Noomi Rapace is definitely not back for Alien: Covenant

02.01.2016

You won't be seeing Dr. Elizabeth Shaw's face around the ALIEN franchise anymore.

After rumors had been swirling about whether Noomi Rapace would return to a PROMETHEUS sequel, now officially titled ALIEN: COVENANT, Ridley Scott was asked point blank recently if she'd be back, to which he simply replied "No," following that up with "We're still casting the main roles."

Scott has previously stated that the PROMETHEUS follow-up would pick up where he left that overall story thread, while bridging the gap to the larger ALIEN mythology, which makes the absence of the lone human survivor from the previous film all the more curious. We do know that Michael Fassbender's David will be back, so why not Rapace? Could her mysterious disappearance be used to explain the nefarious standing of the Engineers' creators and wherever they are found by a new crew a few years in the future from when PROMETHEUS ended? Your guess is as good as mine, but one thing is for sure - Rapace won't be around to see it for herself.

ALIEN: COVENANT lands in theaters, sans Noomi Rapace, on October 6, 2017.

She's a good actress, but that character sucked, so I'm rejoicing with this news.

This is disappointing. I find myself caring less and less about this film, sadly.

Kind of bummed she won't be returning since she played such a major part in Prometheus.

But none the less, very excited to jump back into this Prometheus/Alien hybrid universe.

It's getting to be a tradition in this franchise that a character that survives one film gets killed off between the next one. Feels kind of lame to build up the end of Prometheus with her going off to make a dsicovery, only to have it never happen.

Wasn't a fan.

This is good news. I wasn't a fan of Noomi's "Shaw" character. I have more of an appreciation of the Ripley character and her back-story.
For the record: I thought Prometheus was a very well-thought out movie, with some minor flaws.

No Shaw, no problem...

Isn't it supposed to be set on the Engineer home planet hundreds of years after the events of Prometheus, where the sole inhabitant is the robot David and Xenomorphs? Shaw would have been long dead by then anyway.

I read on another site that it takes place 10 years after Prometheus.
