Carol Marcus confirmed.

Multiple reports from inside the conference reveal that Alice Eve will be playing the role of Dr. Carol Marcus in Star Trek Into Darkness. Marcus is a character displayed in perhaps the most acclaimed Star Trek film to date Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and was previously portrayed by Bibi Besch.

Carol Marcus not only is an important character for the role of Khan but also for Captain Kirk as well. When they were younger, most likely the years displayed within Darkness, Marcus and Kirk are in love and eventually have a child together. However when they come to the realization that they are of two different worlds with Kirk exploring the galaxy and constantly on leave, they separate.

Marcus comes back into the picture when her Genesis Device is stolen by Khan. With the ability to turn uninhabitable planets ready to sustain life once more, it's unknown whether or not we could see this plot point once more on the big screen. With a new timeline being established in the predecessor and giving significant changes to exactly what we've seen before, it's uncertain exactly what new direction the history of these characters could take.

But here's an interesting question: does Marcus' involvement mean Cumberbatch could be Khan? Yes, we understand it's quite the stretch, especially with this being the early years of the Carol/Kirk relationship.The stronger speculated villains thus far include Sybock, Gary Mitchell and Khan, the identity of Cumberbatch has been kept quiet. But according to TrekMovie's comments sections, there is in fact an Enterprise crew member "Harrison" who appeared numerous times in the original series. Given that Benicio del Toro was once in contention to play Cumberbatch's role, and del Toro has a similar appearance to Harrison, could this former redshirt be the identity of our mystery antagonist?
