Watch: Benedict Cumberbatch’s Deleted ‘Star Trek’ Shower Scene

Director J.J. Abrams aired the clip on 'Conan' in response to controversy surrounding a scene with Alice Eve.

Star Trek Into Darkness” has been in theaters for a week now, but the sci-fi sequel is still creating controversy with both casual and hardcore fans. The most recent talking point surfaced this week when some audience members responded angrily to a gratuitous shot of Alice Eve’s character in her underwear.

A number of people involved with the film, including writer Damon Lindelof in an interview with MTV News’ Josh Horowitz, have spoken about the shot. Wednesday night, director J.J. Abrams appeared on “Conan” to address the controversy and attempt to make amends with a deleted scene that featured an equally gratuitous shot, one of Benedict Cumberbatch’s villain in the shower.
