# 1 From Sherlock to Khan?

Benedict Cumberbatch, who stars as Conan Doyle’s supersleuth in the BBC’s highly original series Sherlock, has signed on to play the major villain in J.J. Abram’s second Star Trek film. Many observers feel that it is Cumberbatch (and the writers of the cleverly updated Sherlock TV series) who have produced the most interesting and inspired contemporary version of Holmes, not Robert Downey, Jr. and Guy Ritchie in their series of expensive and popular films]

I don't get Khan being in the reboot at all. What made TWOK so great was that there was a history between Khan and Kirk. In this reboot there is NO history, unless this is going to be a 2 hour version of "Space Seed" from TOS, which, if they use the right writer, could be amazing.

if khan appears it will be space seed or at least the alternate version re-imagining of it. perhaps the klingons find the ship first, or the romulans, perhaps khan takes control of the enterprise instead of getting stuck on ceti alpha 5 and goes on a rampage. perhaps its something more subtle and completely different to what we all think might happen. khan could play a minor part in this film, biding his time and be a more central character in the third film.

its taking an iconic villain and giving it a fresh perspective. of course he may not even be playing khan. his role has not been confirmed.

Cumberbatch has . . . curious facial features, IMO.

Has he appeared in anything that we Yanks might have been likely to see over here in the Colonies?

Face is not strong enough. Khan had a omgsmexy face and killer body. Mix that with the mannerisms and win. Take either away and you get any JJ Trek character, only acceptable but in no way living up to the namesake.
