The blink-and-you-miss-it scene where Alice Eve strips down to her underwear and changes into her space suit in the same shuttle as Captain Kirk was one of the rare incredible parts of Star Trek Into Darkness, so of course writer Damon Lindelof is apologizing for it now and wishes it never happened because your crushed nerd-dreams are his food:
- I copped to the fact that we should have done a better job of not being gratuitous in our representation of a barely clothed actress.
- We also had Kirk shirtless in underpants in both movies. Do not want to make light of something that some construe as mysogenistic.
- What I’m saying is I hear you, I take responsibility and will be more mindful in the future.
- Also, I need to learn how to spell “misogynistic.”
And while this doesn’t bode well for the probably J.J. Abrams-less Star Trek III, it was however in reference to Lindelof’s Grantland interview where he makes it clear he has nothing to do with Star Wars: Episode VII. So I guess that makes up for not seeing Alice Eve’s boobs in space again. *looks down at penis wearing Vulcan ears* Seriously? This is that big of a deal to you that you’re going to make me say it? Goddammit.
