Moon Knight Cast F. Murray Abraham As Khonshu | Screen Rant

Academy Award-winning actor F. Murray Abraham has joined the cast of Moon Knight as the character Khonshu. Moon Knight will premiere on Disney+ and feature Oscar Isaac as Marc Spector, a mercenary with dissociative identity disorder who becomes the conduit for the Egyptian Moon god Khonshu. The series marks the first MCU project of 2022 and the character of Moon Knight is expected to appear in various other MCU films and television shows.

Now, Disney officially reveals (via IGN) that Abraham has been cast as the voice of Khonshu in Moon Knight. The actor is a renowned star of the stage and screen, and has appeared in high profile projects such as Amadeus, Scarface, All the President's Men, and The Grand Budapest Hotel. The actor has also appeared in the television series Homeland and can currently be seen on the AppleTV+ series Mythic Quest.

Abraham is one of many prestigious actors to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as the franchise has previously enlisted talents like Robert Redford, Glenn Close, and Tony Leung, just to name a few. Abraham is known for his distinct voice, so casting him as the the powerful Egyptian god is a smart move on Marvel's part that will lend a sense of gravitas to the character. With rumors that the panther goddess Bast will appear in Thor: Love and Thunder among various other deities, there is a possibility that Abraham will reprise his role as Khonshu in that project as well, following Moon Knight.
