Star Trek is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and fans of the franchise are waiting for the release of Star Trek Beyond later this summer.
Will fans see William Shatner in the new film? There has been speculation and rumors about the possibility of the original Captain James T. Kirk appearing in the film in some way, but Shatner has now revealed in a new interview that he will not appear in Star Trek Beyond.
In fact, he said there was not even a conversation about the possibility. According to Blastr, he said more about the possibility to SFX Magazine:
“It would have been interesting to see what their fertile imaginations could have done with somebody who is 20 years older than when Captain Kirk died and how they would have explained the difference in appearance. But that never came up. I’m sure they must have thought of it one time or another but I never had a substantial conversation about replaying the role.”
William Shatner was last seen in Star Trek Generations. Would you have wanted to see the return of William Shatner to the franchise again? Tell us what you think.
