Paramount and Star Trek 2 aren’t at San Diego Comic-Con 2012, but Karl Urban is. The star of Dredd plays a big role in Trek 2, and in an interview we conducted to talk about Dredd, he said that there will be some kind of Star Trek 2 footage premiering on YouTube this weekend. Is he being honest? Is this a J.J. Abrams twist? Read his quote and speculate after the jump.
For my last question of the Dredd interview (which we’ll run closer to the release of the film) I asked Urban if he’s been messing with fans, dropping a supposed name of Benedict Cumberbatch’s villain and teasing that we’ll see Star Trek 2 footage soon:
“I’m not messing with you. I’m not one to do that,” he said. “There is gonna be some very special footage coming out this weekend for comic con. A Star Trek exclusive coming to YouTube. It’ll be ‘Star Trek Comic Con Sneak Peak.’”
I guess we’ll have to wait until this weekend to see if he’s being truthful, or what exactly is shown, but Urban did not sound like he was joking.
