We know there are Klingons. I'm still thinking that Kor, Koloth or Kang will be leading them. But I'm pretty sure Cumberbatch is not playing one. Unless he's a Klingon disguised as a human.

I definitely agree. The shirt is torn exactly like it was in the episode with the neck ring intact.
Was the neck ring intact?:

At one point it was lol
Well, yeah -- the neck ring was intact before the shirt was ripped at all .

However, the the first time we saw the ripped shirt, the neck ring was also ripped.
Here is the FIRST GLIMPSE we get of the ripped shirt. This is about two or three seconds after the shirt was seen NOT ripped (Kirk had just dived at Mitchell, and before and during the dive the shirt was not ripped):




But alas, having shown all of this is probably provides no evidence either way as to whether the film includes Gary Mitchell or not.

Well, I'm a fan, and two of my favorites are Mr. Kyle and Kevin Riley (seriously).
I'd like to see Kevin Riley in the film -- maybe singing "I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen".

He has to sing it at least as many times as in the original episode or I'll refuse to watch.

I'm be disappointed if they go with Gary Mitchell as the villain. I don't want to see Kirk go up against yet another God like villian. We had more than enough of that in TOS.

At least Khan was more unique being a superhuman and had a more interesting past as a dictator.

And those episodes were nearly fifty years ago and this version of Kirk has went up against zero God-like villains.

What does a God-like villain need with a starship?

The movie will be worth the price of admission if Pine speaks that line!

Who needs starships when you've got transwarp beaming?

Re: Speculation: Must the villain be Gary Mitchell, or... ?

I'm going to go ahead and stake my claim in the speculation game: I'm going with a shapeshifter like Garth of Izar. First all the talk of Khan, then the way Urban worded his comment about "Cumberbatch's Gary Mitchell" being "exemplary". I'm thinking JJ is wanting to "cheat" and cram several TOS iconic villains into his movie by using a changeling that will impersonate these other characters and go after Kirk that way.

Just pulling that out of my, er, hat, so I'm not going to wager any money on it or anything.

Not to mention the coincidence of Koloth looking just like Trelane!

Wasn't "Talosian" on Orci's list of possibles? Another shapeshifter, through the power o the mind. We still have Pike, and he has a history with Talosians in the other timeline.

If the villain is portrayed well, then who cares whether it's Mitchell, Khan, or the Tribble Emperor?

It's not the character that counts, it's what is done with that character.
In all honesty, I'd much rather watch the Tribble Emperor (of Random Capitalisations) than Khan...but I suppose we must take what we get.

Hmmm...Is that why the other thread is titled The Trouble with Trailers?
