The Evil Genius Posted December 7, 2011 Share Posted December 7, 2011 Here is my choice - Philip Rhys He's young enough to go toe to toe with Chris Pine (Kirk). Plus, he wouldn't be the "star" playing the villain...so he could become Khan move convincingly. Remember, the entire Star Trek universe has been re-written with the ending of the first movie...so anything is possible. http://entertainment.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/12/06/9248670-khaaaaaan-should-trek-film-bring-back-villain KHAAAAAAN! Should 'Trek' film bring back villain? By Gael Fashingbauer Cooper He's "Star Trek's" most iconic individual villain, and the inspiration for one of the most famed one-word movie quotes in history. Ricardo Montalban made him famous. He's Khan Noonien Singh, best known as Khan, or, in Shatner-speak, "KHAAAAAAAAAAAN!" Last week, a rumor began to circulate that Benicio del Toro would play Khan in the next "Star Trek" movie. Now New York Magazine's Vulture column says del Toro is out of the film over money issues. But is Khan still in the running to be the villain, even if played by someone else? Hitfix contacted director and producer J.J. Abrams, who said "not true." Of course, this being "Star Trek," nothing is over until you hear the Klingon Death Scream. As Hitfix smartly points out, unless the new film, a sequel to the 2009 reboot, jumps waaaay far into the future, the events of the 1982 "Wrath of Khan" film aren't ready to happen.
