The U.S.S. Failwhale

Bitch please
I appear to be even more disappointed in J.J. Abrams than usual. First and foremost we did not need another motherfucking Wrath of Khan! What the hell is wrong with you?!

Secondly, if you are going to inflict this travesty upon audiences, maybe this would have been a good opportunity to find...I dunno...an actual Indian actor to play Khan Noonien Singh. And I say this as someone who thinks Benedict Cumberbatch could play the shark in Jaws.

Is there news up somewhere confirming ST2 is Wrath of Khan? My Google-Fu seems to be weak.

It may not be called Wrath of Khan, but IMDB and Wikipedia both think that Benedict Cumberbatch is playing Khan. Apparently there are leaked pictures somewhere, but I haven't seen them yet.

Wikipedia's one source is the only site with that claim I've been able to find -- and it's a rumor site which says only "multiple sources confirm" with nothing to back it up.

Crossing my fingers and hoping.

Seriously? Is this confirmed? Sigh. Why reboot a franchise if you're only going to do cover albums?

So, they're covering "Space Seed". Still sigh.

However, we may be lucky and this is Internet Rumor gone viral. Both IMDB and Wiki are known for putting up unconfirmed rumor.

Generally speaking, I leave having opinions about Star Trek-related things to people who have opinions about Star Trek, which I mostly don't. But I just wanted to say that "someone who thinks Benedict Cumberbatch could play the shark in Jaws" is my new favorite phrase of the moment.

Following this over on Tor.com, they seem to be back-and-forth about whether it is actually true. Villain, yes; but no actual confirmation of Khanberbatch.

I pray that the internet and I are wrong.
