Reports online indicate that there could be a well-known figure from the Star Trek franchise making a return for an independent spin-off.

Those who love Khan – and especially Benedict Cumberbatch in the role – will no doubt be excited to hear rumours that he could be reprising the position as the classic villain.

There are supposedly plans to include the spinoff on Paramount, with Cumberbatch being a hot commodity in recent years.

This is because he has starred in Doctor Strange, The Grinch, 1917, Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle and a number of MCU projects.
