With rumours still swirling that Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen will play the MCU's Mephisto in Ironheart, another upcoming project the villain will appear in has also been revealed. Read on for details...

Earlier this year, a very interesting rumour started doing the rounds which claimed that Sacha Baron Cohen will play Mephisto in Disney+'s Ironheart. While the news still hasn't been confirmed, this is a perfect casting decision on Marvel Studios' part, and one we definitely hope to see pan out. 

Remember, it's previously been reported that Ironheart will feature a clash of technology and magic, with The Hood likely striking a deal with the demon so he can acquire the powers needed to defeat the hero and establish a criminal empire.

We have to imagine Mephisto has bigger ambitions than just helping him, and chances are we'll learn more about what those are in Agatha: Coven of Chaos based on this rumour. As you can see below, the latest claim from scooper @MyTimeToShineH is that Cohen has also shot scenes for the series. 

Common sense says Mephisto has ties to both Agatha Harkness and other witches who appear in the Disney+ series, and we can't imagine the demon is best pleased with the Darkhold's destruction at the Scarlet Witch's hands. Elizabeth Olsen is also rumoured to appear in the WandaVision spin-off, albeit for a single episode.

Hopefully, these appearances are setting the stage for even bigger things for Mephisto in the MCU. He's battled The Avengers, matched wits with Loki, and even stole Spider-Man's marriage. 

Following WandaVision's release, fans made it clear they want to see Mephisto on screen. While it's possible this was always the plan, Marvel Studios has clearly taken note, and Cohen looks set to put a suitably bonkers and sinister spin on the character that we're sure will see him interact with all manner of heroes and villains on Earth-616. 

Ironheart is set to be released on Disney+ sometime in 2023. As for Agatha: Coven of Chaos, that's currently expected to hit the streaming platform late 2023/early 2024.

I'll believe it when I see it. Not falling into the hype of this again.
Drace24 - 12/22/2022, 7:56 AM
@CorndogBurglar - If this is true the hype would be retroactively justified. lol
CorndogBurglar - 12/22/2022, 8:44 AM
@Drace24 - LOL. Thats a new one. "Retroactive justification". I like that.

@CorndogBurglar - MTTSH has been right on the money with a lot of things. The things she gets wrong are often later confirmed to have been scrapped like Iron Monger and Balder originally being in the Illuminati
The1st - 12/22/2022, 12:44 PM
@CorndogBurglar - I miss the it's not Mephisto memes. I look forward to the oh, it is Mephisto ones.
Relugus - 12/23/2022, 9:46 AM
@CorndogBurglar - The writer of this article thinks Mephisto wrote the Darkhold, which shows how ignorant he is.

Chthon is the creator of chaos magic and the Darkhold, and gave Wanda a fraction of his essence, enabling her to wield his magic.
CorndogBurglar - 12/23/2022, 9:57 AM
@Relugus - I know that. But it isn't out of the realm of possibility to think the MCU could change that.
MILESSPIDERMAN - 12/22/2022, 7:07 AM
Can't wait to see Riri again, loved her in BP2.
bobevanz - 12/22/2022, 7:11 AM
Rumors mean nothing to me unless it's legit confirmed
Vigor - 12/22/2022, 7:51 AM
@bobevanz - then they become a different word entirely. Leaks
Drace24 - 12/22/2022, 9:15 AM
@Vigor - Studios "leak" information on purpose to control the narrative. We live in the age of Guerilla Marketing.
DCfan84 - 12/22/2022, 7:15 AM
This Again?

ObserverIO - 12/22/2022, 7:17 AM
Oh [frick].

More Love and Thunder shit.
Drace24 - 12/22/2022, 7:58 AM
@ObserverIO - Remember when the Community guys made Winter Soldier, Civil War, Infinity War and Engame?
DrReedRichards - 12/22/2022, 7:20 AM
The rumor mill has become more of a nuisance than a hype machine. Too much made-up bullshit with little to no payoff.
JFerguson - 12/22/2022, 7:46 AM
This is all building up to MCU phase 7, which will be Spider-Man-centric and directly adapt One More Day
SuperiorHeckler - 12/22/2022, 8:05 AM
Introducing one of the cosmic/supernatural heavyweights in a Disney+ series for a C-List character is kinda' of a let-down TBH. The Big Evil M deserves more respect IMO. 🫤
bkmeijer1 - 12/22/2022, 8:26 AM
@SuperiorHeckler - I don't care where he's introduced, as long as the Midnight Sons take him on in a movie
FreelancePeacekeeper - 12/22/2022, 8:19 AM
Aubrey Plaza as Blackheart confirmed

Relugus - 12/23/2022, 9:53 AM
@FreelancePeacekeeper - More likely Lilith or Morgan Le Fay.

She might even be Chthon.
bkmeijer1 - 12/22/2022, 8:25 AM
About time we'd continue our WandaVision theories about Mephisto. Waited long enough
Relugus - 12/23/2022, 9:40 AM
@bkmeijer1 - WandaVision set-up Chthon, not Mephisto.

bkmeijer1 - 12/23/2022, 11:17 AM
@Relugus - it kinda did, but the (rampant) speculation on this site around that time was solely focused on Mephisto
Reginator - 12/22/2022, 8:46 AM
mephisto has been in every marvel D+ show. If you haven't seen him you are just not looking hard enough.
slickrickdesigns - 12/22/2022, 8:49 AM
Borat as Mephisto makes me think they(MCU) won’t be taking the character seriously.
comicfan100 - 12/22/2022, 9:09 AM
@slickrickdesigns - I remember people said the same thing about the sparkly vampire playing Batman...
Relugus - 12/23/2022, 9:48 AM
@slickrickdesigns - Especially as the much more powerful Chthon has already been teased.
DocSpock - 12/22/2022, 8:54 AM


It's sad the MCU is going to throw away great villain Mephisto on crap like this.

And to prove how seriously they aren't taking him, they are gonna use a$$clown Cohen in the role. Why would the MCU even want this idiot?

Then again, it's a Wilding article. Let's hope that none of this is true.

Should have introduced him in Wandavision then I will have believed Wanda turning to the dark side a lil better because Mephisto may have corrupted her
