I completely get what Orci is saying especially on the Joker. However if they had decided to go with Khan they should not have made the film too close to the original.

Orci and Co going with Khan should have inspired them to do something new, fresh, unpredictable and original, devouring themselves of anything that will make STiD get compared to WOK.

The Kirk and Spock glass scene from WOK should never have been done and Spock should not have screamed Khan.

The Dark Knight and Batman 1989 are completely two different films, people hardly compare them.

Nolan was smart to make The Dark Knight his own film, He did not borrow or have his actors react any scene from Batman 1989 and this made both Batman 1989 and The Dark Knight well done films in their own rights. STiD sometimes came off as a WOK parody especially Spock screaming Khan.

I like and respect Orci but I so wish STiD turned out differently and it still doesn't change the fact that STiD is a solid good film.
This is pretty much exactly how I feel. Partly basing my expectations on the hope that they were going to do something different, around the time Khan and Kirk were "space jumping" to the Vengeance I started to think Khan was going to actually not end up turning on them.
