Re: The Star Trek Into Darkness teaser trailer is here!

My guess is that they were Klingons. The brief glimpse of their head armor seemed to match or at least resemble what the Rura Penthe guards were wearing in the deleted scenes from the last film.

I'm now convinced that Cumberbatch is Gary Mitchell. One line in particular sold me.
Which one? There's some pretty solid Wrath of Khan callbacks too, so I'd say it's still leaning that way.

Did Gary Mitchell at any point say "Shall we begin?" during the TOS episode?
No, but I think Bane did in TDKR.

That settles it. Cumberbatch is playing Bane!

Yeah they have that bulkiness of shoulders.

I'm actually convinced that Cumberbatch is neither Khan or Mitchell, but possibly Garth. Then again, he could be a new character (the theory I've had the longest).

I'm inclined to think Alice Eve is playing a new character.

That would go against what the producers have said.

Maybe it's the longest, most annoying troll ever?

I didn't notice the Bat'leth! Cool... good continuity. Even some 22nd century Klingons ("Marauders(ENT)") carried them so there's no canon violation showing Klingons from over 100 years later using them in combat.

That orange glowing backdrop appears to be the same one that Abrams had in his MTV Awards skit that showed a close up of a Klingon on this computer monitor over his shoulder. So I guess before tonight we had seen Four frames.

Cumberbatch isn't even playing the villain.

So some of you take this as reinforcing the Mitchell theory? I thought the opposite. Hmm.
Well the women in the teaser has the same hair cut as Dehner

Maybe JJ just had the beautiful blonde NEW character have her hair cut that way as part of the longest troll ever.

Personally I'm going with Khan now, after seeing those trailers.
We'll see if the 2 minute trailer will shed some more light in a couple of weeks.

Yeah, I'm leaning more in the direction of the Gary Mitchell theory now than I was an hour ago.

Could still be wrong...but if that's Dehner in the trailer then I'd say Cumberbatch is in all likelihood the update of the old Gary Lockwood character.
Based on the trailer, I pretty much feel the same. Plus, Gary pulling starships from the sky sounds awesome....though it would be crazy difficult for the crew to beat him.

Even if it is Dehner, there's no reason that makes the villain Gary Mitchell. They could be mixing and matching elements.
