Wouldn't anyone be a tad disappointed if they recycle an old character rather than come up with something new? Doesn't anyone credit them with originality?
Oh, right. You must have all seen Star Trek 2009 as well.
I think the entire point of "recycling" and old character right now is to give the fans a little treat to say "Hey! It's Gary Mitchell again!" or something. It's essentially harmless, especially if they do something different with the character. Even if they reveal to us his name, that's all we have, a name.
