It seems we're in the midst of a trend of tentpole villains favoring distinct vocal deliveries. From Heath Ledger and Tom Hardy as Joker and Bane in "The Dark Knight" and "The Dark Knight Rises" respectively, to Javier Bardem's Silva in "Skyfall" to Leonardo DiCaprio's Calvin Candie in "Django Unchained," all added some vocal flair to the lines on the page that made those parts stand out. And now Benedict Cumberbatch will try and do it twice in 2013. He'll be behind Smaug in "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," and next month he'll gravely intone Captain Kirk and the crew's death in "Star Trek Into Darkness."

It seems we're in the midst of a trend of tentpole villains favoring distinct vocal deliveries. From Heath Ledger and Tom Hardy as Joker and Bane in "The Dark Knight" and "The Dark Knight Rises" respectively, to Javier Bardem's Silva in "Skyfall" to Leonardo DiCaprio's Calvin Candie in "Django Unchained," all added some vocal flair to the lines on the page that made those parts stand out. And now Benedict Cumberbatch will try and do it twice in 2013. He'll be behind Smaug in "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," and next month he'll gravely intone Captain Kirk and the crew's death in "Star Trek Into Darkness."

A new viral clip has landed that's not all that dissimilar from the "Man Of Steel" Zod spot, with Cumberbatch's villain John Harrison spelling certain doom for the crew of the Enterprise. And no matter how this sequel turns out, it looks like Cumberbatch's turn will be more memorable than Eric Bana's baddie in "Star Trek."

"Star Trek Into Darkness" arrives on May 17th. Clip below and new image via MTV.
