Trek Villain Not Khan?
It has been rumoured for sometime Khan will be the villain in the next J.J. Abram’s Trek movie.
While chatting with SFX (A UK science fiction magazine.), Karl Urban — a.k.a. Dr. McCoy — said the following about Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the film’s heavy: “He’s awesome, he’s a great addition, and I think his Gary Mitchell is going to be exemplary.”
For those not in the know and have not seen the original Star Trek series. Gary Mitchell Played by Gary Lockwood, appeared in the episode “Where No Man Has Gone Before”. Here he is a Starfleet office and close friend of Captain Kirk. He is endowed with god-like powers and turned bad.
IF Mitchell is the villain his relationship with Kirk would make for a great foundation to their inevitable conflict.
