Default The real reason JJ and Star Trek are not at Comic Com

I have been giving this alot of thought. First one could draw the conclusion that JJ loves secrets and he just wants to build excitement. Secondly they may do something large in Las Vegas in August. Or thirdly and lastly that the movie is not going as well as they hoped and they are not ready. I read some interesting quotes from JJ here.

With that being said I still think that JJ will sneak Shatner in the movie some how. Even if it is something extra on when the DVD is released.

I hope this remake/reboot/reprequel does not disappoint me as much as
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull the only other franchise as dear to my hear as Star Trek... Lucas lost me back with the release of Phantom Menace, but that is a thread for another time. I do have the same unease excited feeling about Star Trek 11 that I had for both Phantom Menace and Indy 4.

Short-

As much as I like you, SHAT isn't happening in 11. In Trek 12, who knows?

Well this thread is more about why JJ is not at Comic Con than why Shatner will be in the next film. I just hate to miss a opportunity to say it.

Still say you should enjoy him as Denny Crane, or check out some of his old series and movies, if you need a bigger Shat fix. Still feel his days as Kirk are over.

JJ will be there. But he's there to push his new Fox TV show.

As Mission said in another post, and it makes sense. Fox won't want JJ talking about another studio's moive.
