Trek Movie guess: Khan.
I skimmed that article, and I find its reasoning very spurious. It's not examining the evidence and drawing a conclusion, it's starting with a preconceived expectation and cherrypicking the evidence to support it.

Imagine, you watch Into Darkness, Harrison die and the end of the film doesn´t clarify if Cumby is Khan or not. It is possible with JJ.

Also wondering how the whole Eugenics Wars thing would be presented. I imagine it might get mentioned as in TWOK when Montal-Khan intones, "On Earth...two hundred years ago...I was a prince. With power over millions!"

Don't have to say 1996... can just make some vague reference to Earth's past.

Peter Weller is Khan. He has a ship, remember?

You're mistaken.

This isn't a tv show, and it's not a skiffy book.
And I did give an example of an earlier Star Trek movie as well, so your response is invalid as well as needlessly confrontational. I also think you're misunderstanding the concept of examples and how they work.
It's what he does.

Thank you. It's ever so much easier when I don't have to guess or read minds.

Hmm.

There's also a scene in the Japanese trailer that seems to be an homage to Spock and Kirk's final scene together in TWOK. Personally, I suspect it's neither Khan or Mitchell and the homages are just that - homages.

I'm still hoping for Garth of Izar.
