A veteran actor may be heading to the superhero sub-genre. MCU Cosmic reports that Giancarlo Esposito is up for a major role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Breaking Bad actor may have already had discussions with Marvel Studios regarding the mystery character. It’s not clear who it is but guesses range from Blue Marvel to Norman Osborn.
A recent casting breakdown from GeeksWorldWide revealed the studio is looking for an actor around Esposito’s age to play a “benefactor” in an unnamed major motion picture. With that being said, if the actor is indeed being courted for a big role we can only speculate at this point who exactly it could be.
In addition to Breaking Bad, Esposito recently appeared in Amazon’s The Boys and will be seen later this year in the first live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian. He’s played villains extraordinarily well for years now, a potential indication of the type of role he could play in the MCU.
