Benedict Cumberbatch divulges Star Trek villain details

Dec 7 2012, 8:43am CST | by

Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed his 'Star Trek Into Darkness' character is ''ruthless''.

The 36-year-old actor and director J.J. Abrams have kept the identity of the mysterious villain under wraps until now, but the 'War Horse' star let slip his evil alter ego would be very difficult to judge because of his ambiguous nature.

Benedict told Trek Movie: ''He is very ruthless. He is not a clearly good or evil character. He is a villain but the actions he takes has intent and reason.

''He is a complicated character not to be judged by white-or-black, or good-or-evil. But this is the appeal of J.J.'s works and I felt challenged as an actor.''

The British star praised 'LOST' creator J.J.'s 2009 reboot of the cult sci-fi series, but is wary of the franchise's popularity and said he was overcome with ''terror'' when he realised how many people would be watching the sequel.

Benedict explained: ''I was a fan of the [first film], so I was pleased when I got the offer. But I know the second one will become far-bigger scale, so I felt terror instantly.''

His co-star Chris Pine - who plays hero Captain James T. Kirk - was impressed with Benedict's ''formidable'' performance on set and thinks fans will love the intensity he brings to the film.

Chris recently said: ''Obviously I can't say much, but there's one scene in it. It's a really hard scene, not for me, but for Benedict. And watching him handle that and to make something that I think, on paper, could have really been a death trap for an actor. He's formidable as an actor and as a character in the story.''

'Star Trek Into Darkness' is released on May 17 next year.

SiriusXM's Entertainment Weekly Radio Channel Broadcasts from Comic-Con 2014
Following the panel for Home, DreamWorks Animation moved to Penguins of Madagascar.  In the upcoming spinoff, the scene-stealing penguins take the lead, and are joined by a wolf named Classified (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) and his covert team of protective animals as they try to stop Dave (John Malkovich), a malevolent octopus.  Even though I’ve never been much for the Madagascar movies, the Penguins have always been wonderful, and I was interested to see if they could carry their ow ...

Benedict Cumberbatch’s visage — in which he portrays an intensely focused Sherlock Holmes — adorns posters and T-shirts throughout a cavernous but crowded room, but it was the man himself who brought the San Diego Comic-Con to a standstill when he took part in the panel introducing Dreamworks Animation’s latest installment in their Madagascar series, The Penguins of Madagascar, in theaters this Thanksgiving.  Even before he took the stage ...
