Re: New poster seems proof UHURA has replaced DR. MCCOY in the big thr
Well they replaced Bones with Uhura in the last poster too. I think it's just movie economics. Girl power and all that bullshit. As Red Letter Media review said, they wouldn't want anyone thinking these characters might be gay.
I think it sucks that Bones isn't on it though but it seems to me that his character won't have as big a role in JJs movies. Which is a damn shame if true because Urban does an awesome Bones.
Bones had a bigger role than in some of the ST original movies.
Its marketing, not girl power. They did similar things in the 80s posters, as has been pointed out.
