    i wonder if they don't kill off John Harrison / Khan in this one, if he'll take a backseat in the third movie like Jonathan Crane / The Scarecrow did in The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.

    Great point about the foreshadowing. You're quite right that JJ set up Khan's Miracle Blood as being able to work wonders at the beginning of the film.

    I'm sort of spooked by what happened in Phantom Menace, when mitochondria came out of nowhere.

    Eh, I kinda like that they aren't killing him, if that's true. The villain usually dies and I like this being left open. It just leads to all kinds of possibilities that aren't the usual cliches.

    Are you kidding. Cumberbatch puts asses in seats.

    STXIII will be the Apocalypse Now ripoff, where Kirk has to go after Khan and his renegade band of augment guerillas. JJ will turn Khan into an anti-hero. Watch and see if I'm not right.

    Khan as an heroic figure in his own right has a lot of appeal. It somewhat restores him to his "Space Seed" persona.

    for a moment i kinda forgot about that. i've been so focused on the trailers and promotional material for into darkness. like i said to somebody on another forum. this movie to me is like the dark knight of movies for me. i have looked forward to this one since i saw the reboot back in 2009. can't wait to see it with my dad. both this and star wars.

    Afraid so. Now we'll get shit stories, wooden acting, and lens flares.

    Lens flares will improve it by 20 percent.

    I actually don't mind the flares any more. I get his obsession with it. It feels like a shiny new toy.

    I kinda like the flares.

    Speaking as someone who's done pro photo editing, making something "too real" sometimes makes something seem less real. Little touches of artistic license though can trick the subconscious brain into seeing "awesome movie" and not "ugly fake, doesn't look like real life".

    I asked this earlier on IMDB. somebody answered that they weren't distracting but present. I just think we're all getting used to them! Horrors!

    I wonder if Kurtzman and Orci are going to write Star Wars 7. JJ obviously loves them.
