Abrams: The Villain And Some Lucky Fans

In a recent video interview, J.J. Abrams gave an update on Star Trek Into Darkness and officially confirmed the villain. “We’re just editing now,” said Abrams of Star Trek into Darkness, which will appear in theaters next May. Although he didn’t want to go into details about the movie, saying that “it was too early [...]

Re: Abrams: The Villain And Some Lucky Fans

I got all excited and then saw all he confirmed is that Cumberbatch is playing the villain. Well, duh, we figured that out. We want a name, dammit.

Re: Abrams: The Villain And Some Lucky Fans

I do recall some discussion here whether Cumberbatch was playing the villian, which was silly because if he's not playing the villian, he hasnt got the major role we all expect. There's been too much hooplah for him to have a bit part.

He's playing Sherlock Homes, of course. Star Trek Into Darkness will be an adaptation of the old Holmesian Federation fanzines of the 70's.

Re: Abrams: The Villain And Some Lucky Fans

Abrams is really starting to take the piss now. What next, confirmation that Chris Pine is playing Kirk? Because it really hasn't been firmly established that he's playing Kirk in this movie and just because he was Kirk in the 2009 movie doesn't mean anything.

If he is trolling the fans - and that's a bit dubious - then I say a job well done to him.

Re: Abrams: The Villain And Some Lucky Fans

LOL - had me going there for a moment: "In a recent video interview, J.J. Abrams gave an update on Star Trek Into Darkness and officially confirmed the villain." Cool! Khan? Mitchell? Who?

Scroll down...

"Abrams also confirmed that Cumberbatch was the villain."

Fuck.

"it was too early to be talking specifically about the movie"

We know there is a movie. That is about the extent of it. Maybe with Trek 13 he could go one step further and film the whole thing without anyone outside of the production aware of it's existence. The Area 51 of film projects.

Re: Abrams: The Villain And Some Lucky Fans

"Abrams also confirmed that the events of Star Trek Into Darkness take place sequentially after the events of the previous film, and that there would be a conflict that the crew of the Enterprise would be involved in. 'I feel like I've almost said too much,' Abrams opined - but then immediately gave away the conclusion of the film: 'It ends. And then there are credits.' He smiled coyly. 'I won't tell you whose names are in the credits. It will be interesting.'"

Clearly he's playing Darwin Tremor.
