Star Trek 2 news has been pretty hush as of late, with J.J. Abrams keeping a tight lid on just about everything minus actual set photos that have leaked.
One thing that seems to be for sure is the villain. Most thought Benedict Cumberbatch‘s character was that of the infamous Khan, but co-star Simon Pegg is firmly suggesting the opposite.
Here’s what he had to say in regards to Cumberbatch playing Khan (via Telegraph):
“It’s not Khan,” replies Pegg, annoyed. “That’s a myth. Everyone’s saying it is, but it’s not … I think people just want to have a scoop. It annoys me – it’s beyond the point to just ferret around for spoilers all the time to try to be the first to break them … It just spoils the film … It masquerades as interest in the movie but really it’s just nosiness and impatience. You just want to say, ‘Oh f— off! Wait for the film!’”
So there have it. Do you think Cumberbatch is playing an entirely new character or possibly someone else from the Trek universe?
