Is it just me, or does it seem like it was forever ago that J.J. Abrams Star Trek came out?  It was a great movie, and we’ve all been anxiously waiting for May 13th, 2013 to get here.  Now I must admit, I was never a big Star Trek fan.  I fell more on the Star Wars side of the Geek spectrum.  But what Abrams did with the first film made me a fan, and I will be there opening day when Star Trek Into Darkness hits theaters.

One of the most exciting things about this new installment to the series is the addition of Benedict Cumberbatch as John Harrison.  However, today it was reported that Entertainment Weekly may have inadvertently leaked that Cumberbatch is playing Khan, which has been repeatedly denied in the past.  I personally think it would be awesome if it were true.  Cumberbatch is perfect for the tyrannical Khan.  I think I may be slightly disappointed now if it turns out he’s not playing Khan.

Entertainment Weekly also published these new photos from Star Trek Into Darkness:
