Re: Countdown to Darkness - Review and Discussion
^Right. It may be Marcus that the comic is setting up. April may not be mentioned at all in the film, any more than Picard, Data, Worf, and La Forge from Countdown were mentioned in the previous film.
They still might mention him. The production crew didn't call Spock's Jellyfish "LaForge's ship", yet they call Harrison's gun "April's gun".
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
