Karl Urban reveals Benedict Cumberbatch's role in 'Star Trek 2'
But is the new Bones McCoy telling the truth?
Did we just find out which villain Benedict Cumberbatch is playing in "Star Trek 2"?
According to a report on UK website SFX, "Trek" co-star Karl Urban had this to say about working with Cumberbatch: “He’s awesome, he’s a great addition, and I think his Gary Mitchell is going to be exemplary.”
"Trek" fans know Gary Mitchell from the original series episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before": He was a Starfleet Academy buddy of Kirk's who wound up going mental with god-like powers.
Given director J.J. Abrams' infamous secrecy and fans' understandable curiosity about what "Trek 2" has to offer, any potential "leak" has to be treated with some degree of skepticism. Is the information intended to reveal a new tidbit or intentionally mislead the fans? Abrams himself recently slipped a sequel Easter egg into a taped piece for the MTV Movie Awards.
Urban's comment came during a promotional tour for his upcoming sci-fi action movie "Dredd." It's possible he slipped up and said something he shouldn't have. Or it's possible he knew exactly what he was doing.
"Star Trek 2" opens May 17, 2013.
