Sequel Bits: ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Villain Speculation and Other Talk, Plus ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,’ and ‘The X-Files 3’
Posted on Thursday, December 6th, 2012 by Russ Fischer
Clearly some of the biggest movie talk today involves theories on just what the Star Trek Into Darkness teaser trailer means. More specifically, what character does Benedict Cumberbatch play? Is he a version of the famous baddie Khan? A take on the classic TV enemy Gary Mitchell? Or someone else altogether?
That image above is one of several pieces of “evidence” that Cumberbatch might be Khan, but it is by no means conclusive. In addition to that, after the break we’ve got:
- The Russian title and poster for Star Trek Into Darkness, which could spur minor discussion,
- Jonathan Frakes hopes in vain for Next Generation characters to show up in an Abrams film,
- Andy Serkis talks a bit about Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,
- and The X-Files 3 just isn’t going anywhere right now.
