A few new stills from J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness have been released, showing Kirk (Chris Pine) facing off with the mysterious baddie John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch).

These latest shots reveal a scene where Kirk, sporting some cuts and scrapes on his face, looks pure evil in the eye via Benedict Cumberbatch’s baddie, who could be Khan. Or not. It gets confusing. It’s hard to make out the background in the shot, but the light fixtures indicate it could be the medical bay. Considering Kirk’s superficial wounds, that would make some sense.

Regardless, it looks like the two will be getting some real face time where they are not separated by a glass prison.

The other pic shows Kirk looking intent while Spock (Zachary Quinto) seems to be talking to him. Judging by the look on Pine’s face, you’d have to think Kirk is piecing together an idea in his head that is probably just crazy enough to work.

We still have a few months to go until Darkness’ May 17 release date, so check out the pics below and give us your best guess at what’s going on.
