Re: New Info! (Bad Robot press event/villain ID'd, etc.) *SPOILERS*
^ Orci specifically said that Alice Eve's character was "new to canon" and that Cumberbatch's character was someone from TOS lore. Since Carol Marcus is not new to canon in any way and Orci said that he was only lying about one
of the two things he said vis a vis characters, he was therefore pulling a switcheroo on us, and lied about which of the two characters was actually from canon and which one was not.
