Benedict Cumberbatch may or may not be playing a character named Khan in J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” sequel, “Star Trek Into Darkness”. Apparently Abrams insists on not saying either/or. Or if he has answered this question, I didn’t catch it. Not that it matters, mind you. Batch sure sounds like Khan, especially in this new motion poster for the upcoming flick. Check it out, check it outers.
(Sorry about the poster playing automatically. I have no control over that.)
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.
