Cumberbatch starting Into Darkness PR tour?

The new issue of Japan's Movie Star Magazine has tweets saying that Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the unknown villian in "Star Trek Into Darkness", is headed to Japan on December 3rd, to begin a public relations campaign for the film.
If this is true, he HAS to reveal the name of his character in the film... right?

Re: Cumberbatch starting Into Darkness PR tour?

Well.. I just can't imagine doing a tour and NEVER answering that question. How do you even talk about your role?

All he has to say is that he's a one-man weapon of mass destruction.

"So Benedict, we know you can't give too many details yet.. but what would you say is your character's driving personality trait?"

"Detonation."

"And this villain, he stirs up some trouble for Captain Kirk I'm assuming by..?"

"Detonation."

and on and on

Likely Cumberbatch quote-

I'm a street walking cheetah
With a heart full of napalm
I'm a runaway son of the nuclear A-bomb
I am a world's forgotten boy
The one who searches and destroys
Honey gotta help me please
Somebody gotta save my soul
Baby detonates for me
Look out honey, 'cause I'm using technology !

Is it just me, or has TrekWeb been doing quite a bit of this lately - posting some bit of "news" about the movie and later correcting or retracting their original report?

Even if I'm imagining that, the simple fact is that a PR tour for STiD really doesn't make sense at this time; it's far too early yet. In February or March, yes, in April certainly, but not now.

That's kind of the whole mood of this movie so far.

Yes. They were even warned by Bad Robot to stop doing that from the rumor of Quinto leaving Star Trek.
