This time, Pegg isn’t the only Brit in the world of Starfleet. Benedict Cumberbatch has been cast as a villain. Pegg is full of praise for Cumberbatch’s baddy, whom he describes as “not just another disgruntled alien. It’s a really interesting… sort of… thing,” he squirms….
I didn’t think so. It was a RUMOR, and suddenly everyone was convinced of it, and then there was all this hate about it, and Tumblr exploded. But this makes so much more sense. I mean, why would they change a character THAT MUCH? I mean, his outfit, his origin, his place in the timeline? It just wouldn’t make sense. All that was said was “villain,” but as far as I know, Khan was NEVER specified.
