We’ve known for a while now that Benedict Cumberbatch was playing the villain in J.J. Abrams highly-anticipated Star Trek Into Darkness. However, we haven’t been made aware who the character actually is that Cumberbatch was playing.
Rumors were always circulating that the actor would be playing the role of Khan. However, the studio made rebuttals saying the character was actually “John Harrison”. Sounds like a cover-up to me and still doesn’t explain who he is exactly or his purpose. Well now that has changed.
WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD!!
Due to an early review, it has finally been revealed just who “John Harrison” is. As suspected, Benedict is actually playing Khan.
Benedict Cumberbatch is playing Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness. All that bullshit of him not being Khan and really “John Harrison” was just a cover to hide the truth from moviegoers. Oh, he does go by “John Harrison” in the movie…but that’s not his real name. He reveals his name to Kirk later in the movie.
So, looks like fans were right all along and Abrams and company were just pulling our legs and trying to be all secret (as Abrams does).
