The hype and anticipation for Star Trek is building and so discussion of a possible sequel are already building as well. That’s natural. I’m still not sure what to expect. Reactions from a couple of my friends who have seen it already have been mixed. Some loving it, some saying “meh”, and 1 hating it. I think it looks promising, but well have to wait and see.
With regards to a possible sequel, there is already talk about bringing possibly the most popular of all Star Trek characters back. KHAN!!!!!!!
In an interview with the writers, the concept was suggested to them that Khan should return and played by Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men). This was their reaction:
Kurtzman: Oh my God!
Orci: Did you know we’ve actually mentioned that out loud as a possibility? What a great idea.
Lindelof: Come on. That’s a no-brainer. That would be the most amazing thing ever. Who would even what to see these [new] guys then?
I’m not one to use the word “perfect” too often when discussing casting… but holy freak, Javier Bardem as Khan would indeed be PERFECT! Ricardo Montalban himself would smile down his blessing from heaven if this hapened. (source: Coming Soon)
