While praising the work of Benedict Cumberbatch, cast as a villain in Star Trek 2, Simon Pegg denies recent rumors about Cumberbatch’s role in the movie.
Details of that rumor and possible spoilers will be behind the cut.
Rumors had it that Cumberbatch had been cast as a rebooted Khan. “It’s not Khan,” said Pegg. “That’s a myth. Everyone’s saying it is, but it’s not.
“…I think people just want to have a scoop,” said Pegg. “It annoys me – it’s beyond the point to just ferret around for spoilers all the time to try to be the first to break them.
It just spoils the film. It masquerades as interest in the movie but really it’s just nosiness and impatience. You just want to say, ‘Oh f— off! Wait for the film!'”
