According to Karl Urban on the Dredd press junket, Benedict Cumberbatch is



So, is Urban joking (he's that kind of guy)? or is he loose-lipped and now in trouble with Abrams...


Of course, Orci has previously ruled that character out...

I suspect Urban is winding up the fanbase (of which he's at least as big a member as Simon Pegg), and TBH I still think it'll be a new character...

Cool if true!

So.... what was the point in having a comic book with this said character in the first place? I know it's the usual "comics aren't canon", but Bob and Alex have had an active role in keeping the expanded Trek09 universe consistent.

I think he's correct. A good deal of us had guessed this awhile back. And it explains a lot in the leaked fight sequenced.

I call BS on it. Unless they're gonna stand up and laugh at the fans for buying into their "With oversight from Bad Robot and bridging the gap between movies!" Expanded Universe comics.

I'm betting it's a windup.

A red herring

Despite his apparent 'death' in the comix he could come back. He did become omnipotent, correct? Whose to say his death wasn't only a temporary condition?

Or it could all be some kind of misunderstanding, mistake or misdirection.

did Gary Mitchell die in Star Trek Ongoing or not? So, did he lose his powers and now wants revenge?
because if he still has the power, he is indestructible.

Maybe he meant a new character named Mitchell Gary.

Or Mary Gitchell.

(Hey, Star Trek is about a more progressive future, after all)

Comics are not canon...

Orci said himself the Countdown comics were not canon when we all thought they were.
