At first I was not very keen of them using Khan, but the more negative reactions I read the more I begin to like the idea.
The riskier the road, the greater the profit.

Some interesting comments on this thread.

So who thinks JJ could or could not possibly blend "Space Seed" and "The Wrath of Khan" into one movie with a few twists.

Simple. Nero wanted wanton destruction and revenge. Khan, however, is into conquest. Much like in 'Space Seed,' he and his Augment cronies are discovered on the Botany Bay. Due to sketchy records of the Eugenics War period, it's not realized who he truly is until it's too late, and he takes over the ship.

Except in this version of the story, it goes a bit further. Khan believes it's time to take another shot and put Earth under the rule of his 'superior' human race. And what better tool to use to do it than the most advanced ship in the fleet, the Enterprise? Things just further escalate from there.

... And we can get the immortal Mr. Harry Mudd involved somehow, too.

Perhaps Khan can ally with the Klingons, then you can add Khan, Kor and Koloth to the bunch and perhaps he can even capture a doomsday machine. What a lovely fanwank festival.

Or Twitter somehow becomes self aware. Constructs a probe, sends it into the far reaches of space. Returns hundreds of years later seeking its creator. Oh and the 'ter' have been rubbed off so it's just simply known as Twit.

I love The Wrath Of Khan but I don't think it should be remade what are your thoughts on trying to bring Khan back just picture Pine's Kirk yell Khan.

Actually - No.

Reading old posts my three year old self still has generally the same view now.

Yep, still missing the "I think it will be worse than the original" option.

Seriously, it is kind of depressive to read this old stuff and realize that one's intuition about these pathetic writers was correct.

A blunt attempt to copy TWOk like in the previous two movies will fail (i.e. it will be an entertaining but not a good movie) and moving more into the direction of Eugenic Wars, WWIII, how humans overdid genetics and deal with it now and so on seems to be more of a story for the small screen, not to mention that Orci is probably not aware of these themes.
So yeah, easy to totally dismiss this nonsense. As I always say, we are now in fluffy summer blockbuster territory. Do not expect good a story, expect an entertaining ride. Nothing wrong with that, rollercoasters are fun.
