MTV has posted the first three photos from the forthcoming Star Trek sequel, with a title that is yet to be announced by director J.J. Abrams. We suspect that the title may give away a major plot element, so fingers crossed that it’s all about Harry Mudd.
The two initial photos show Uhura (Zoe Saldana) battling Benedict Cumberbatch, and Spock (Zachary Quinto) going Vulcan on the same. This more or less confirms the rumours that Cumberbatch was going to play the villain in the film. Either that, or he is just really disliked by the rest of the cast and these are candid shots.
Very few details have been released about the notorious secretive Abrams’ follow-up to his first hit, but Roberto Orci and co-writers Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof are the writers behind the film.
The sequel, as you can tell from the photos, has begun shooting and is set for a 3D and 3D IMAX release in 17 May 2013 from Paramount.
