is "Into Darkness" Quinto's last as Spock?

IMO, yes. He's just saying he wants a variety of roles and not to be typecast as "that serial killer" or as Spock. Plus, doing one more Trek film after Into Darkness could well be seen as his time as Spock coming to an end.

Like everything else that is passing as "news" about the new movie right now, this seems to be stretching something into nothing.

If he does quite, good for him! There's a danger to doing the same part for to long, loads of genre actors/actresses will know that. And how boring must it be to play the same part for a few decades?

I believe Zach will be in the third movie (because the contract) and its over, of course, if Into Darkness is a huge success. Money is money.

Re: is "Into Darkness" Quinto's last as Spock?

Well, I'm glad he's under contract for 3 movies. It sounds like he may be tired of playing the part already, which is too bad. I think his character is the least replaceable of them all, and I don't want to see Uhura with a different Spock, and surely I do not want to see Spock killed off. I hope that's not what "into darkness" is referencing...

This could be a number of things or nothing. Things that it could be:

Fandom: I think he took a lot of heat for playing new Spock as he was written. I hope he knows that people were reacting to seeing a side of Spock that they weren't used to seeing far more than anyone actually thinking he didn't do well enough because he was fantastic in the role. Makes me think of drudging up my appreciation thread again.

Uhura: Okay, this is a passing thought, and I really hope all it is is a thought. He really doesn't' tend to play heterosexual characters with love interests. I think part of what might have drawn him to Spock is that you can see the character as asexual if you want to because he never really had any emotional ties to someone that way (that we could see). Then, imagine signing up for the role and reading the script only to find that your character is into kissing someone, and she's got boobies. Spock/Uhura are my favorite part of the reboot, but seeing as since Zachary came out a year ago and really is working for equal rights for that community, this could be a downer for him. I really do hope there's no truth to this.

Or, this could just be contract renegotiation time, and if so, then I do support Zachary having the best deal possible without it being extreme. Last thing, he really could just be bored. We're only 2 movies in, the second one hasn't even been released yet, and already this franchise is having more than its fair share of problems.

So, that's my over-analyzing for the day.

Re: is "Into Darkness" Quinto's last as Spock?

Sounds to me more like a comment about how claims that only Shatner could be Kirk and only Nimoy could be Spock aren't being made anymore. Someone else could play Sylar, if Heroes returned, just as Quinto successfully took on the role of Spock.

Re: is "Into Darkness" Quinto's last as Spock?

I personally do not believe there is anything in those comments which means anything significant. But let's play with this for a moment, shall we? If Darkness is indeed Quinto's last movie, what does this mean for Spock? Surely they would not recast him again so soon, so this could likely mean that Spock could die in the movie. Abrams and his cohorts really want to mimic TWOK, don't they? Also, this narrows things down and makes it pretty damn obvious that Cumberbatch must be playing Khan.

Re: is "Into Darkness" Quinto's last as Spock?

Yeah, it could be nothing, but on the other side, the "era of association" comment that pavonis referenced could mean that he's stepping to the side for some reason. Were the reports of fights and hostilities on the set true??? We could play this game all day.

The alleged fights and hostilities were between Simon Pegg and Deep Roy. No effect on Quinto at all.

Re: is "Into Darkness" Quinto's last as Spock?

Since Quinto was so excited about playing Spock in the first place (IIRC he said he was born to play Spock and lobbied heavily to get the role), I don't see him giving it up.

They'll drive a dump truck full of money up to this house if Into Darkness is a mega-hit, they'll simply replace him if its a mid-range hit.

I agree with spock/uhura fan.

I hope Zachary doesnt get recast,he was the one that looked the part the most. I really hope all is well with him and the cast.
