Comic book movie fans have been clamoring for a while now to see Giancarlo Esposito in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it’s safe to say the movement started after seeing his stellar performance as the villainous Moff Gideon in The Mandalorian.
Over the past three years, Esposito has become a favorite casting choice among fans, and many are convinced he would make a good hero or villain in the MCU. As for potential roles he could take on, characters ranging from Professor Charles Xavier to even Magneto have been discussed within the fandom.
Now, it looks like Kevin Feige is once again granting the collective wishes of the die-hard MCU fanbase and according to a new rumor, Esposito is in talks with Marvel Studios to finally join the billion-dollar franchise. According to Marvel scooper @CanWeGetToast, Giancarlo met with the studio “to discuss some roles” and according to their sources, playing Doctor Doom could be in his future.
