Rumors have swirled around the Internet regarding the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch‘s villain, and one site claims to have the answer as to John Harrison’s true identity.
Spoilers are behind the cut.
According to Shockya, which claims “trusted sources,” the villain is indeed Khan, as many have speculated over the past few months. “He is called John Harrison at points in the film, but during a key scene where Harrison is held prisoner on the Enterprise, he does reveal to Kirk and crew that his true identity is Khan,” said Shockya.
In addition to that bit of information, supposedly the famous reactor scene in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan will be referenced in the new movie, but with a “reverse spin” put on the scene.
Treat this as a rumor, and of course, everything is denied by Paramount, and by various actors in the movie.
