Beware of potential Star Trek Into Darkness spoilers...
While J.J. Abrams' upcoming sci-fi sequel Star Trek Into Darkness has been shrouded in a cloak of almost complete secrecy from the moment it was first announced, the one question that's been on everyone's lips is the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's villain. Originally it was rumoured that Abrams' was to follow the map laid out by Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan by introduction the genetically-enhanced 20th century warlord Khan Noonien Singh, before images started to surface showing Benedict Cumberbatch wearing a Starfleet uniform.
This immediately lent support to the theory that his character would be that of helmsman Gary Mitchell, the Starfleet officer who gains god-like powers in the Star Trek: Tos pilot 'Where No Man Has Gone Before', but Paramount Pictures then threw a spanner in the works when an official image referred to him as 'John Harrison'. »
