- STAR TREK 2 VILLAIN IDENTITY CRISES?!
Everyone who was expecting to see Khan in Star Trek 2 are in for a bit of disappointment, as a new report indicates that the film might feature an entirely different villain, Variety reports.
|Who is Benedict Cumberbatch playing in Star Trek 2??|
While chatting with SFX, Karl Urban, who plays Dr. McCoy in the film, said the following about Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the film's antagonist: “He’s awesome, he’s a great addition, and I think his Gary Mitchell is going to be exemplary.”
For the non-Trekkies out there, Mitchell was a character in the very first Captain Kirk episode of Star Trek. Played by Gary Lockwood, he was a Starfleet officer and close friend of Kirk's who was -- spoilers for an almost half-century old TV episode -- endowed with god-like powers and turned bad. The segment was called "Where No Man Has Gone Before" and it's truly one of the great Star Trek stories.
Roberto Orci, who co-wrote Star Trek 2, recently named several characters who would not be in the film, and Mitchell was one of them.
