Re: Cumberbatch talks John Harrison [spoilers]

A political terrorist? So much for the great 'escapism' that is Star Trek!
That's pretty lame. Revenge, terrorists, etc. It's like a skipping record with this shit.
I rewatched Trek 09 last night and enjoyed it but thought to myself... I wish there was something really different happening this time besides someone bent on revenge, etc. Who knows? Once the full 9 minutes have been previewed maybe it'll be clear what's happening.

It's still escapist!

It provides "escape" from a universe where there is no transporter technology, warp drive, or known habitable planets other than Earth.

Star Trek is often about whats happening in the real world, only with the "serial numbers" filed off. Escapism wasn't really its goal.

Yep, I have to agree. Star Trek is at its best when it deals with current issues.

Thank you, J.J.!

What is cool is that the character sounds exactly like Shinzon.

Re: Cumberbatch talks John Harrison [spoilers]

The only character from TOS that matches these stregnths is Charlie Evans. Or maybe it is a Klingon altered and wants revenge on star fleet as well as the empire for wronging him.

Khan did have mental powers. Don't forget how he opened that door from inside his cabin in Space Seed.

Or you could just wait and find out when you see the movie.
They don't have to spoil the whole movie. Just at least give us concrete info. It's stupid to keep doing this and keep us guessing even though I'm sure they think they're clever and it's better for us.

Knowing some stuff doesn't spoil an experience necessarily.
What else do you want to know? They've even given you a name!

With his bare hands, unless I'm completely misremembering.

We'd seen Khan do that once or twice previously, and also seen similar gestures made by his followers upon their release from suspended animation. I don't see it as being indicative of any mental powers, though; seems more the sort of thing an athlete or acrobat or martial artist might do in preparation before performing a feat of strength or skill - a quick discipline to focus or center the concentration.
