All eyes will be on J.J. Abrams‘ Star Trek Into Darkness this year, because after that film is done, he moves on to Star Wars Episode VII, leaving the third installment into unknown hands. While we may not know who the director of Star Trek III will be, we do know that Abrams will still have some input as he is still attached as a producer of the rebooted franchise.
So as we await to see if Star Trek Into Darkness can live up to its expectations, we are getting a number of new images from EW – who seem to confirm that the villain is Khan, but I’ll wait and see if this is all true and not some sort of clever way to get more hits. Check out these new images below.
The one image that stands out is the number of red shirts escorting the villain in question, played by Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch, to his holding cell. Given a red shirt’s life expectancy while on the job, we can probably assume that these people will most likely die. Other images include Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, Abrams and Alex Kurtzman, Zoe Saldana, and another one of Pine hanging on for dear life.
The film also stars Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, and Simon Pegg, all of which return to reprise their respective roles, and they will be joined by Cumberbatch, Peter Weller, Noel Clarke, and Alice Eve.
Star Trek Into Darkness opens in theaters on May 15th.
