Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch, Ever since we were able to break the news about Benedict Cumberbatch appearing in upcoming Star Trek 2, we’ve been wondering what he’s going to look like in the movie. Will he be covered in alien makeup or will he be playing a human? Looks like we’re finding out now.

In the first picture, which I think may just be the culmination of many a fangirl (and some fanboys), we’ve got both Benedict Cumberbatch and Zachary Quinto in the middle of some sort of fight. I’m guessing Spock is giving Unnamed Villain nr. 1 the good old Vulcan Nerve Pinch (which, by the way, I’m hoping he gives to a horse or any other large mammal in this movie as well).

Either way; it’s an exciting and dramatic picture that I’m sure will lead to a lot of speculation – especially considering the fact that Benedict isn’t appearing as a Vulcan, Klingon, Romulan or any other alien species that we would have guessed. He isn’t even wearing a recognizable uniform of any sort.

In the second picture, Zoe Saldana appears together with Benedict in a standoff of some sort. Here, Benedict is wearing a completely different outfit, but it’s still obvious that he’s not in any sort of alien get-up. Might it be that the plot of the movie has something to do with an Earth-based villain instead of something that sends them gallivanting throughout the galaxy?
