In a new interview on the Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit publicity tour, TotalFilm.com got Trek actor Chris Pine to talk about his hopes for the next appearance of James T. Kirk in Star Trek 3.
TotalFilm: "If you were to sit down with the writers of Star Trek 3, and request any scene or moment for Kirk, what would that be?"
Chris Pine: "Well, for anybody that's seen [Into Darkness], given the fact Kirk's been revived by Khan's blood, I think there's definitely room for Kirk to go dark, which we've obviously seen in the Original Series. That would be fun, I think."
We saw several versions of a "dark" Kirk in the TOS, from the evil half of the captain in "The Enemy Within" to the raving madman from the Mirror Universe in "Mirror, Mirror", to the raw, Klingon-hating Kirk seen in the opening of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country -- but whether this is just Pine's speculation or a hint into the future of the film franchise, only time will tell.
