its a shame.I really wanted him to be khan... oh well.

I am guessing Khan recruits Gary Mitchell in the film and that is why we see him beating up Spock

Re: So...Cumberbatch is [SPOILER?]

That is just somebody speculating and isn't official but I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be true. I never really believed Khan was going to be the villain and thought "Gary Mitchell" as soon as I found out Del Toro had been replaced by Cumberbatch. It could be interesting seeing Kirk and company dealing with a more "supernatural" enemy than the more standard villain represented by Nero.

Even if it is true, that would not necessarily make this film a remake of WNMHGB (and I know you didn't say it was). They could simply be using the character (i.e, a good friend of Kirk), and write a totally different story using that character.

Re: So...Cumberbatch is [SPOILER?]

I don't see any confirmation, just speculation. Besides, "Where No Man..." was already remade and Mitchell bumped off in the first and second issues of the Star Trek comic - a series which has Bad Robot writer Bob Orci on board specifically to avoid the comic conflicting with the upcoming movie.

Re: So...Cumberbatch is [SPOILER?]

Whether or not there's anything new here, not cool putting that kind of information right in the subject line...

Some of us want to be surprised.

The article is bunk, and misspells Khan.

Cumberbatch is clearly playing a volcano.

serenitytrek1, the article you've linked had "Star Trek Into Darkness Movie Spoilers and Rumors" in the title, and had a spoiler warning placed at the head of the article, yet you did not extend the same courtesy to your fellow posters here, who may have wished to remain unspoiled.

I know that I've explained to you before that you shouldn't post spoilers or possible spoilers without giving fair warning or placing the spoilers inside spoiler tags - preferably both.

Ideally, if you're posting a thread which contains (or may contain) spoilers, you will indicate this by placing a flag such as "[SPOILERS]" clearly in the subject line, NOT by putting the spoiler itself in the subject line so that everyone can read it on the forum index page, whether they wanted to or not.

When you take away someone's choice by revealing details about a movie without stopping to consider first whether that person/those people wanted to know those details before watching, that's considered a breach of etiquette - quite simply, it's rude. Please don't be rude again.

Re: So...Cumberbatch is [POSSIBLE CASTING SPOILER]

I believe the bad guy will be the character 'Decius' from first season. He even favors Cumberbatch with that long face. See here:

Since it has not been confirmed that Cumberbatch is playing Gary Mitchell (and may not be for some time, if ever) let's keep even speculated spoilers out of thread titles, please. If people want to know, they can look, but allow them to make the choice themselves.

Edit:

Since the TrekWeb item linked is basically reposting information from the spoily/speculation article under discussion in this thread, I'm going to merge your thread with that one... in 3.. 2.. 1..

Interesting. Cumberbatch favors first season character 'Decius' from 'Balance Of Terror. Green eyes could represent Romulan green blood since Decius was the gung ho junior officer aboard the Romulan praetors flagship.
