We still don’t know who Benedict Cumberbatch is playing in STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS. In fact, it’s getting to the point where the big reveal is going to be anti-climatic after all the hype and speculation. But that’s how J.J. Abrams wants it and J.J. gets what J.J. wants.
That brand new image above gives us a clear look at Cumberbatch as…John Harrison. Well, that’s how Paramount is billing him but you can bet that’s a pseudonym. Surely he’s Gary Mitchell or Khan or…well, that’s the extent of my STAR TREK knowledge.
I couldn’t care less about who Cumberbatch is. I just want a good movie, dammit. I’m relatively certain we’ll get that, regardless of who “John Harrison” is. Rumors aside, I’m damn excited for Abrams’s return to the Enterprise.
STAR TREK fans, remember that select 3D IMAX showings of THE HOBBIT will be showing the first nine minutes of INTO DARKNESS this weekend. Get on it.
