LIKE my comic, prithee

Just finished “Star Trek Into Darkness” and thought it was great. I’m a sucker for Cumberbatch, but the rest of the cast did a great job, as well. There were some fun surprises, sly nods to Trek lore, and a good sense of pace.

Er… Spoilers follow:

I’m getting a little annoyed at a recent trend, though. As illustrated in this comic, Scott initially denied that “Prometheus” was an “Alien” prequel, though it totally was. Then, everyone denied that Marion Cotillard was playing Talia Al Ghul, but she totally was. Now, we’ve got everyone on the Internet figuring out that Cumberbatch must be playin’ Khan, to which the “Star Trek Into Darkness” tried to diffuse through smoke n’ mirrors, but again, he totally was. I’m glad that filmmakers and studios are keeping fans interested before the film’s release, but there’s got to be a better way of handling these little surprises than straight-out lying when people figure ’em out ahead of time. Maybe don’t respond to those types of questions? Or find some other way of evading without a specific denial.

Other reservation: A lot of the movie features white guys showin’ how manly they are to other white guys. Also, I still don’t get why miniskirts are standard uniforms for female Starfleet officers.
