He wanted to remove any kind of threat towards him, while also proving himself superior by killing his creators' creators.
But the real reason is because they had to be removed from the setting so nobody goes "why haven't anyone else found them? Why haven't they shown up elsewhere?"

A bit of a risk attacking them so boldly, but maybe he knew it would work somehow

They're a divergent evolution from the engineers. Just like humans.

>>159691798
It is odd that he clearly did the bulk of his research on the alien goo after he arrived on the planet.
>>
>>159691798
The goo was designed to attack an entire planet as per the previous movie's exposition, so I'm sure David was pretty confident about it.

An even better question is why every planet they touch other than earth looks like some sandnigger hellscape. These idiots can literally create different forms of life but can't inhabit every foliage-covered planet in several galaxies? They can't grow a fucking tree? Like wtf?

The engineer planet in Covenant is completely covered in flora, though. And it had wildlife before it was wiped out by the goo.
>>
> destroy an entire civilization by killing one city.
They deserved it.
>>
so that they didn't have to answer the question from the first movie, "who created the engineers?"
>>
>>159692056
David had access to the engineer ship's logs since he decoded their language and computer interfaces. He must've known it was an engineer world without military installations.
>>
>>159690970
They don't like robots so they would have destroyed him and he wanted to experiment on that planet.
>>
What I got from the movie is that the city David dumped the goo on is another "created" race that engineers seeded.

They seem really low-tech and the way they assembled to look at the alien ship implies that they were about to worship their superiors.
>>
>>159692516
Or they were a lower caste and thought their pioneers had returned or something like that.
>>
>>159691004
No, just some other race they created.
>>
>>159692425
lol so true
>>
>>159692516
Definitely seemed like a cargo cult type situation. They are primitive and isolated and worshipped the returning ship like a god.
>>
He hates them, what they are and what they do. He has a massive chip on his shoulder that they have the power to create worlds and entire races, and by extension David himself through the creation of Earth.

He wanted to feel power over his creators, so he destroyed them.

Its explained that they decided to kill off humanity because humanity killed Jesus. Jesus was brought to the engineers world despite being human originally to learn about engineers and went back to earth with their teachings. IIRC they changed their minds after the failed bioweapon attack because humanity decided to embrace christianity
>>
>>159694445
Where is this discussed in the movie?
>>
>>159694478
The jesus going to the engineer homeworld is not in the movie, however during Prometheus a date of "2000 years ago" is mentioned which alludes to the time of Christ, not to mention that Noomi's character's crucifix is constantly shown too
>>
>>159691004
Either they devolved as a society or they were an offshoot race. Well never know for certain because this franchise crashed with no survivors

There were concepts that were tossed around that didn't make it into the final draft that every brainlet treats like the "secret true canon", not realizing that this happens all the time in both movies and literature

Curse you, Disney. I want my fucking final prequel movie.
>>
I hate that they tried to mash alien and prometheus together. They should have stayed their own separate things. The black goo being in Alien is stupid and not interesting. The xeno was far more interesting as a mystery that exists out there with no connection to humanity and certainly not a bioweapon.

Prometheus had some cool ideas. I like the idea of going to find the creator and them wanting to kill you. But the whole Jesus thing is retarded. And Ridley's infatuation with the android is too much. It's not that interesting, Ridley. It's been explored to death in dozens of better scifi shows already. And David being this super mega evil genius bad guy who needs to take up most of the movie time is just rolling. I wanted to see Shaw and some competent humans. But it's just the David show, more stupid humies, "now with xenos because you fags wouldn't shut up"
>>
>>159694636
producers have "million dollar" killer ideas that they want to shove into a movie (any possible movie) and they will ask the writers to insert it somehow in the script or have a concept artist draw some themes in a rough draft to be shown to the script writers, set artists or the director, to swoon them into it.

I don't mind the black goo or bioweapon stuff, it's turning the space jockeys into giant humans that ruins these prequels for me.

If it counts, put it in the movie Ridley. For fuck's sake.
>>
>>159694927
Prometheus actually did answer a question I had about the xenos. in ALIEN, presumably it was the first contact they had but the xeno looked the same as the ones that grow from human hosts so seeing the proto-xeno that grew from an engineer and the engineers being a genetic relative of humans was a cool moment. Other than that I agree.

>>
>>159695412
I had figured it was just from the space jockey. They did look similar to humans but with elephant face. And the one on screen was fused with the ship but could have had normal legs at some point.
>>
He had contempt for humans after witnessing their egos and upon witnessing the engineers home, he was filled with a sudden incel rage that they would create creatures like humans and were therefore tainted.
>>
>>159695669
They both are enjoyable compared to whedalien.
>>
>>159695696
He hated Weyland because he saw how imperfect and weak humans are yet a human created him. I think that's why he chose to wipe out the engineers' seed race because the engineers were also flawed so whatever he, a perfect entity, created would be superior regardless of what it actually was. He wasn't exactly subtle about thinking he was a god and a creator.

>>159695840
Fitting that he was obsessed with Lawrence because he also developed a god complex
>>
>>159695840
Right, but I don't think he initially intended to. I think he was mulling over stuff but when he saw them, he acted on his emotions so to speak, showing he was also a flawed creation like everything though he wouldn't recognize it.

>samefagging this obviously
>>
>>159695669
It is a semi-prequel to alien and that makes it terrible. The scary part of Alien is that they stumbled upon something out in space that's been there for thousands of years, completely unrelated to humanity, they didn't understand it but it could wipe them out. So what other horrors are out there waiting for us to accidentally find them as we explore space? Promteheus made it: oh it was humanity's creators all along and they were coming to earth, oh and an earth made android adjusted their bioweapon to create the xenos. Now it's all connected to humans, none of it was actually mysterious and nothing is alien.

he couldn't put it in the original movie because, well he just couldn't ok and he couldn't do post release shoots to add in an extended directors cut or even make concept art of said scene because... he was super busy filming... other stuff.
