POLL: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Villain. Who Is Benedict Cumberbatch Playing?

POLL: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Villain. Who Is Benedict Cumberbatch Playing?

The debate is going strong after a domestic and international teaser trailer for JJ Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness was released. Some say Cumberbatch is playing Gary Mitchell while other says he's surely Khan. Who do you think it is?



Some people say the fact that Cumberbatch is in a Star Fleet uniform is proof that he's Gary Mitchell. Others point to the fact that Khan was one of several genetically engineered 'supermen' which would account for the feats of prowess on display in the the trailer. Maybe we'll get a definitive answer in the 9-minute preview before The Hobbit. One thing's for sure, in an age where most of The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers were spoiled before their release, it's absolutely amazing that details for the Star Trek sequel have been kept under wraps for this long.




In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.

With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
