Holy fudge monkeys, Batman! Benedict Cumberbatch's Star Trek 2 character finally revealed

Gary Mitchell, Kirk's broheim from Starfleet Academy. Mitchell appeared in only one episode of Star Trek, Where No Man Has Gone Before. In it, he gains god-like powers after the Enterprise passes through the galactic barrier. Basically, J. J. Abrams is adapting an entire episode from The Original Series into a movie.

Big credit goes to Karl Urban (Leonard McCoy) for accidentally revealing this during an interview with SFX Magazine. I have no problem whatsoever with Abrams adapting more TOS episodes to the big screen. Keep going.

  1. Awesomesauce! "Where No Man Has Gone Before" has always been one of my favorite TOS episodes and I like what Abrams did with the reboot, so I'm confident that Star Trek II will be good.
