appearance in Alien: Covenant too.

Alien: Covenant is directed by Ridley Scott, who helmed the original 1979 Alien, as well as Prometheus. Scott recently revealed that the movie's sequel had already been written and he hoped to start shooting it soon. "You've got to assume, to a certain extent, success [for Alien: Covenant], and from that you'd better be ready," he said." You don't want a two-year gap. So I'll be ready to go again next year."

Alien: Covenant stars also Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Demian Bichir, and Danny McBride. It hits theaters on May 19 in the US and May 12 in the UK. Check out the latest trailer here.
