An anonymous source
is claiming that the villain isn't Khan, but that it is
a TOS character:
It’s definitely a character that will make fans of TOS excited. Think along the lines of Harry Mudd or Trelane or Gary Mitchell or the Talosians or the Horta. Actually it’s one of those that I named.
Now, the blogger who received the tip thinks Mitchell's the most likely contender, but the character's already been done
in the Abrams-verse comic book series.
the source is legit, I'm hoping for Harry Mudd. Although Liberace-in-space Trelane would be entertaining, to say the least.
Of course, given that we know a character will be a businessman of some sort, the Horta would also make sense, I guess. Though how they could structure a feature around it is more than I could say. They could try an Alien
-style approach, but since we already know what the Horta's up to, that wouldn't make for very gripping viewing, would it?
