1st Trek 2 video shows Cumberbatch beating the $#@! out of Quinto

After the first leaked Star Trek 2 pics, here comes the first leaked video—which shows the on-set scuffle between Zachary Quinto's Spock and Benedict Cumberbatch's as-yet-still-unnamed villain. Kapow!

The video shows the Sherlock star—and deliciously named—Cumberbatch battling it out with the USS Enterprise's commander Spock, under the watchful eye of Star Trek 2 director J.J. Abrams, a wind machine, an IMAX camera and a green screen.

As you guys will see, the fight leads to that famous Vulcan nerve pinch move by Quinto, which is easily deflected by Cumberbatch's villain—which has led to many online speculations (and it's one of our very favorites) that even if the actor's NOT playing Khan Noonien Singh, he could be playing another of the Botany Bay's Augments (from the TOS episode ''Space Seed''). What if another survivor from the Eugenics Wars woke up instead of Khan on that ship? It's an alternate timeline, after all. Food for thought.

(As an aside: We really wish Abrams would just come out with it and give us a name! Writing "Cumberbatch's unnamed villain" just takes too much time.)

Take a look at the video below.

What do you guys think? Do you have more theories to share?
