Fans may be used to seeing Esposito play villains, but the actor wants to take a turn as the founder of the X-Men.

It seems most high-profile actors are making their way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and now Giancarlo Esposito is hinting that he'd like to join the MCU.

In a TikTok posted by coundownsitygeeks, Esposito was shown taking the stage at the TJH Superhero Car Show & Comic Con in San Antonio, Texas. Responding to a fan question, Esposito said that while the internet would love to see him as an iconic villain like Magneto, or even Doctor Doom, he'd love to play Professor X.

“I have not worked for Marvel yet. I've been in the room with them and talked to them,” Esposito said, “I'm gonna go for something that's a little bit different. I'm gonna go and put it out in the universe that [I'd like to play] Professor X.”

Esposito is best known for his role as Gus Fring in Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. He has also appeared in The Boys and The Mandalorian. Video game fans will also recognize him in Far Cry 6, where he plays the main villain Anton Castillo. The actor is often cast as the bid bag, so a turn as Professor X would be a shakeup for him and for fans.

Charles Xavier is the founder and occasional leader of the X-Men in Marvel Comics. On the big screen, both Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy played the character in Fox's X-Men universe. Stewart briefly reprised the role in Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness, but that appearance is best described as no more than a cameo. So, we're still waiting for the MCU's version of Professor X to arrive.

Who Will Be the New Avengers in the MCU?

Fans have been waiting for mutants to join the MCU ever since Disney's acquisition of Fox in 2019. While we haven't seen any X-Men show up outside of cameos, the Ms. Marvel Disney+ series did make a big reference toward the group of superhero mutants.

We know that the MCU's Phase 6 includes a Fantastic Four movie and two Avengers films, so it's possible that whatever comes after The Infinity Saga could be the big arrival party for the MCU's mutants. While fans wait for more info about X-Men in the MCU, they can look forward to the X-Men '97 series coming to Disney+ next year.
