Re: Rumor that will cause me not to see the sequel!

I'm so boycotting this movie if they don't have Chris Pine in his underwear again!

Well, ok. I'll go anyway.

But if i've said it once, i've said it a thousand times. PULEEEZE no Khan. Please JJ?

Re: Rumor that will cause me not to see the sequel!

Khan only worked in TWOK because of the events that happened after Space Seed that turned him into a vengeance seeking villain. The Khan of Space Seed was a brilliant leader used to being in control who suddenly found himself in another time and with no world of his own. He was a dangerous man, but not villainous.
Kirk was eventually able to gain control over him, reason with him, and give him a chance to establish a world of his own. At the end of the episode, I think Khan actually had some respect for Kirk.

In short, the hook that made Khan Khan in TWOK wouldn't be there in a movie that used him in another context. He'd know Kirk less well than Nero even did (at least what Nero knew of his universe's Kirk).

Re: Rumor that will cause me not to see the sequel!

How about a sequel based on Way to Eden? Then the soundtrack can have the jams they use in the movie. It's win all around.

Eminem as Adam. Dr. Dre as Dr Severin.

Do you really not trust the team behind Trek now to give us a great movie? Haven't they earned our trust?

They've earned mine. No matter what they do, I'm confident it will be good.

They did very well reinvigorating the franchise. But, I don't know if I'd give them my blind trust. After all, Gene Coon produced some of the best TOS episodes and wrote Bread and Circuses (with Roddenberry), but he also wrote Spock's Brain and Spectre of the Gun (the latter with Roddenberry).

I don't want to see Khan right away either, but if they do it and if they can pull it off, then so be it. Ultimately, all that matters is that they make a good movie.

Don't believe any story rumors. They don't even have a script yet.

It's customary to provide some links to these interviews so that the rest of us would be able to read them. Otherwise, it's just another rumor, as far as any of us can tell.

A bit early for boycotts, isn't it?

...and i don't think he will really care if old fart fans like us don't go see it. That is really the whole point of doing this. He wants to bring in NEW fans, and hopes to keep most of the old fans...

And in my opinion he is doing JUST fine...So if he wants to do Khan...or Vgr....or bring the whales back...or Doomsday Machine...

In essense...JJ has a blank check with me...

Re: Rumor that will cause me not to see the sequel!

I saw Nemesis in the theater and regretted it afterward. I seriously doubt that anything would deter me from seeing it. As much as I would like them to leave Khan alone, and besides which Khan seems to be a fan pushed idea for the sequel than anything coming from the creative team. I think they've just mentioned that they're fans of Khan and Star Trek II.
