In other Star Trek 2 news, a Leonard Nimoy return may be in the cards; word on Benedict Cumberbatch‘s role emerges; and news on the latest shooting location for the movie is revealed.
Before reading further, know that some of the news below is rumor and contains spoilers.
In the new photos, Quinto is shown grimacing; either scowling or getting ready to sneeze.
The actor is wearing a black mock turtleneck shirt, on which can be seen a faint image of the Starfleet emblem. His slacks are gray and appear to be regular clothes. It may be that he is only wearing a uniform shirt due to needing to have that on before having his makeup done.
In other Star Trek 2 Spock news, a comment by Leonard Nimoy with CNN’s Jason Carroll has Star Trek fans abuzz speculating as to whether the original Spock will return for a cameo.
“…we were talking about the new Star Trek movie,” said Carroll. “It was great; you did a great job in it. And we were just about talking about that just before … will you be in another Star Trek movie?”
“Uhh, we’re talking,” replied Nimoy. “We’re talking.”
