That explanation would not change Khan's ethnicity......especially since the Mad Romulan time jumped into Kirk's time.....not back to the late 90's of the genetic wars. We should still have an Indian Khan. Complete with "ponytail"!

You do realize that Ricardo Montalban was Spanish, right?

We've never had an Indian play Khan.

My explanation is that in addition to having a name change, Khan underwent cosmetic surgery to conceal his true identity. He also used his engineered superhuman intelligence to learn to use a British accent.

Anthony Quinn, Lou Diamond Phillips and Ben Kingsley were men who could play ethnic roles!! Cumberbatch aint that kinda guy on his best day!!! Khan still was a man from that east/ middle-east part of the world.

So did anyone read that Yahoo article where Orci and Kurtzman claim that the screenplay was finished and ready to go prior to the decision that Khan was going to be the villain? That doesn't really explain the Del Toro situation, but if true, Cumberbatch would have been an original character. Crazy...if Orci and Kurtzman weren't lying.

Still doesn't change the fact that Khan is a dark-skinned man.

I'm not an original Trek fan by any means. I was sucked into this franchises by the recent JJ Abrams versions. With that said, I absolutely loved Harrison/Kahn. He was an excellent villain and was the highlight of this great film.

In hindsight, I wonder if JJ keeping a lid on Khan's identity was a bad idea, marketing-wise. I mean, sure, if he had let the audience in on it and they saw this very different-seeming incarnation, some people might've thrown a ****fit and not come at all, so who knows...

Either way, great performance by Cumby. That man knows how to pull off menacing.

It was. Khan being such a major villain from the Star Trek universe, keeping it a secret (and a badly kept one at that) prevented them from using that as a selling point when they were promoting the film.

That being said, it didn't bother me that he turned out to be Khan. Cumberbatch was outrageously good. And I loved seeing them briefly working together, which was a new take on the past incarnation of the character.

Same. Even though you just know it's going to end badly, you can't help but enjoy it.

In Wrath of Khan, they were never even in the same room together!

I loved Khan's reaction when Scotty explained that the space jump would be like jumping from a moving car off a bridge into a shot glass, and Kirk said he'd done that before. I think it was the only line that actually made him pause.

Something I remember noticing. Was it just me, or did Khan shout his own name as he was beating Kirk, before he went after Weller? Because, if so, that's hilarious. Such an 80's teen movie villain thing to do.

I did like Cumberbatch in the role. I disagree with people who say he didn't have the sex appeal to play the character. I think he has that in spades and he's a great actor. That being said I am uncomfortable with them white washing the character but that's just me.

I have less of a problem with Khan being played by a white actor than I do with Cumby playing a human character. How am I supposed to buy that ****? That man is pure extraterrestrial.

I think Johnny Depp's Tonto has put whatever debate we could have about Cumberkhan into perspective.

Cumberbatch nailed it in my eyes, they couldn't of picked a better Kahn. I wonder if its possible to see him again someday somehow.

Benedict Cumberbatch was great! He's really great with the thriller-type films like Sherlock and even "The Last Enemy" (awesome sci-fi film, very relevant to today's rapidly-developing 1984 scenario).
