Cool So is Cumberbatch Gary Mitchell or not?

Supposedly there's a quote circulating from Karl Urban that Benedict Cumberbatch is indeed Gary Mitchell in ST2013...

He said,
“[Cumberbatch is] awesome, he’s a great addition, and I think his Gary Mitchell is going to be exemplary.”


No confirmation yet, but...

That rumour has popped up on a couple of websites now. But until confirmation comes...............

I think that character makes more sense than Khan in terms of Cumberbatch's appearance and I would have hugely less of a problem with it being him than if he were Khan. It does fit with yet more of the long standing rumours of who may crop up (since Mitchell was, I believe one of the 5 listed candidates on that news bit from about 18 months ago).

And I say that being fond of 'Where No Man Has Gone Before'.

I wonder if the Liithium refinery will now be on a 'different' Delta Vega. Lol! If it hadn't been stated that Alice Eve was playing a new character I would even think she could be the perfect Dehner as well. Same style blonde haircut and blue uniform in that photosnap a few months back.

I thought he is going to be Khan?

The Khan thing was false.

To date, there has never been official studio confirmation of Khan. Only rumour upon rumour.

Exactly.

Only problem is, Mitchell is supposed to already be dead in this timestream. Assuming the Star Trek Ongoing comics are as official as Orci-Kurtzman say they are.

I haven't been keeping up on those..............that would appear to be a problem if so. Yes.

I think the new movie may be following the same infamous misdirection that was done with the first JJ film. It's entirely possible Urban "slipped" on purpose.
