Benedict Cumberbatch Defends J.J. Abrams' STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS 'Khan' Secrecy

Yesterday, Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams talked about why he tried so hard to keep the fact that 'John Harrison' was in fact 'Khan' a secret, and now Benedict Cumberbatch has spoken out in defence of the filmmaker's decision. Hit the jump to check it out!

Unfortunately, some people were determined to spoil the true identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's 'John Harrison' before the release of Star Trek Into Darkness, robbing the big reveal in the movie of the impact it should have had. Yesterday, director J.J. Abrams (who is currently hard at work on Star Wars Episode VII pre-production) said that he actually regretted the decision in hindsight, but The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and Sherlock star who played the villain has now spoken out in his defence. Check out the video interview below and sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!
