Benicio Del Toro is out for Star Trek 2? Khan is still in?

12.05.2011

What in the sweet hell is going on here? Did we not already discuss this topic today?

It looks like Benicio Del Toro will not be playing the villain in STAR TREK 2 according to Vulture. Their insiders claim that last Wednesday the negotiations went sour over monetary issues. An agreement could not be met so Del Toro walked.

That's all for that part of the story.

So you know this whole back and forth crap we have going on between websites over whether Khan will be the villain in the sequel? Well, add another to the "Khan is playing the villain" camp. Vultures insiders are saying that despite J.J. Abrams claiming the rumors of Khan are "not true", they in fact are.

Frankly, I wish someone, either Abrams or his rep would put this shit to rest. It doesn't make a load of difference if Khan is the villain or not. People are still going to see the movie no matter who he makes the villain. If the Del Toro stuff is true, that's kind of a bummer but I'm sure they will find someone that's just as cool.

Wait...does this mean Peter Weller might play Khan? That would be interesting.

Extra Tidbit: If Khan is in fact the villain, who would you guys want to see take on the part?

There's a bid difference between....

There's a big difference between having the character in the movie and having the character be the main villain in the movie.

Khan is probably isn't the main villain, but he'll have a role in order to set-up the third movie (If their smart) This could explain why there's money issues with Benicio.

Khan a good guy

What if Khan was in it, but not be a bad guy? Didn't he hate Kirk in ST2 because of something Kirk did to him during the ST show? That hasn't happened yet. For all we know, Khan could join up with Kirk to battle someone else.

Well Khan was a genetically engineered tyrant who started the Eugenics Wars in the Trek timeline, so cant see him and Kirk ever really going to be bff's.

Khan was lame and forgettable. Unless you're referring to the movie version, of course, but this is supposed to be their first meeting which was, again, forgettable. There were enough great episodes of the original show, but we all know JJ well enough to know he will do something entirely original, so why even speculate?

This is Star Trek 12, not Star Trek 2. I know all the new hipster fans want to forget the real Star Trek movies exist.

I am also interested to see how they introduce Khan as a villain, considering the previous movie erased his personal conflict with Kirk that made the REAL Star Trek 2 a movie.

When they say "monetary issues"... What Del Toro wanted more money? That sucks. I really wanted him in this.

Mads Mikkelson

Mads Mikkelson---> my number one choice...

After that, no specific order, but each choice adds a specific flare:

Javier Bardem
Rodrigo Santoro
Michael Shannon
Michael Irby
Matt Schulze
Josh Holloway
Michael Biehn

Forget Khan, I vote for Zach Galifianakis as Harcourt Fenton Mudd.

I would literally pay $100 dollars to see Peter Wellers as the villian in a Star Trek movie give the "Man Who Taught his Asshole to Speak" routine from Naked Lunch.

Are these people who keep claiming Khan will be the Star Trek 2 villians the same people who claimed the Riddler would definitely be villian in the 3rd Batman film? We saw how that turned out.

put this shit to rest?

what would have to happen for this to be put to rest, the director saying that it's not true?

oh wait, he ALREADY SAID THAT yet media websites and magazines are still going spreading the word from 'sources' that Khan is the villain... Abrams said he's NOT. End of story. He could be lying but you aren't gonna find a better more legitimate 'source' than him, so until he admits that he's lying what he says goes and Khan is NOT in the movie. PERIOD.

also, really sucks Del Toro is gone, a big
