My Star Trek 2 Villain Theory
My thoughts on who Benedict Cumberbatch might be playing in the as yet unnamed Star Trek sequel!
Ok, greetings my fellow CBMers! We've all heard the usual guesses- "Benedict Cumberbatch is khan, no he's gary mitchell!!! Mwahahaha!!!!" Well after much consideration and this was actually something I considered a few months back but anyway, this is actually a lesser known theory that's been floating around the geekosphere/internet for a while but the khan and gary rumors sadly relegated it into a black hole (pun intended)
Well, i am probably wrong but here goes nothing- Benedict Cumberbatch MIGHT be a klingon.
Now you are all probably thinking "WTF? HOW? KLINGON...HOW??" Benedict appears to be very human. But one theory has been that he could be a Klingon agent disguised as a human/starfleet officer. There was also a TOS episode where a klingon disguised himself as a human and he wore a shiny, silver jacket (i honestly cannot remember the episode name, my apologies) anyway...i seem to recall Benedict wearing a shiny silver jacket in some leaked photos we saw before from the movie...
Oh right, ^ THAT image lol.
One other thing to consider-
When Simon Pegg debunked the khan rumors (thank god) he specifically started by saying "It's not khan" hmmm..."It's?" Not "he?" Hmmm, well they ARE in space and klingons look set to play a major role in the film, maybe then...Benedict Cumberbatch's character is an alien? That is entirely possible, remember it is the future so surely some gene splicing or even some illusionary tricks can make a klingon appear human.
One last thing to consider- many "trusted sources" months ago I seem to.remember stated klingons would be the main adversaries. And as stated by the Star Trek 2 writers themselves, Nolan's "The Dark Knight" film inspired them, no doubt having a plot as rich and thick as having
klingon/human dual identities seems to be within the realm of Nolan.
So what do you think CBM? Could Benedict Cumberbatch be a klingon? Surely not khan since he was debunked already and Gary Mitchell having appeared in the IDW tie-in comics, we can exclude him from consideration.
