KHAN!!! – EW says the villain in STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS is Khan

After new images from J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness emerged today, one little photo caption has sparked renewed interest in the continuing debate over whether or not Benedict Cumberbatch’s character John Harrison is, in fact, Khan. Entertainment Weekly has had a slew of the Star Trek sequel’s images and poster reveals to date, so it’s a bit odd to think that this caption wasn’t cleared by someone in the know.

The Khan rumors have been floating around for a while now and this one headline is definitely not a confirmation, but it does throw fuel on the fire. In the most recent TV spot, Cumberbatch was recently heard to utter something along the lines of “I am better…at everything.” Since Khan is a genetically enhanced individual, this bit of dialogue is in line with the idea of Cumberbatch actually being Khan. Abrams has denied the existence of Khan in his film, but he’s not exactly the most reliable person when it comes to secrets he wants kept.
