Oops! Entertainment Weekly Accidentally SPOILS The Identity Of New Star Trek Into Darkness Character!

| Filed under: Film FlickersOops!Media MinuteChris Pine

We think it's safe to say that A CERTAIN ENTERTAINMENT NEWS PUBLICATION just sky-rocketed to the top of J.J. Abrams' shit list!

To be fair, Benedict Cumberbatch's much-publicized and speculated-upon role as the mysterious, nefarious "John Harrison" in the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness has been long-rumored to be a red herring, as he's actually playing the iconic villain Khan, a genetically enhanced human tyrant!

But for those of you hoping to wait until the flick's premiere to find out the truth about the character's origins are going to be super disappointed…because according to promotional materials for Entertainment Weekly's upcoming issue, which dedicates two different covers to the sci-fi extravaganza both also featuring Chris Pine, Benedict is DEFINITELY bringing Khan into J.J.'s interpretation of the franchise!

Ch-ch-check out the ad that spoiled it all (above) and has since been removed!

Oh boy!

Our heart goes out to whomever had the supreme misfortune of being responsible for that…because we have a feeling his or her ass was shown the door before the page's text was even adjusted!

But hey! For all you Trekkies having coniptions over being spoiled!

Keep in mind that this series follows an entirely different timeline than the original!

Even though we're pretty positive Khan is coming, he could be an ENTIRELY different incarnation of the character!

And if anyone can re-create that role - and make entirely his own, while equally bad-ass - it is our beloved Benedict!

What do U think? Are U excited to see how Khan will be in Star Trek Into Darkness?

    kind of useless to put the spoiler alert after the picture..

    I doubt that he is playing KHAN. There has been speculation for months that he was playing Khan, and one of Entertainment Weekly's staff proobably saw it posted online that he was playing khan, and printed it wrongly as fact. The same kind of thing that Perez does, ad nauseum, without having all the facts. I suspect that he isn't Khan at all, but someone who wIll work towards bringing Khan back for part 3.

    if you bothered to read the article you would see they acknowledge that he isn't officially kahn but there is speculation.

    Saw the first 3, that was good enough for me, will not go to any more sequels.

    Re: Demode
    I've seen the movie (it was released in Mexico this weekend) and believe me… he is Khan! and he is frightening, threatening, scary and awesome! and the movie is really really good!
