Star Trek Into Darkness has already exposed its secrets. However, the topic of "exposure" seems to be a controversial point when it comes to the gratuitous, instantly-Internet-famous (some have said "sexist") scene with Alice Eve's Carol Marcus rocking her space lingerie. That's why director, J.J. Abrams wanted to use his appearance on Conan last night to clear the air...by showing a deleted scene proving that there originally was plenty more skin to go around in the film, especially when it came to Benedict Cumberbatch's villainous "John Harri-Khan." -- And yes, it's an actual deleted scene from the film, NOT a parody.
The scene, depicting a bare-chested Benedict taking a moment to ensure that monstrous B.O. won't be his instrument for genocide, is what Abrams calls "the shower of evil." Yet, despite its sinister, possibly-puzzling undertones, it was made to serve as evidence that the film was, in the very least, an equal-opportunity offender in its gratuitousness. Indeed, Abrams is also quick to point out that Into Darkness also contains a skin-centric scene with Chris Pine's Captain Kirk, giving a little something back for the ladies, but does admit that the Carol Marcus peep show could have been handled in a more subtle way.
Regardless, it seems that we may have gotten our first sneak peak at what could eventually be made available on the DVD/Blu-ray extras. Sure, it's nothing exciting enough to spill your "space seed" over, but it's an interesting (and actually kind of funny) tidbit about the current box-office topper.
