Pine previously mentioned shooting a scene with Star Trek villain Benedict Cumberbatch, which may give hint as to Cumberbatch’s identity.
The latest has Pine talking about his character and the direction Star Trek Into Darkness will take Captain Kirk.
“Kirk is fun because he is a brash, cocky, bull-headed kind of guy,” Pine offered. “I think the journey he goes on in this new film is a lot about – the first one was about getting the chair, the captain’s chair, and the second one is about earning it. And I think that’s a big part of his journey there.”
