A new image and information released by Paramount Pictures today reveals the character played by Benedict Cumberbatch in Star Trek into Darkness.
The image and name will be behind to cut, so that those avoiding spoilers will stay spoiler-free.
According to Paramount, Cumberbatch will be playing John Harrison. Could this be the “Harrison” who served under James T. Kirk and was seen in episodes such as Space Seed, where he lost consciousness after being deprived of oxygen?
That would tie in with earlier information that some Wrath of Khan music will be in the movie and the “hands to the glass” moment echoing the Kirk-Spock scene in the Wrath of Khan.
Time will tell.
