J.J. Abrams Reveals One Of The Alternate Titles For STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS

J.J. Abrams Reveals One Of The Alternate Titles For STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS

Abrams has already been quizzed about which other titles were considered for the sequel, and while he admitted they did have other ideas, up until now he was hesitant to reveal any. Find out what the movie might have been titled after the jump.

Quite a few people were surprised when the full title for "Star Trek 2" was revealed to be Star Trek Into Darkness. I think many were expecting the usual Star Trek: Insert Generic Subtitle Here. But it seems that was very nearly the case, as director J.J. Abrams reveals to MTV:

"There's an intimidating giant black ship in this thing called the 'USS Vengeance.' We talked about that word, vengeance," says director J.J. Abrams about alternate "Star Trek" titles.

Star Trek: Vengeance. I would have immediately hated it -- I'll take a trek into darkness over that any day! What do you guys think? Hopefully we'll get to hear a few more rejected titles at some point.

A bit of trivia:

TREK II was originally VENGEANCE OF KHAN, but it was changed because of REVENGE OF THE JEDI (which, of course, also eventually changed its title).

@NoAssemblyReqd - awesome. Wizards was going to be called War Wizards, but george lucas saw to it that bakshi had War removed for obvious reasons

I read somewhere Lindelof liked the title 'Star Trek: Transformers 4' because it was available at the time.

sounds fine to me

Star Trek Vengence sounds pretty good; better than Into Darkness; ID sounds like a mini series on the SyFy channel

Star Trek: Revenge of the Fallen actually works with the story. I guess you could say they/he was fallen.

Star Trek: revenge of the fallen franchise... Is more like it.

Returning JJ Abrams as "Darth Fixthis" making it much more like Star Wars than any Star Trek fan would like to admit...

The names of the previous movies were terrible. Just "Star Trek" with some random word. 'Nemesis', 'Insurrections' etc... Bollocks. Star Trek Into Darkness is much better. Keep on going down that route, JJ.

Hope he does the next too. And that everyone will be back for many more. I could watch this cast as these characters for years to come.
