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.


About liamfoley63

I was born in 1963 and that is relevant to my development of my love for science-fiction and fantasy movies, comic books, superheroes and many other things attributed to Nerd culture. In the 60s I watched all the Saturday afternoon Godzilla and monster movies I could take. In the 70s I became hooked on Star Trek. I am also an artist (in my own mind at least) and a musician. I enjoy learning about physics, astrophysics, chemistry and earth silences such as meteorology, anthropology, paleontology. When I reached my late 30s I began to re-explore my nerd roots. I reconnected with my love of science fiction and fantasy movies along with the other science related topics. For this blog I will focus on movie and TV reviews for science fiction and fantasy and post my thoughts on up coming movies. I will also include some fun facts from the various sciences I enjoy along with weather facts and bits from royalty and history. What I will not discuss is religion and politics. I am married to a beautiful woman named Sarah and have a lovely daughter named Danielle.
