Knowing Shatner's ego, he probably thinks he should.

I thought JJ said that he had tried to figure a way to get him in the movie, but couldn't do it without it seeming forced. I don't want him in the movie just so he'll be in the movie, personally.

Cameos can ruin perfectly decent movie scenes (look at Stan Lee) leave Shatman out of it.

His character is no more; passed on. He has expired and gone to meet his maker. He is a dead captain; a stiff. He has rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. THIS IS AN EX-PARRO...( er, Captain.) big grin

Spock died and came back next picture, thanks to the effect of the Genesis planet, and using Vulcan touch to transfer his mind to McCoy. Kirk died in Generations, and three pictures later was still dead. Too bad.

There are countless ensigns that can prove you wrong.

Tasha Yar (Denise Crosby) died in STNG, then came back in an alternate timeline episode, only to be sent off to her presumed death and then Denise Crosby came back as her half Romulan daughter for the final twist.

As much as I love Shatner, this movie is NOT about William Shatner. He should not be in this. I understand why Nimoy is in this, but there is no rhyme or reason for "old" Kirk to appear.

I would have liked Shatner worked in somehow. I won't lose sleep over him not appearing though.

No. Time to pass the torch.

Seeing any of the old crew would just make it harder for me to get into the new players.

That's because you're not Shatner-tastic!

stick out tongue

Word is, JJ kicked Shatner off the set, he was meddling (as Shatner does) with the way JJ was filming. So no Shatner cameo.

The PC version of it reads as:

"It was very tricky. We actually had written a scene with him in it that was a flashback kind of thing, but the truth is, it didn't quite feel right. The bigger thing was that he was very vocal that he didn't want to do a cameo. We tried desperately to put him in the movie, but he was making it very clear that he wanted the movie to focus on him significantly, which, frankly, he deserves. The truth is, the story that we were telling required a certain adherence to the Trek canon and consistency of storytelling. It's funny -- a lot of the people who were proclaiming that he must be in this movie were the same people saying it must adhere to canon. Well, his character died on screen. Maybe a smarter group of filmmakers could have figured out how to resolve that." -JJ Abrams
