It has to be Mitchell.
On the topic of villian, Peter Weller plays a villian in the movie according to this, http://badassdigest.com/2011/12/07/p...y-be-revealed/
He could be a Talosian projecting to the crew an illusion, that would still need to be filmed.
If the only still of Vina from 'The Cage' had been released as the one where she has the picnic with Pike, that illusion still had to be filmed even though the characters true appearance was very different.
