Thoughts on some SPOILERs from ID

Doesn't anyone else think it's funny that because of all the hoopla surrounding Cumberbatch's character that they were able to sneak in Spock Prime and kill Kirk without any word getting out about those two major points?

Actually, many assumed there was a good chance Spock Prime would be in it. Thanks to some tweets and him being spotted on set at some point if I remember correctly.
As for Kirk's kill, people have speculated about it happening ever since the first trailer with the hands on glass scene appeared.

Maybe it was just me then. I never saw the Tweets you mentioned.

If it makes you happy to think you're not alone, I didn't think Cumberbatch was going to be Khan, I never even considered that Kirk would die, and didn't think we'd be lucky enough to see Nimoy on screen again.
I also thought it was going to be Pike dying in the reaction chamber - somehow thought it would be fitting considering he was severely damaged by radiation in TOS.

My only redemption was that I didn't ever think it was the Enterprise crashing into the buildings from the trailer. I knew it had to be another ship.

But overall Abrams you defeated my speculation again.

The film was nothing like what I had pieced together in my head from the trailers. There's actually another thread complaining about that, but I was thrilled to see so much unexpected stuff!
