Sometimes the best leaked information isn’t from that guy who works at a studio pretending to be a fan who “knows a guy” but rather from the mouth of those involved that trip over their own tongues and slip something they might not have wanted to say.
When it came time to talk about Star trek’s prequel comics, they were talking about how the Next Generation cast plays an important role in the story of the prequel and that in the last issue, (issue 4 I believe) it ends in a major cliffhanger with Nero that leads right into the new J.J. Abrams Star Trek movie.
“The end of issue 4 is a cliffhanger and is going to continue in the first few minutes of the movie.”
Right after that was said, another writer (or artist) said that part of the movie will take place with the Next Generation cast and to look out for that. Another guy on the panel gave him a quick “uh oh” look.
After that, someone from the audience asked “So are members of the Next Generation cast in the new Trek movie?” to which the same guy replied, “I really cannot say anything about that.”
Oops! I think you already did!
We speculated a while ago why Picard and Data were pictured on the prequel comic that will lead up into the movie.
I think it is a great idea to have the old lead into the story that will relaunch the new. Well the new old new.
My head hurts.
Can’t wait to see how this plays out.
