Star Trek Into Darkness director has revealed that while the franchise has done a lot to advance equality, still has a way to go in the portrayal of female characters.

In a recent interview with News Network Australia, Abrams said that "there needs to be more" roles for women in the upcoming Star Trek sequels:

It's critical to me and it's true that when I wrote the pilot for Alias, or Felicity or Lost that female roles be as important as any other role. But I think in Star Trek, while Zoe gets to do a couple of pretty cool things that are way above and beyond what you ever got to see in the original show...there needs to be more of that and more of her.

Does this mean that there'll be just as much in his underwear as there is ? Here's hoping!

Are you excited for Star Trek Into Darkness's May 17th arrival?
