Standard Orbit 54: Kirk’s Joker / by Drew Stewart

Khan-mentary 3: Into Darkness Commentary.

It's finally time for the last part in our commentary series on everyone's favorite bad guy, Khan! In Khan-mentary 3, John Tenuto joins Mike and Drew to talk about Star Trek Into Darkness! We talk about how much the writers of this film may have pulled from early drafts of Wrath of Khan besides the obvious bits, whether the casting and subsequent secrecy of Khan drew unnecessary criticism, and if there's more to the movie than a series of action scenes.

Running Time: 2 hours 26 minutes 48 seconds
