One day after our own Vic Holtreman had a chance to check out the nine minute Star Trek Into Darkness prologue, Paramount Pictures has released the first official image from the highly anticipated sequel. While the image isn’t quite as revealing as the gallery of HD trailer screen grabs we collected from the Star Trek 2 trailer, it does put to rest a bit of speculation that followed in the wake of the the film’s Japanese trailer debut – specifically a shot that was reminiscent of the Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan finale.

Of course, for every mystery that we solve, a new one usually arises and the new image is no exception – begging the question: who is

Yeah I'm going with it's much more likely to be a fake name. I'm always kinda figuring that if he really WAS a totally new villain, they would have already told us who he was because there wouldn't be anything to keep secret in the first place. I'm still team "a mix of different villains" in my heart tho ngl.

I'm hoping your last line is true. If they made no effort to make him look or act or sound like the Khan we know, it stands to reason he's NOT the Khan we know and instead some kind of hybrid.

I'll still be mildly annoyed that they gave up a chance to have a nonwhite character in favor of yet ANOTHER blanquito, especially curdled-milk oppa over there, but not enraged like I'd be if he were actually Khan.
littlepunkryo 10th-Dec-2012 11:49 pm (UTC)
I feel exactly the same. I would take ANYTHING over straight Khan and I just can't bring myself to believe JJ is stupid enough to even try to redo Khan straight up and then whitewash him on top of that.

I'll believe nothing until I see a character description or hear it from someone who's seen the film.

starfleet boots look super comfortable. i want a pair.
evilgmbethy 10th-Dec-2012 11:34 pm (UTC)
ugh I seriously hate JJ Abrams and his stupid ~*mystery*~

he is such a fucking hack. I can't wait until he's bored with Star Trek and moves on to whatever other shiny mystery object he wants to peddle next and the franchise can go back to something substantive.
kwikimart 10th-Dec-2012 11:50 pm (UTC)
Idec about Star Trek like that but I 100% co-sign what you said about JJ.
He's so annoying.
evilgmbethy 11th-Dec-2012 12:13 am (UTC)
bitter forever about Alias tbh

That seems to imply that Cumcrymeariver is definitely playing Khan : /

If it's Khan, that's heinous whitewashing and they need to diaf

If it's not, they need to fucking quash the Khan rumors and stop encouraging them because it's playing around with the concept of heinous whitewashing like it's nbd.

Either way, they need to stop. It's bad enough Cumberballs and his fangirls are invading the fandom. Him being Khan would ruin the sequel for me. The concept is already harshing my squee, waiting for it.
yurasama_love 10th-Dec-2012 11:37 pm (UTC)
I vaguely remember JJ saying he definitely wasn't Khan, but the internet keeps speculating that he is Khan, so things get all mixed up.
wauwy 10th-Dec-2012 11:44 pm (UTC)
JJ is known for this bullshit teasing and trolling though.
evilgmbethy 10th-Dec-2012 11:42 pm (UTC)
yeah at this point, it's definitely not cool either way

not like JJ Abrams gives the first fuck, he is the definition of so far up his own ass that he's grown to love the stink of his shit
lostinshalott 11th-Dec-2012 12:03 am (UTC)
ia if he's Khan I will never forgive JJ for this seriously I will not FORGIVE.
isuspectnargels 10th-Dec-2012 11:35 pm (UTC)
I honestly couldn't give a fuck if he created an entirely new villain cos it's a reboot series, not a remake.

but I still think it's a fake name.

I hate those lens flares the look so fucking obnoxious and out of place in a movie that isn't in any way realistic.
They work better in more naturalistic films not a film about a space crew and aliens.
ectypes 11th-Dec-2012 12:35 am (UTC)
i feel totally opposite. they literally only belong in sci-fi films.

_scarlett_icons 10th-Dec-2012 11:47 pm (UTC)
It wouldn't make sense if he was Khan.
I'd say he's Gary Mitchell.
kwikimart 10th-Dec-2012 11:48 pm (UTC)
I know who he's playing

Clearly some kind of reptile creature, he doesn't have the range to play anything past that.

A N Y W A Y now I've got that joke out, I am looking forward to this film. EXCEPT if he is playing Khan.
Cumberiddlemethisbatman wouldn't even have the faintest idea why that would be an offensive thing for him to do. Zoe Saldana, that dumbass will be his loudest supporter if there's backlash.
JJ Abrams better not do this shit.

Wish movies would stop using Inception sounding music in the trailers
ladysherlock 10th-Dec-2012 11:54 pm (UTC)
a Gorn
kwikimart 11th-Dec-2012 12:04 am (UTC)
That would be some hilarious casting!
I'd get banned from ONTD for 'making too many reptile jokes' and laughing at them myself.
Oh my god I really want this now
smashmortion 11th-Dec-2012 02:42 am (UTC)
lmfao I love the Gorn
stridulum 10th-Dec-2012 11:49 pm (UTC)
still convinced he's gary mitchell but nice try jj.
this trailer needs less cumberbatch and more urban imo
saltireflower 10th-Dec-2012 11:51 pm (UTC)
I think he's Gary Mitchell as well.
wicked_jade 10th-Dec-2012 11:55 pm (UTC)
Everything needs more Urban, lbr. I would watch a whole trilogy of Bones just grumping his way around the Enterprise.
rosewood39 11th-Dec-2012 03:01 am (UTC)
I agree, with Scotty cracking jokes.
baglady25 11th-Dec-2012 05:12 am (UTC)
Can someone make this happen please?
isuspectnargels 11th-Dec-2012 12:04 am (UTC)
like I said last time, an entire movie dedicated to Bones and just Bones and a mint julep and a bourbon for everyone in the audience.
hemsworth 11th-Dec-2012 02:34 am (UTC)
yeah i'm not letting any of these news sway me from me saying he's gary mitchell
calandrinon 10th-Dec-2012 11:51 pm (UTC)
Jesus fuck, at this rate, by May we'll have gone through everything from KHAAAAN/Gary Mitchell to Snow White and the Seven Mutant Ensigns. Give it a rest, JJ. Everybody is already excited; by May they'll hate you and your damn reboot sequel and/or you'll blow up people's expectations so much there's no way you'll be able to deliver.

edit: also, this hoopla abt BC's character does not bode well for the plot... why aren't there any teasers about that? Is it b/c it's stock, totally predictable and has nothing to do with what ST was all about? :\ Seriously, that plot synopsis is awful.

I don't care what his name is, I am just so excited to see him on the big screen. He looks so yummy in the trailer and pictures! My body is SO READY!!
nabuch 11th-Dec-2012 12:01 am (UTC)
I am wondering who will be more popular... no, scratch this, who will be more critically acclaimed and successful at the box office: him or Hiddleston?
kwikimart 11th-Dec-2012 12:07 am (UTC)
There is a single tear running down my face rn at this comment jsyk
meredydd 11th-Dec-2012 12:14 am (UTC)
I'm legit hoping he slows down a bit though...he's in everything lately or seems to be and I'm thinking he's going to burn himself out soon and go all weird and Russell Crow for a while.
unlocked1111 11th-Dec-2012 12:15 am (UTC)
2013 is definitely his year, and speaking of awards, goldderby.com has him at number one for the golden globes, and with parade's end airing on hbo next year he'll be eligible for another emmy nom.
ebenetwo 11th-Dec-2012 12:47 am (UTC)
does this mean i have to put up with him talking about how much he wants a baby over and over again -_-
evilgmbethy 11th-Dec-2012 12:49 am (UTC)
I promise I will continue to loathe both him and the terribad reboots
