J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Sequel Gets its Villain?

Star Trek Sequel gets a Villain?

The casting for J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek sequel wasn’t excactly going to cause headaches. With all the cast from the stellar Star Trek ‘reboot’ returning, all Abram’s needed to concern himself with was who would play the villain of the movie.

Has Abram’s already got his eye cast on somebody? Perhaps so!

Obviously no official announcement has yet been made and this information is purely speculative, but this past Friday Variety reported that their sources say that Abrams is close to offering the part to none other than Benicio Del Toro. However, Abrams is keeping the role close to his chest and the sources do not know exactly which Villain iconic or new Del Toro will be playing.

Interesting choice. Could Trekkies be treated to a re-imagining of the classic Star Trek villain Kahn? Or someone else perhaps? With the sequel set for a June 2012 release I imagine news of the movie will be coming thick and fast in the coming months, or at least I hope it will! I was a little dubious when the reboot first was announced, but as soon as I saw it and saw what Abrams had done with the characters and the universe, I was sold.

What about you? Are you a fan of the Star Trek reboot? Are you eager to see the sequel? Who do you think the villain in the Sequel will be? What do you think of Del Toro cast as the villain? Please let me know in the comments section below!

    I thought the 2009 film was pants, mainly because of its poor plot. Sounds like this new film will be about Khan, which they should have done first. Nero (the villain in the last film) was rubbish – why did he hate Spock so much? You have to read the prequel comic to get the back-story, and that just outlines what a poor character development his genocidal tendencies are.
    Hope this one is better, or I’ll be standing up in the cinema and shouting “Abraaaams!”
