I don't know. We're all used to the idea of Cumberbatch being Khan that I'm fairly sure our reaction to him being a white guy is played out. We've had a year to go through "Cumberbatch isn't Indian." "Neither was Ricardo Montalban." "How dare you go there! Your mother!!" Really, even if the movie did make it clear he was Khan, there'd be some grumblings from the Never Happy Crowd but I don't think it would be far beyond that.
I don't know about that. Never underestimate the power of righteous fan rage. Hell, I'd be ranting just for the sake of it....
Seriously though, I'm sure the film will be awesome. Cumby will do a great job, Khan or no.
