First poster for Star Trek Into Darkness

Paramount has revealed the first teaser poster for Star Trek Into Darkness a week before the preview will be shown before The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in IMAX. Like seemingly every other teaser poster ever made, it features a character looking over his back at the viewer mysteriously. The man in the poster is none other than Benedict Cumberbatch, looking like an evil Superman standing in the rubble.

The Batman-esque poster is below:

Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
