For all his gruffness and intensity, we’re more used to thinking of Idris Elba as conflicted heroes or the morally right leading man. So the occasional chance to see him play a rogue is always welcome, and the idea of him going toe-to-toe with Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk and the rest of the USS Enterprise crew sounds like a lot of fun. Good news, then, that Elba is in early talks to appear in Star Trek 3.
According to Variety, it’s nowhere near a done deal yet, so for now this has to float among the flickering stars of rumour space. But if he does sign a contract, he’ll be in place to play the big bad in the latest cinematic outing of J.J. Abrams’ rebooted Trek timeline.
