It's like the Force. It surrounds us, binds us together . . . and it definitely has a Dark Side.

Re: Why Khan?

In light of his ethnicity, Cumberbatch will in fact be playing someone called McCann.

Re: Why Khan?

Someone with wishful thinking has listed Cumberbatch's character as "Khan (rumored)" on IMDB....

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1408101/...=tt_cl_sm#cast

But for some reason,

Re: Why Khan?

You can't trust IMDB when it comes to upcoming films. I knew for a fact that they had some of the characters' names wrong the whole time I was writing The Dark Knight Rises novelization. And that's been the case with several other movies as well.

It's just as infested with rumors and speculation as the rest of the internet.

Re: Why Khan?

And remember, for the longest time, IMDB's page for Nemesis had listed every actor who ever played a Romulan on TNG, and none of them were in the movie.

Re: Why Khan?

It was the same way with the Underworld sequels. Prior to their release, the IMDB listings would routinely include fan-favorite characters and actors who didn't actually return for this or that sequel. It was all wishful thinking and speculation.

We all did.

I'm looking at you, Matthew Modine.

Samuel L. Jackson was listed as Rose's Husband Bernard on LOST, before the Character was introduced

Re: Why Khan?

"It seems like the speculation that the villain in STID is Khan has been going on since before the movie was even planned. I have one question for those of you who still support this theory: WHY SHOULD IT BE HIM?"

It could be him, unless it is just a coincidence that the character, Harrison, was in Space Seed and shall be in STID. Another duo-point of suspiciousness: Abrams trickiness and the idea of Benecio Del Toro being the first choice for the villain (one who could actually swing the role effectively). I wouldn't put it past trickster Abrams to have hired Del Toro on the sly, getting Cumberback to humble himself for the good of the cause a la the eventual unveiling of the head-villian, yeah, Khan. His story need not be over in an alternate dimension--all that dismissive talk about how a new series of circumstances couldn't yield a great movie with Khan is more ridiculous than the proposition itself: that Khan shouldn't be thought of as the villian in STID.
