By BRANDON SHOAFF
Giancarlo Esposito has starred in a number of high-profile shows, from “Breaking Bad” to “The Mandalorian.” Due to his popularity, and despite Esposito passing on the Marvel Disney+ series “Loki,” fans have long clamored for him to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in some capacity.
During a recent appearance at Rose City Comic-Con, Esposito explained his pursuit of the MCU, "so the last year [..] I said, 'I'd love to be in the Marvel Universe.' [Then] the fan casting started to blow up that they'd like to see me play Professor X.”
Esposito continued, “It got so huge, I finally had to have my people call Marvel and explain that, you know, that this is a fan want and we would love to work with you. And [Marvel Studios isn't] quite ready to get into that conversation. But when they are, I am here."
