Did EW Just Reveal That Benedict Cumberbatch Is Actually Khan?!
Ok, so Entertainment Weekly just made a big mistake. It was recently pointed out to us (via: CBM) that the magazine outlet put a headline on their website clearly stating that Khan is really going to be the villain in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness. We've been told time and time again that it's not Khan, that the villain Benedict Cumberbatch is playing is named John Harrison, but many have speculated that that's all been a cover up.
So either EW knew about Abrams' secret plan and they accidently revealed this bit of information, OR the person that wrote it had a major brain fart and for some reason put Khan's name in the headline, even though the villain isn't really Khan. But they're the ones that got the inside look, so it's safe to assume they know something we don't. Take a look at the screenshot below, and let us know what you make of it.
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
