My BFF John DeVore is in town and we just had breakfast, and like the two nerds we are, we spent a good portion of our time together discussing the upcoming movie “Star Trek Into Darkness.”
“Have we learned anymore about who Cumbersnatch is playing?” JDV asked.
“Nope, I think it’s still up in the air,” I said, shaking my head.
“God, this is getting annoying,” he said, but the truth is that we’re both frothing at the mouth with anticipation. Well, following breakfast (I had a croque madame, he had some sort of baked eggs and lentils thing), we came to my office and discovered that a new trailer for the movie had been posted online. Perhaps we would get answers while our food digested! We pressed play.
Alas, this trailer, while seriously exciting to the point where I felt almost amorous, does little to tell us who Benedict Cumberbatch is playing, though the character is definitely closely affiliated with Starfleet, though there are those nerds on the internet who still insist he’s somehow associated with Khan. This trailer does not seem to present any additional clues. However, there are some intriguing moments! Alice Eve in her underwear as Carol Marcus! Bones looking sexier than I could have ever anticipated! And most importantly, Kirk wearing what looks to be an ADMIRAL’S UNIFORM. What does it all meannnnn? Fellow Trekkies — I know you’re out there — share your theories in the comments.
