While the Star Trek team won’t dish on any details about Benedict Cumberbatch’s character in Star Trek Into Darkness they have revealed that he was the part of the inspiration for the title.
Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the two writers for Into Darkness told Star Trek magazine that because Cumberbatch’s character started off with Starfleet, Orci explained that “some might see part of the title coming from the fact that [John Harrison is] kind of a dark shadow of members of our crew.”
But of course, we cannot ignore the fact that even though the entire mood of the film is overall darker than the first, we will still be able to find the light in Into Darkness. Kurtzman said, “I think we all worked very hard to make sure the theme of hope, what hope costs, and what it’s really about, was always alive in how we were designing our story.”
The main goal for the writers was to stay true to “the Star Trek universe” that Gene Roddenberry – the show’s creator – created.
Do you think the new films have stayed true to the original series?
