I would love it if this was true. I really like the idea of Robert April, the benevolent elder Captain from the prime universe, being reimagined as a vengeance-crazed threat to the fleet in this timeline. Appeals to me much more than Khan, Mitchell or George Lennon (or whatever he's called).
Could Robert April be played by Peter Weller?
Why not? The ultimate deception would be to keep letting out information that keeps people focused on speculating about Cumberbatch's character, while the truly big reveal will be Weller's character, who is getting little or no attention.
Problem is, it's been said Weller's character is new to canon. Wait. Technically, Robert April would be new to canon, wouldn't he? Hmm.
It may be April's gatling gun being used by Cumberbatch's character. Who knows?
