New image from Star Trek Into Darkness
Will it tell us what we want to know?
A new image from Star Trek Into Darkness features Spock (Zachary Quinto) and Kirk (Chris Pine) interrogating Benedict Cumberbatch’s villain behind a glass screen. Paramount has named Cumberbatch’s character as John Harrison, though this could be a pseudonym or placeholder for the time being. What we do know about Harrison is that he has an appetite for destruction and has a history with the crew as he is Starfleet (or possibly ex-Starfleet now). Fans of summer blockbusters may be having flashbacks to the recent imprisonment of The Avengers’ Loki. Will Harrison be able to wreak havoc from his prison cell?


In other Star Trek Into Darkness news, Alice Eve has been officially attached to the project. Again, we are going to verge into potential spoiler territory based on her character’s history. Eve will be playing the role of Carol Marcus, who is credited with the creation of the Genesis Device. This device allowed previously uninhabitable planets to be transformed into something that supported human life. Marcus also gave birth to James T. Kirk's son, David Marcus. She previously appeared in Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan. This could be another indication that Cumberbatch is actually Khan despite the name that he has been assigned.

Star Trek Into Darkness is directed by J.J. Abrams and co-stars Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana and Anton Yelchin. It will open in cinemas on May 17th, 2013.
