Two. Both off-camera.

That happened to Sunshine, but I can't recall any other instance where a movie fell apart like that.
There's a horror movie called Jeepers Creepers, the first third/half of the movie is actually quite promising, including a couple *very* striking visual shots. Alas, the "big reveal" is an enormous letdown and from there it turns into utter mindlesness.

IGN and Collider is saying on twitter Alice Eve is Carol Marcus. This is coming from the Bad Robot press release today. They will probably reveal it in a few hours officially.

But Carol Marcus wasn't a member of Starfleet.

Heck, maybe she resigns by the end of the movie.

Maybe she is in this alternate reality. Her background story at Memory Alpha has her working in labs on starbases.

THAT's the big reveal?

Who the fuck is John Harrison?
Seconded.

Why say he can 'heal people', and why cast a chick who looks like a dead ringer for Dr Elizabeth Dehner, and then say he's NOT Gary Mitchell? Abrams and co better be just screwing with us

Ok she is not a dead ringer of Dehner! That been the biggest BS I have read on this movie. She just another blonde with a similar hair cut. We never saw a young Carol Marcus, they probably just decided to give her a 60s style hair style.

Comming soon.net has a write up of the first 9 minuets. Not too much is revealed but we do know that the movie is not going to be as dark as many fans fear and that is good news.

So its NOT Khan? That bodes well!
One preview said that Cumberbatch's mystery villain approached the family at the hospital offering "healing abilities" to help with their daughter. Which character, if they are, from the series had those kind of powers or access to them?

EDIT: Admittedly, it did remind me of this, but that doesn't really rule out any other kind of healing powers that could be found in the Trek universe.
Garth of Izar.
He was given similiar abilities by the species that found him and nursed him to health.

Actually there isn't a specific point that I can think where it was made clear that she was never in Starfleet, she just wasn't by the time TWOK came around.

See, now this is a perfect example of how confirmation bias works.

All the time people have been bleating about how Eve's character's haircut looks exactly like Dehner's (it doesn't), they certainly never considered that Carol Marcus wore hers short and blonde as well.

Better Marcus than Dehner in any case. At least with Marcus, there's a story and relationship to Kirk that can be subverted. Really mess with the (Trek) audience expectations.

Carol has been floated as a possibility many times.

Meh, everyone from Amelia Earhart to Queen Victoria have been "floated as a possibility." Only the determined proponents of a single unlikely candidate for Big Bad have been pointing to photographs of Eve as "proof" of their thesis.
