Last August, a rumor popped up that Breaking Bad‘s Giancarlo Esposito was up for a big role with Marvel Studios. Since then he’s appeared in The Mandalorian for Disney, but things on the Marvel side have been pretty quiet in regards to that rumor. Until today.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight timed to the announcement of FarCry 6, Giancarlo Esposito was asked about the rumors of him being involved with Marvel and he said:
“Well there’s been all these rumors about being with Marvel, I want to work with those guys. I put it out there all the time. I haven’t created any of those rumors, but I worked years ago with Louis D’Esposito, who’s one of the guys at Marvel, back when he was doing Cotton Club and I was doing Cotton Club, he was the First AD. What they do is fantastic, and I want to do something enduring with them… I think the Marvel world would be, likely, the next step for me…”
If he wants to do something enduring with Marvel, there are a lot of great villains on the way from whoever “The Benefactor” ends up being, to possibly someone like Norman Osborn, or even Magneto…
