Earlier this week, we found out that Benedict Cumberbatch is playing John Harrison in next summer’s Star Trek Into Darkness. And while this could be ruse by Paramount to keep us from knowing the character’s identity before opening day, that doesn’t mean the Batch isn’t above teasing us a bit.
Speaking to MTV, the Batch teased some details about the character.
“He’s a terrorist; he operates as a terrorist. He has extraordinary physical powers, but also mental powers. He can sow an idea, which is as powerful as gunshots or close-hand combat, which he’s masterful in. He tears into the fabric of both the world and the Enterprise family, and he leaves behind him a trail of devastation. It’s quite exciting to watch,” he says. ”"He has an interesting relationship with Kirk, and with Spock in a way. He very much plays them off against each other. There’s an element of shadow to him and Kirk.”
It still sounds a LOT like this could be Gary Mitchell. We’ll find out next summer….
