Speaking with MTV, Elba praised the work done by co-writers Simon Pegg (who’s also playing Scotty) and Doug Jung, suggesting that the pair have crafted a meaty role for him to sink his teeth into for star trek 3

“Simon [Pegg] and the team have written a very interesting, complex journey for my character. You’ve never seen me play a character like this.”

Elba elaborated on what fans can expect when the film hits theaters next summer, teasing that it goes beyond the classic “good vs. evil” narrative trope and instead is something fresh and innovative for the series as a whole (while still honoring the Star Trek roots):

“I think Star Trek has prided themselves as being quite classic when it comes to villains, like ‘he’s a guy who wants to end the world,’ there’s no doubt about that. But in this version of the film, there’s a slightly different twist to that. It’s quite an interesting journey, which I think is groundbreaking for the franchise. But, it still keeps with the ’classic bad guy is a classic bad guy’ tone.”
