Khan Me Maybe

In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

Some people are already pissed just with this teaser trailer saying that there’s no substance, it’s all just action, and they pretty much want Kirk and Spock to make love in the trailer. I say slow your roll there nerds, just a teaser. JJ will have the substance, he may not explain everything you’d like (f!@#$% Lost), but he’ll put out something worth while. Also the rumors can be put to rest, Khan will definitely be the villain…hence my title, hehe.

Update: I guess when I say it’s clearly Khan, I’m stating that in my own opinion from the trailer. Others think there’s a very good chance it could be Gary Mitchell as well since he’s seen wearing a Star Fleet uniform. Sound off your thoughts in the comments.

    They originally wanted to cast Benicio Del Toro as Khan…but he refused.

    I have a hunch it won’t be Khan…”one man weapon of mass destruction” is a hard description to fill as a villain in the Star Trek universe, but Khan IS a genetically engineered superhuman. Then again, Gary Mitchell gains ESP after an accident and has the power to move things with his mind…the Star Fleet uniform is a compelling argument for Gary Mitchell to be the villain.

    Yea the more I’ve read on it today, the more I’m leaning towards Mitchell. I don’t know much about the character, but I’ve read a bunch that he tries to throw a ‘blonde’ in Kirk’s way (who in the past he almost married) to throw him off and in the trailer we see a new blonde character who Kirk does seem infatuated with. Small yes, but an easter egg maybe as well.
