"Star Trek Into Darkness" Spumors: Alice Eve's Character Revealed?

Coming Soon contributor Silas Lesnick appears to have been to some kind of Star Trek Into Darkness press event earlier today. Rather than saving up all of the juice for a full report after the session was wrapped, Lesnick was tweeting as he went along.

Alice Eve’s Star Trek Into Darkness character revealed… She’s playing Carol Marcus!

And here’s Marcus’ entry in the StarTrek.com database:
Molecular biologist made famous in 2285 by her planet development process, Project Genesis. In the 2260′s a relationship with James T. Kirk produced her son, David.

This casting would seem to mean there’s a pretty good chance of Eve sticking around for subsequent sequels though, of course, we’re in a new timeline now. Maybe there’s going to be no relationship with Kirk, or at least no David.

What a poignant flutter of the butterfly’s wings that digression could be.

There are already complaints in social media that revealing this information is some kind of spoiler. I don’t think, however, that Marcus’ identity is going to be a mystery in the film, or even in subsequent trailers.

And then, at the same time, there are even folk expressing disbelief, thinking that this must be some kind of misdirect by the moustache-fiddling master of illusion himself, JJ Abrams. Also poppycock.

She’s Carol Marcus. False, non-mystery dispersed. Next!
