Actor Giancarlo Esposito has stated that a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is where he sees his future.

The interview was released yesterday to coincide with the announcement that he will play the main antagonist in the upcoming Far Cry 6 game scheduled to release in 2021. Towards the end of the video, Esposito was asked about rumours linking him with a role in the MCU as well as if he had a dream role. The actor’s reply is below:

Well there’s been all these rumors about being with Marvel, I want to work with those guys. I put it out there all the time. I haven’t created any of those rumors, but I worked years ago with Louis D’Esposito, who’s one of the guys at Marvel, back when he was doing Cotton Club and I was doing Cotton Club, he was the First AD. What they do is fantastic, and I want to do something enduring with them… I think the Marvel world would be, likely, the next step for me, and then I would step back into playing some characters who I think really did change the world with their actions.”
