Eric Bana did a fantastic job as Nero the villain with an axe to grind in JJ Abrams first Star Trek. Now it seem Benicio Del Toro is being heavily looked at to the play the big baddie in Star Trek 2. Rumors are flying around who he may be. Many Trek nerds are worried that he will be brought in as Khan. For me that decision would be a bad idea. This cast could really run on their own for two more movies. Throwing characters from other films at us would be unwise. Make Del Toro a completely new and real menacing character. I personally really love Abrams Star Trek, I though it was fun and really also worked well with the previous films and series. I know many hard core fans don’t see it that way but come on lighten up this could really lead to a great movie series.
