What concerns me with the sequel is, after listening to the commentary where they talk about the post-crefits sequence that they were considering doing, coupled with typical Hollywood expectations - is that there is likely a fifty fifty chance they will not be able to resist putting Khan into the next movie.
Perhaps. Khan is pretty iconic as far as villains go...
But they also said they dropped the idea of that post-credit sequence (showing the Botany Bay
) because they didn't want to be limited in their options and alternatives.
