Trekkies around the world are desperate to see just where J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, will take the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise. However, a lot more is being made of just who Kirk, Spock and all will be up against, with the villain being played by Brit Benedict Cumberbatch.
Most were expecting the iconic Khan (previously played by Ricardo Montalban in the best film in the franchise thus far), as the ‘baddie’ for the new adventure set in the far reaches of space. Earlier this year, many also brushed off Karl Urban’s ‘Gary Mitchell’ slip-up, pretty much straight way as a ‘misdirection’. However, the recent image that surfaced not long after the first impressive trailer came with the name ‘John Harrison’ tagged as Cumberbatch.
However, some are not so sure and believe Paramount Pictures are aiming to put fans off the scent! »
