Yet another image from Empire‘s “Star Trek Into Darkness” cover story has made its way online. This one features Benedict Cumberbatch’s villain John Harrison and Karl Urban’s Dr. McCoy as McCoy treats something on Harrison’s arm.
It’s not much in the way of spoilers, but one of Simon Pegg’s comments from the article is. He reveals that Harrison is much more manipulative than the crew of the Enterprise realizes, so this could be an instance of Harrison playing McCoy for a fool.
“It’s a modern take on terrorism in a way. It looks at why Benedict is doing what he’s doing,” Pegg told the magazine, via ComicBookMovie.com. “There are motives that make you think he’s not a bad guy and alliances form. All the time we’re being puppeteered by this John Harrison, even Kirk falls for it. He manipulates us as much as the audience.”
