We’ve seen and heard very little about the sequel to J.J. Abrams’ wildly successful Star Trek reboot, but leaked photos have come to light that might give us a little more information!

We won’t waste your time. Here’s the first, courtesy of MTVNews! It features Zachary Quinto as Spock brawling with an unknown villain played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

IS SPOCK USING THE VULCAN NERVE PINCH?! AWESOME! There’s alot that we can deduce from this photo. The identity of Cumberbatch’s villain is currently unknown, but because he seems to be wearing Star Fleet academy attire, it might be safe to assume that he might start out the film as a friend.

This second photo features Zoe Saldana as Uhura with her phaser pointed at…Spock? UPDATE: Our very astute readers have pointed out that this is NOT Spock she’s pointing her phaser at, (notice the lack of pointy ears, also Spock wouldn’t be caught dead without his officer blues) it seems to be Cumberbatch, but of course there is no real way to be sure. Good eye Hypers! What could this mean?

We’ll let you decide for yourself. What do you make of these leaked images? What villain could Cumberbatch be playing? Does this reignite your excitement for Star Trek 2?

    Why is Benedict Cumberbatch shooting something that isn’t Sherlock? Unacceptable!

    It looks cool. Yesterday I saw Star Trek for the first time, and it was awesome.

    I loved the first one so I am excited for the second!! Idk about the second photo but it doesn’t look like the guy Uhura is pointing at is Spock.

    OMG! THIS totally made my day. I had no idea they were filming already! FINALLY. I’ve been waiting for this sequel forever.  & that is not Spock Uhura is pointing her phaser at. You can clearly tell by the ears…… & where’s Kirk?! I want MORE!!!

      She’s pointing at Benedict Cumberbatch, you can tell by the nose/profile

  • Nia Black

    You guys, I think the person in the second photo is Benedict Cumberbatch. That’s who Uhura is shooting at. Same silvery jacket as the first photo. I doubt they’d show Spock in anything other than his Officer blue.

      Thanks for the observation! We’ve edited the article to reflect this. Good eye! It looked like Quinto’s profile to me for some reason!

    That’s Benedict Cumberbatch she’s pointing the gun at.

    to correct you hypable i’ve never not been excited for star trek 2 ugh next year can’t get here fast enough… :D

  • AvisWizard178

    I agree that it’s Benedict Cumberbatch in photo 2. I have a feeling he may play a vulcan character, after all he is tall and thin, with a long face shape and can be a very good monotonous actor. In fact he is the perfect vulcan. By the way- this is a great article, James.

    I’m just pissed that Chris Hemsworth’s George Kirk was killed off already. Sooooo hot! :)

    But seriously, I’m excited for this.

  • Just Sayin

    What do you mean RE-Ignite?  I’ve been waiting on pins and needles for the sequel and it’s finally in production.

    Guys, guys, it’s Benedict, I’m sure of it. I’ve spent way to much time staring at that man to be wrong. *_____*

    LOOK AT THE CHEEKBONES. That’s Benedict. Unless there’s someone else in the cast with cheekbones that noticeable, but I doubt it.
