J.J. Abrams has admitted that casting the iconic Star Wars character Khan would be a major challenge.

Despite making this admission the Lost creator did not reveal whether the villain would appear in the nex Star Trek movie.

J.J. Abrams was behind the franchise reboot earlier this year which saw the crew of the Enterprise set off on their maiden voyage.

In an interview with MTV the filmmaker said: "I think one of the by-products of doing this movie was we were able to dispel the obvious and understandable concerns - how can Star Trek possibly exist without those original cast members?" he told MTV.

"Now that we are in a parallel existence with what fans of the original series love so much, we could introduce any number of characters, settings, references and situations that the original series introduced.

"Dealing with Khan would certainly be a challenge, but we had an equal challenge in finding our crew of the Enterprise."

The movie was a huge critical success and grossed over $384 million, making back it's $150 million budget.

The recasting of popular characters such as Kirk and Spock, which saw Chris Pine and Zachary Qunito take on the famous roles, was a hit and there were immediate talks of a sequel.
