Simon Pegg reports Khan is not the villain in the new movie
There was rumor floating around the internet that Benedict Cumberbatch was playing Star Trek’s iconic villain, Khan, in the Star Trek movie due out next summer. Yesterday, Simon Pegg, who plays Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott, in the new movie has reported that Cumberbatch is NOT playing Khan. There were even reports at one time that there is not going to be a conventional villain in this new movie.
I was open minded about Cumberbatch being Khan and thought he could pull it off. However, I must admit I am feeling a slight bit of relief that it isn’t true. Star Trek and the new Superman movie are the two movies I am looking forward to the most for next year. When Star Trek came out in 2009 there had been many rumors that proved false. So, I think I will take all rumors with a big grain of salt.
