Also of note: that page has a release date for issue 1. January 30. Which is consistent with when Countdown issue 1 was released (end of January 2009).

In other words, it's likely that there will be a trailer by then.


Even so, I don't expect them to reveal the identity of BC's character in the trailer. I could be wrong, but I really see J.J. attempting to keep it under wraps until opening day of the movie.

Since Cumberbatch is supposed to be the central villain of Darkness, logically he'll be in the comic. To leave him out would be like leaving Nero out of Countdown.

At the very least they aren't going to wait until the movie's release, that just isn't practical. In particular, as The Villain he's going to have to be part of the first wave of action figures, which are always released before the movie is out, since that's when they sell the best. Even Abrams realizes this, Trek XI's action figures were out a month before the movie.

No, we'll have a trailer and the identity of Cumberbatch's character before this comic's release.

Well, it looks like Kirk is fading away on that cover. I'm going to go with Tholians.

I never noticed that! I hope it IS a typo they'll fix, and not some awful Mortal Kombat-style spelling shit. Star Trek Into Darrkness.

It's amazing how much speculation is generated by a blurry image. It shows how creative Trek fans are. Now that we see it clearly there's not much there there.

Likely there will be four interlocking covers making up the complete Starfleet delta insignia. One featuring Kirk, Spock, Uhura and the Cumberbatch character.

I agree with BillJ. There are four editions of Star Trek Countdown to Darkness. This is just one of them. Cumberbatch may be the last one.

You've got a lot of valid points and I hope you're right, specifically in regard to the above. I still don't see the veil of secrecy being lifted that early, but I hope I'm wrong.
