Y el villano de STAR TREK 2 será…

Al parecer por fin ya confirmaron el rumor de quien será el villano de Star Trek 2. El actor Benedict Cumberbatch será el famoso villano Khan.

TrekMovie has reportedly confirmed the rumor that Benedict Cumberbatch’s villainous role is none other than Khan, the genetically engineered space tyrant.  Originally played by Ricardo Montalban, Khan was rumored to be the sequel’s villain when Abrams was auditioning Latino talkent like Benicio del Toro; the role ultimately went to Cumberbatch after was was called a “very powerful audition.” The site also reports that although Khan will be the antagonist in the sequel, the plot will not revolve around the original Star Trek series episode, “Space Seed,” where Starfleet first encountered Khan.

The other minor spoilers in the film include the return of Leonard Nimoy as Spock Prime, a fact that the actor himself revealed during an interview with CNN and a recent tweet.  Nimoy’s work for the film is reportedly complete, which will make Star Trek 2 his eighth film appearance in the series (William Shatner is next at seven).  Lastly, the Klingons might be making an appearance in the Star Trek sequel.  The adversaries were left on the cutting room floor in the original, but are reportedly too vital to the storyline to be left behind this time.
