THE BOYS Star Giancarlo Esposito Confirms He's Met With Marvel Studios; Hopes To Play MCU's Professor X

The Boys and The Mandalorian star Giancarlo Esposito is frequently suggested for a variety of superhero movie roles, and the actor has now weighed in on the fan-casts and shared some ideas of his own...

After putting himself on the map with a standout performance as Gus Fring in Breaking Bad, Giancarlo Esposito has become one of Hollywood's most in-demand actors. Recently, we've seen him steal the show in the likes of The Boys, Better Call Saul, and The Mandalorian, but when will he join the Marvel or DC Universe? 

Fans frequently suggest Esposito for a number of superhero movie roles, with most of them being villains (like Doctor Doom, for example). 

Those of you hoping to see Esposito's MCU debut eventually become a reality are likely to be pleased with this news, as the actor has now confirmed that he's met with Marvel Studios about a potential MCU role. "So, I have not worked for Marvel yet," Esposito said at the TJH Superhero Car Show & Comic Con in San Antonio, Texas. "I’ve been in a room with them and talked with them."

He didn't reveal who he's talked with them about, but did share some of the characters he's usually fan cast as before naming his personal favourite. "So, there’s been talk of Magneto, there’s been talk of Dr. Freeze, there has been talk of, who else are they talking about over there? Oh, Doom! And there is Professor X."

"Pick one? I’m going to go for something that is a little bit different. I’m going to go and put it out in the universe that it is Professor X."

Recently, there have been rumours that Marvel Studios is eyeing Esposito for the MCU's Charles Xavier, so perhaps there is something to it? He'd certainly be an exciting choice to follow in the footsteps of Sir Patrick Stewart by playing the leader of the X-Men, though we can't help but think what a fantastic Doctor Doom he would also make.

What do you guys think?
