With five more months until Star Trek Into Darkness, more information is slowly being released to keep the anticipation level high. Reports from a press conference at J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot last night reveal that Dr. Carol Marcus (who previously appeared in 1982’s Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) will have a role in the rebooted Star Trek franchise, this time being played by Alice Eve.
It is speculated that Darkness might cover the young love story between Marcus and Captain Kirk. The two fall in love and have a child before eventually separating after the realization that they are from different worlds. She later reappears when Khan steals a device from her, but it isn’t yet known if this is the same route the new producers will take with the characters.
Speculation can be laid to rest when Star Trek Into Darkness hits theaters May 17, 2013.
