Just who is Benedict Cumberbatch playing?
Is Kirk's new love interest Carol Marcus, Janice Rand or Christine Chapel?
It was clear when Alice Eve ("Men in Black 3") was cast in "Star Trek Into Darkness" she was meant to be a new love interest for someone on the Enterprise and likely none other than James T. Kirk (Chris Pine). The new preview clearly teases that possibility, but her actual character name still hasn't been revealed. If "Darkness" really is a "Wrath of Khan" twist could she a younger version of Dr. Carol Marcus (played by BiBi Besch in the original)? Or, is she a new incarnation of one of two characters from the classic TV series: Janice Rand (originally played by Grace Lee Whitney) or Christine Chapel (Majel Barrett Roddenberry, the voice of the ship's computer in the latest "Star Trek" film)? Our guess is Rand, what's yours?
