Prometheus: Fire And Stone — Five Things You Need To Know About The Comic Sequel
The Events of Prometheus Were Covered up by the Company
This shouldn’t be too surprising given the involvement of the notoriously shady Weyand-Yutani Corporation, but the harrowing fate of the original Prometheus expedition to LV-223 are not public knowledge. For instance, Peter Weyland (played in the film by Guy Pearce) is widely thought to have died and been buried on Earth — as opposed to being bludgeoned to death by a pissed-off engineer. The crew of this new voyage to LV-223 clearly knows nothing about the crazy events of Prometheus, assuming their job is as mundane as advertised: a salvage mission that’s being accompanied by a documentary crew covering the day-to-day experience of a deep-space mission. Again, this leaves plenty of room for Prometheus 2 to go wherever it needs to, and presumably whatever happens to Shaw and David, the Weyland-Yutani corporation either doesn’t know about it or is keeping a lid on that as well.
