During Abrams' appearance at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, a monitor behind him allegedly shows a figure that looks like an armored Klingon warrior.
How the Klingons will look like in J.J. Abrams' anticipated "Star Trek" sequel might have been revealed. When Abrams made an appearance at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, June 3, a monitor behind him allegedly displayed a glimpse of an armored Klingon warrior.
TrekMovie was the first to notice it, but it was HitFix which confirmed that the figure shown in the monitor behind Abrams' back was indeed a Klingon that will appear in "Star Trek 2". Multiple insiders told the movie site that the image "wasn't included in the clip by accident."
The sources said that it was "a fun way to tease the design" of the Klingon race in Abrams' untitled Star Trek sequel. The Klingon figure shown in the monitor was similar to the one in a deleted scene from the 2009 film.
Abrams is always known for his highly secretive treatment related to the plot details of "Star Trek 2". It has long been speculated that Benedict Cumberbatch is cast as Khan who is rumored to be the major antagonist. However, Simon Pegg recently insisted that the rumor was not true.
"I think people just want to have scoop. It annoys me - it's beyond the point to just ferret around for spoilers all the time to try to be the first to break them," said the Scotty depicter. "It just spoils the film. It masquerades as interest in the movie but really it's just nosiness and impatience. You just want to say, 'Oh f**k off! Wait for the film!' "
Being slated for a May 17, 2013 release in the U.S., "Star Trek 2" will also bring back Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Chris Pine, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban and John Cho as Spock, Uhura, James T. Kirk, Pavel, Bones and Hikaru Sulu respectively.
