In conversation with Marvel, F. Murray Abraham stated he feels “strongly” about Khonshu and hopes to reprise his role in the future.
Oh, Khonshu’s a treat. He’s fun. That’s really one of the things that people forget about, in the work we do, is we talk about how hard this is and what we have to accomplish, but it’s also fun. That’s what people seem to forget.
And that’s another thing about Khonshu — he’s really fun. He’s dangerous. Also, it’s touching sometimes because he’s really willing to sacrifice himself. That’s something that you and I didn’t talk about, but the fact is that that’s very unselfish of him. He really cares. I feel that that’s one of the sources of his power, that he is willing to demand of everyone else the same thing that he’s demanding of himself. And that’s sacrifice. And I love that about him. It’s honorable. I don’t want to make it more than it is, but I’m telling you I feel that strongly about him. I happen to like the character very much.
