I’m worried for John Cho, he’s got like two more interview questions about JJ before he goes out of control and unleashes righteous words of anger
and then in the next movie, the only mention of Sulu will be a scene where Chekov and someone are casually talking
"oh, didn’t you hear? he quit Starfleet to garden exotic plants instead. but hey, meet our new helmsman portrayed by some generic crusty white dude."
maybe that’s how we’ll get Gary Mitchell, who the fuck knows
