The newest slab of viral marketing from Ridley Scott and his Prometheus team offers to make the dream of the world's women, and more than a few of her men, come true—the ability to have the X-Men: First Class and 300 star for themselves, doing whatever he's ordered to do.

Previously, Scott and Damon Lindelof gave us a fake TED talk with Peter Weyland, the Alien series' father of synthetic humans. Now we get a look at one of those androids: the David 8.

Pieces of the puzzle are beginning to fall into place, and the fact that Fassbender is blazing the trail that Ian Holm and Lance Henriksen's characters would follow is, for this genre fan, an intoxicating development.
