Idris Elba heading to STAR TREK 3??? Yes, Please!

I have to admit I’m so ready for this rumor to be true. According to Variety the screen thespian and all-around slice of awesomeness, Idris Elba, is heading into the science fiction realm courtesy of Star Trek 3.

Right now all that’s known is that it’s apparently in the role of a bad guy and the movie is still on track for it’s July 8, 2016 release date. We have no idea who he might be so for all the fanboys and fangirls out there it’s time to speculate. Personally, I want him to be a Klingon, why? Because this latest feature needs to follow the built up narrative of an Empire vs. Federation war.

Considering that the plot of Star Trek Into Darkness focused on a disgruntled branch of humanity that was more then ready for all out conflict, it would make sense for the next chapter to make good on its trilogy status wherein it finds a way to bring that arc to some sort of close. Because of that I think it’s time we see what’s going through alien eyes on Kronos, especially following that Captain Kirk lead excursion into their sovereign space.

But hey, it’s early and I’m more then open to suggestions here dear readers. So who do you think Idris Elba is going to play? What role do you see him in? Are you excited for the next installment of the lasting property?
