Speaking to HeyUGuys, Star Trek Into Darkness screenwriter Damon Lindelof gave a teaser of what to expect from the third, which at the very least, will be produced by Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness director JJ Abrams.

“You can never see enough Klingons, and I think in this film we’ve given the audience a little taste,” explained Lindelof, “but there’s also a promise that there’s a larger conflict on the horizon, and that would be fun to see.”

Asked whether Benedict Cumberbatch’s not-so-mystery villain would be appearing, he replied, “To answer that question would be to determine whether or not he actually survives this movie, but if he survives this movie, I think that we would be incredibly stupid to not use him again.”

Star Trek Into Darkness is due in cinemas 8 May 2013. Pick up the first film on DVD for £5.35 or Blu-ray for £9 from Amazon.co.uk.
