Interesting Cumberbatch Character theory

http://www.newsarama.com/film/star-t...an-theory.html This is over at Newsarama. Not really spoilers. Just an interesting theory this guy came up for the identity of Cumberbatch's character. I find it extremely interesting.

Allegedly EW spoiled who Cumberbatch really is



I'm getting this at their page




so I don't know if the spoiler pic is a fake, if they edited it to remove the spoiler or if it was just a mistake since that theory is popular.

It's not just an image.

The whole thing is still on the EW web site if you know where to look.

ahem..... http://backissues.ew.com/storefront/...20130215A.html

Ah, cool.
Still, I wonder if they actually know something or they're just going with the popular theory.

I'm thinking popular theory. They blow Abrams surprise and they probably wouldn't be welcome around his future productions.

Re: Interesting Cumberbatch Character theory

I'd have to assume they know something. I don't think a big time entertainment mag would make such assumptions like say IMDB.

Plus I would think that JJ and company would have a big problem with this either way due to the wide circulation, but everything was kind of pointing onwards Khan being involved all along.

It could've also been a sloppy headline writer for the webpage, especially if the print issue mentions nothing.

So, I wonder if there are any definitive mentions of the name in the print issue? I wonder if lawyers are being consulted by certain executives, directors, and publishers right now? I wonder if this was an intentional leak? I wonder if someone just got fired?

Re: Interesting Cumberbatch Character theory

Why does "Voyage into the new Star Trek Kirk & Khan" make it sound like Fantastic Voyage?

From the OP article:
If Abrams pulls the rug out from under moviegoers and the villain is revealed to be utterly unrelated to Khan, there will be a letdown, even for fans indifferent to it being Khan
I'm pretty sure fans who are indifferent by definition don't really care who it is. And even if he isn't Khan, is anybody here actually going to be let down?

Firing someone pretty much confirms its true. They'll just quietly sweep it under the rug as a mistake.

I guess it depends on the indifference. It being Khan is indifferent to me because it doesn't have to be Khan for me to see the film. I'm going no matter what.

That being said I expect it to be Khan or in some way related. All of the breadcrumbs seem to indicate that.

Usually people hate blatant swerving.

I know exactly what it says, I'm just not buying that they actually know anything. I think that's just a sloppy web editor, it may turn to be the case, but, I don't believe they have any actual knowledge to support that blurb. Why would JJ choose now to reveal that? It makes no sense to me
