Yeah, I'm not sure why everybody is so convinced that they're bringing back an old villain.
Because Bob Orci did say, ages ago, that at least one villain in the movie was to be a canonical TOS character. But, of course, that might not be Benedict Cumberbatch's character.

It's a mixture of Mitchell and Khan created by a transporter accident.
Or, a Khan taught the wonders of shapeshifting by the Thasians, Kelvans or Antosians?

You really want shape shifters, don't you.

Re: Speculation: Must the villain be Gary Mitchell, or... ?

Why assume there has to be a dedicated villain? Some of the best episodes of Trek don't have a villain. TOS's City of the Edge of Forever, TNG's Darmok, Inner Light, DS9's the Vistor.

I highly doubt Abrams would take such an approach given the cliche action heavy style of the last movie, but it's a possibility.

No, not at all, but the phenomenon would be an easy explanation for some of the speculations.

I say Cumberbatch is an Augment, hence the Khan rumors. But he's a Starfleet-bred Augment, a Starfleet that's rapidly losing it's way, slipping (wait for it!) ...Into Darkness. *cue apocalyptic music*

Given the hints to Section 31 in the comics, that might just be what happens!

So a remake of "The Deadly Years", as a means of inserting Shatner into the film?

At the top of the cover, on the left, enlarging the image, I saw a shadow of a ship (I think so), a nascelle and a disc, but itīs not like the Enterprise. Can anyone see this or itīs an illusion?
