Will we hear Idris Elba yell "Qapla!" anytime soon?
Elba and studio Paramount Pictures have not commented.
The films are part of a big screen reboot of the original '60s franchise and star Chris Pine as James T. Kirk, captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise starship, Zachary Quinto as first officer Mr. Spock and Zoe Saldana as communications officer Uhura.
Few details have been revealed about the upcoming third movie, the follow-up to Star Trek Into Darkness, which starred fellow British heartthrob Benedict Cumberbatch as the superhuman-like villain Khan. The second film featured Klingons, one of the protagonists' enemies during the movies' time period. There have been rumors that Klingons will be featured in Star Trek 3 but there has been no official confirmation.
If Elba does play a Klingon villain, he'll either be the most attractive Klingon ever or you may not even recognize him due to all the prosthetics and makeup.
So all of this...
