New image from 'Star Trek Into Darkness' with Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Benedict Cumberbatch


The big question remaining surrounding Star Trek into Darkness has to do with Benedict Cumberbatch's character. We know he's a villain, and we know he's a traitor from within Starfleet. But is he someone we already know? Khan? Gary Mitchell? Or is he someone else entirely different? Chances are we won't find out until J.J. Abrams wants us to, and there certainly aren't any answers in the latest photo that has been unveiled today.

In a scene that will no doubt remind some folks of The Avengers, the image shows Cumberbatch captured and imprisoned behind a wall of glass while Captain Kirk(Chris Pine) and Spock(Zachary Quinto) look on. I think we can safely assume being captured was probably in the villain's plans, which could make for a very familiar moment(we saw the same happen in Skyfall, as well) once we see it in theaters.  Star Trek Into Darkness opens in IMAX and 3D on May 17th 2013.
