Today, we have yet another sign that the villain (Benedict Cumberbatch) in Star Trek Into Darkness will probably be Khan. While it was reported yesterday that the villain’s name was “John Harrison“, it’s doubtful that’s the character’s real name. We also know that the footage that was shown to journalists had various cues like bits from Michael Giacchino‘s score playing off the music from Wrath of Khan, and the Japanese trailer has a very familiar visual at the end. Last night, at a press event for the movie we learned that Alice Eve will play Carol Marcus. If the name sounds familiar it should, Carol Marcus was a character in Wrath of Khan. Played by Bibi Besch, the character invented the Genesis Device, and she was romantically linked with Kirk. Who knows if the new alternate timeline will mimic the original timeline, but with all the references to Wrath of Khan, how can Cumberbatch not be the great Khan Noonien Singh?

Star Trek: Into Darkness also stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Peter Weller, and Noel Clarke. Star Trek Into Darkness opens in 3D on May 17, 2013.

Official synopsis for Star Trek: Into Darkness;

In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
