Was it or was it not an official announcement that the villain was one known in the previous timeline?
If it was official, then he's GOT to be someone we already know...
1. Alice Eve's and Benedict Cumberbatch' characters are Canon
2. Alice Eve is Officially revealed as Carol Marcus (A Canon Character)
3. Orci in Interview (Or was it someone else): I may have lied about one of them
So, yea, maybe, or maybe not
One Day I hope to be the Man my Cat thinks I am
Where are we going? And why are we in this Handbasket?
