Fans are starting to wonder when they will get their first glimpse of the Star Trek sequel currently in production. A possibility could be at the annual San Diego Comic Con in July, and now producer/writer Damon Lindelof is saying that the team has a "strong desire" to be there with something to show. Details below.
Lindelof: ‘Strong Desire’ To Show Something From Star Trek Sequel At Comic Con 2012
While promoting Prometheus at Wondercon over the weekend Star Trek sequel co-writer/producer told Slashfilm he hopes to be at Comic Con for the Star Trek sequel, noting:
We have not. There is a very strong desire to do be there. We wrap production in May and Comic Con is in early July, so obviously if there is something worth showing we will show it. And if there is nothing worth showing we will at least be there for people to throw fruits and vegetables and tribbles at us.
If they did do a big Star Trek panel with footage at SDCC it would be the first time. For the last film there was a panel at the 2007 comic con, where the casting of Leonard Nimoy was revealed. But for 2008 (the year before release) there was not big Star Trek panel, although there were some Paramount booth promotions. Instead Paramount chose to do a big panel at the San Francisco Wondercon in early 2009. Hopefully for the 2013 film they don’t wait for Wondercon and they do some kind of reveal at SDCC.
Comic Con will be held July 12-15, 2012 and TrekMovie will be there to cover whatever they show, or to throw some tribbles if they don’t show anything.
