In a recent interview with Metro New York (I’d link to it, but the site appears to be down), Michael Fassbender has gone on record saying that Ridley Scott’s return to sci-fi Prometheus would not be a prequel to the much loved Alien series he helped create. Fassbender was quoted as saying “The thing is, it’s not a prequel. It definitely is separate. It is a separate story, but there are threads that connect the stories.” So it’s, uh…its own thing? Still?
