Ever since the Star Trek reboot pulled in a respectable $384.9 million worldwide last summer and Paramount confirmed that a sequel was being fast-tracked for the summer of 2011, the rumor wagon has circled over whether the genetically-engineered tyrant Khan Noonien Singh would be appearing in the Trek sequel.
Some fans believe the late Ricardo Montalban played the part perfectly and we shouldn't regurgitate his character for this revised series while others suggest it's a role we should see again on the big screen. Co-star John Cho told ComingSoon yesterday, while promoting the DVD release, that he's leaning towards Khan to be the next villain.
And today, ComingSoon is reporting that if Khan is indeed playing the part, they believe who Star Trek director J.J. Abrams will have for the role. It would be Nestor Carbonell, who plays Richard Alpert on the Abrams-executive produced ABC series "Lost," and who played Mayor Anthony Garcia on The Dark Knight.
Can you see Nestor playing Khan in the sequel? Do you even want Khan to be remade? Sound off below.
