Re: Urban outs the villain. Maybe.

Bob Orci said that both Alice Eve and Cumberbatch are playing Canon characters. Has that been talked about here yet?

I'm thinking Eve as Carol Marcus. I'm leaving the Cumberbatch thing alone. No use driving myself even further up the wall.

I'm still thinking Section 31 is in here SOMEWHERE. The organization itself reeks of plot and cinema deliciousness.

Actually, Alice Eve is playing a "new to canon" character, whatever the hell that means. Presumably, it's just his maddeningly cryptic way of saying new character.

Eve and Cumberbatch are playing canon characters. So someone we have seen before. Marcus and Khan?

Re: Urban outs the villain. Maybe.

Not Mitchell.

Kha-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-n!

Roberto Orci, screenwriter of the last and next Star Trek movies, confirmed to TrekMovie.com what Orci told me June 23 on KERN-AM radio: Benedict Cumberbatch will not play Gary Mitchell in the next Star Trek movie.
Karl Urban, who plays Dr. McCoy in the new movies, joked this week that Cumberbatch would be playing Mitchell. Many journalists took Urban’s comment seriously.
"He’s awesome, he’s a great addition, and I think his Gary Mitchell is going to be exemplary,” Urban jested when asked about Cumberbatch's Trek character during a "Dredd" promotion.
“I would say that I never lie,” Orci told TrekMovie when asked about his radio interview with me, “while Karl tests all those hypo spray props on himself.”
Numerous reliable non-Urban sources indicate that Cumberbatch is playing Khan Noonian Singh, the role created by Ricardo Montalban in the Trek TV series and the second Trek movie.

I still don't get why people think we're getting a remake? The motivation for Khan will have to be totally different as Kirk never stranded him in this timeline. Plus, Space Seed is too thin on story and too talkie for a modern action movie.

If it is Khan, we will be going down a totally different road with the character.

Re: Urban outs the villain. Maybe.

Cumberbatch will be playing DTI agent Lucksly, sent back in time from the 24th century on a desperate quest to repair the timeline. He can shrug off Spock's neck pinch and Uhura's phaser blast due to his sheer nerd rage at all the canon violations going on all around him.

It may not technically be a "remake", but they are revisiting something that's already been done.

But then again, to expect originality from the gang that brought us Transformers II wouldn't be very realistic, or fair FTM.

I just hope (nu)Klingons play important role in the movie. Wouldn't hurt to see some Romulans either. Real, BoT type Romulans, not tattooed roughnecks.

"Klingons" have already been done. Not counting I:TMP and IV:TVH, and not counting a film just because Worf's in it, we've got III:TSFS, V:TFF, VI:TUD, VII:GEN. Why, that's 40% of the pre-nuTrek films!

Still not convinced though... I have absolutely no idea now who is the villain.
Maybe you won't even know who the villain is after you've seen the whole film.
Hey, that's exactly the kind of subtly nuanced story I'm looking for ...
Moral ambiguity can make for an interesting story.

Wait a minute...

You have a problem with them using Khan who we haven't seen on screen in thirty years, but have no problems with Klingons and Romulans being in it? Those two have been used over and over and over again in the last forty-five years.

I really don't understand...
