Khaaaaan! Khaaaaan! Khaaaan!

That is William Shatner at his best yelling words into the Black Void we call Space. Yep! You guessed it Khan Noonien Singh: tyrant, Eugenics Wars survivor, freaky space-yoga practitioner and all around Kirk ball-buster (1) is back for seconds. As you can see from the picture above that guy is going to play him , possibly, in the next movie from J.J Abrams. Will they do the same story just better, or will Mr. Abrams have some sort of other twist? Will James Tiberius Kirk make his return finally? There was a lot of drama with the last Star Trek movie over William Shatner not being in it that I would be surprised if they make that mistake again.

Breaking news Vgchart Community! William Shatner has agreed to do a video interview with me! Wow! This is an honor Mr. Shatner. What do you have to say about the new Star Trek movie that is coming out. We all know you are a very cheesy over the top actor, so make it short and sweet!

There you have it! Like poetry Mr. Shatner. Thank you for your time. That is all this week Vgchart Community. Come back next week to see Marlon Brando and John Candy in a Sub eating contest. http://movies.ign.com/articles/121/1213897p1.html

Another update already. In a surprising turn of events, Benicio Del Toro walks away from a chance to play the villain of ‘Star Trek 2′ – a character who’s been confirmed by another source to indeed be the long-rumored Khan.

Also from what I have seen on a few websites older Spock will not be returning.

The new Star Trek movie wasn't as bad as I though it would be and I didn't miss Shatner, but since I'm not a trekie(?) I may be the minority.

Del Toro is a good actor so he will do a good Khan, but we'll see how it goes.

Also I don't know how they can put Shatner in the film being Kirk (if you saw the movie you know what I mean).

:)  This is star trek. They can do what they want. probably why they won my recent star trek vs star wars thread... or are winning.

Just no. Any Trekkie can tell you why.

Are you saying just no to them remaking this movie with the same basic story? or to kirk number 1 being in it?

captain number 2...

Personally i think the new Star Trek film was reasonabily good. i think the story couldve been a bit tighter, the thing that made it work was Kirk and Spock.

i dont think Khan should return, mainly because hes been done already, in what many fans would consider a definitive iteration of the character. why do it again? theres so many different villains and stories they could do rather than this.

My guess would be that they are trying to stay away from regular star trek as much as possible. Borg, would be one example. Although first Contact was great!

First Contact was awesome; but the same thing goes for that really, the Borg have been done to death in the tv series. they are perhaps a more relevant villain, in the sense Khan is just a guy who hates Kirk. the Borg are philosphically against everything the Federation stands for. they are a force of nature. and i would love to see an origin story with them. Khan not so much; people will love it for nostalgia. i doubt it will be that good.



I personally don't think Khan should be the villain in the next film. The Wrath of Khan is the best Trek movie (at least for a lot of Trekkie's) and I feel they may be biting off more than they can chew. But I have been wrong before.
