STAR TREK 2 (Whose the villain??)


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.
Is Cumberbatch playing Gary Mitchell??

So it would seem that someone is misleading us but who? You would you want the villain to be Khan or Mitchell?? Let us know and comment below!
