How about a new twist? Janice Rand discovers what Kirk said about her on Twitter and travels back in time to get him to look at her legs?

Then they can remake TWOK and all their three movies will have used Khan in one way or the other, once RomuKhan and twice NuKhan. And the crowd will still believe all the mumbo-jumbo about freeing themselves from the shackles of continuity and telling fresh, new stories.

Even if it ain't gonna happen, the very fact that they think about using Khan (again!) tells me more than I want to know.
Until the writers 100% confirm his presence I'll treat it with the same 'it's a rumour' attitude that most things at this stage will likely prove to be.

But....

Conversely, since so many fans seem to also want Khan rehashed directly that also gives a glimpse into the mindset of some of the fanbase and clearly all they wish is their favourite episodes remade with a big budget. Apparently some fans don't actually want fresh, new stories either.

The numbing laziness works both ways. And often comes from places other than the writers.

what a pointless fu*king question. I don't think it will be as good as , or , better than than the original.

I wonder how you got that impression. To me it seems 99% of the fans are against using Khan.

Most seem to bring it up only to express how much it would suck.
Obviously Omegaman started this thread to provoke that kind of reaction.

I don't care about Khan fans who ask the writers again and again whether they redo Khan, but the very fact that the writers consider it is fairly strange. They just did RomuKhan and now they consider to do Khan again. Do they really think were are so dumb?
Or they just lie and appease the "Khanonites" by claiming to consider it. Which would be equally disgusting.

No, that's not quite true - Khan has been getting bandied about as a possibility ever since the new universe was revealed and it was not all from the writers.

Or they could be employing mis-direction while working on whatever it is they wind up doing. Considering something and ending up doing it is very different.

If we take a look at past films in the series there are mountains of ideas, intentions, characters and more that were actively considered but never came to pass in the final film.

Same will apply here - which might well mean Khan. But equally might well not.

Yep, might be just a polite way of saying "This is top-secret and none of your concern until were are finished and sold the script to the studio. And even then we won't tell you everything you wanna know, you gotta pay 8 bucks if you wanna see our story."
