New image from Star Trek Into Darkness

And Benedict Cumberbatch and Alice Eve's characters have been given names

[Click on the image to see it in hi-res]

Star Trek Into Darkness has released a new image online in which Spock (Zachary Quinto) and Kirk (Chris Pine) can be seen interrogating Benedict Cumberbatch’s villain from behind a glass screen.

It looks like Starfleet favour the same kind of glass-fronted holding cells as S.H.I.E.L.D. do, although hopefully Cumberbatch’s character won’t be able to do quite as much damage as Loki managed from his.

We still don’t know very much about Cumberbatch’s character’s motivations (despite a very obvious appetite for destruction), but what we do know is that he is Starfleet (or ex-Starfleet) and he has a history with the crew.

Paramount has now named the character as John Harrison, although whether or not that turns out to be a red-herring pseudonym remains to be seen. Interestingly, Alice Eve has also been named as Carol Marcus, a character older Trek fans will remember from Star Trek: The Wrath Of Khan, eventually giving birth to Kirk’s son.

Directed by J.J. Abrams and co-starring Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana and Anton Yelchin, Star Trek Into Darkness will open in the UK on 17 May 2013.

      He has history with the crew? i take it this film is set significantly after the other one then? the crew barely have history with each other! High hopes for this but please stop with the promotions stuff for it-by the time it comes out we'll know everything about it and the film will disappoint. Example-he's in a glass hulk cage so he has to escape. Will it be via Dumb Guard or exploding Wotsit?

      2013 will be Cumberbatch's year with this and The 2nd Hobbit.
