"Star Trek Beyond" co-writer Simon Pegg has teased more details about Idris Elba’s villainous Star Trek Beyond character, in an interview with MTV News

Pegg teased Elba's character to be “a really interesting, complex character,”

Pegg also mentioned that Elba's character is something quite different to Benedict Cumberbatch’s Khan, the villain of Star Trek Into Darkness.

“Only because it would be a retread. What we don’t want to do is have the same kind of villain with the same motivation.”

Production is under way in Vancouver on "Star Trek Beyond", which will be released during the franchise’s 50th anniversary year.
