Giancarlo Esposito’s Secret Marvel Project Revealed – It’s ‘Captain America: Brave New World’

Giancarlo Esposito Talks About How 'Breaking Bad' Literally Saved His Life

Recently, Giancarlo Esposito made headlines by saying he wants to play Professor X in the MCU, but without the wheelchair since he isn’t that old. Fans are divided because some still hope Patrick Stewart will be the main Charles Xavier in the MCU, despite his character’s death in ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.’

During a panel at CCXP’s Thunder Stage, Esposito confirmed he will appear in a Marvel project, but clarified it won’t be as Professor X.

A few days ago at the Phoenix Fusion Event, Esposito revealed that his MCU role will eventually lead to a Disney+ series.

The MCU has knocked on my door and it’s a role you won’t predict. It will be teased and there will be a series afterwards.

According to Murphy’s Multiverse, Esposito will debut in ‘Captain America: Brave New World,’ playing a villainous role added by Matthew Orton.

Orton joined the project after poor test screenings delayed the movie for over a year from its original release date. Audiences disliked the action scenes, the romance between the leads, and the political themes, finding them boring instead of engaging. Orton made significant changes, including introducing Esposito’s character.

Esposito hinted that his role is different and will appear sooner rather than later, promising something “better than you can imagine.” Fans have speculated about him playing Doctor Doom, among other roles, but it seems he will be playing another villain instead.
