The guys over at AvP Galaxy have come by some big news regarding a previously unrevealed Alien: Covenant cast member. It seems none other than James Franco (Spider-Man, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) will have a role in Ridley Scott's Prometheus follow up, playing a character named Branson, who is the Captain of the Covenant and the husband of Catherine Waterson's Daniels.

“Franco’s appearance in Alien: Covenant will only be brief", cautions the site. "He appears in the first ten minutes or so of the film with later small appearances.” The actor is also expected to play a promonent role in some of the viral footage that's been shot to promote the film.

UPDATE: We've been asked to remove the link to the images.
