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?
