Maybe. During an interview with SFX magazine, Karl Urban seems to have revealed the name of Cumberbatch's Star Trek 2 villain.
When asked about Cumberbatch, Urban said, "He's awesome, he's a great addition, and I think his Gary Mitchell is going to be exemplary."
Yep. Gary Mitchell. For anyone who doesn't know, Gary Mitchell is a character from Star Trek's second pilot episode, "Where No Man has Gone Before." An old Starfleet Academy friend of Kirk's, Gary Mitchell became an insane psychic with god-like powers after the Enterprise tried to cross the Great Barrier at the edge of the galaxy.
Of course Urban could just be trolling us and mentioning a character that isn't even in the movie. It sounds like something J.J. Abrams would have someone do. What do you think? Would you like to see Gary Mitchell in the new movie? If not, what villain would you prefer?
