Giancarlo Esposito Reveals He Will Be Appearing in a Marvel Project

Recently Giancarlo Esposito made headlines when he claimed that he would like to appear as Professor X in the MCU, but without the wheelchair, as he isn’t that old. Fans were divided on the matter since some still harbor hope that Patrick Stewart will be the MCU’s primary Charles Xavier despite him being killed during the events of ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.’

Now during a panel on Thunder Stage at CCXP Esposito confirmed that he will be appearing in the Marvel project, but also made it clear it’s not as Professor X.

Esposito claims that this role is different that it will come sooner rather than later, and that fans can expect something “better than you can imagine.” Knowing the MCU release schedule, the only movie being released this year is ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ so we can’t exactly rule out that Esposito might be appearing in that production, possibly as a variant of someone else or an original character.

It’s however more likely that he will be appearing in the 2025 movie, and there are plenty of them being scheduled for release ‘Blade,’ ‘Fantastic Four,’ ‘Captain America Brave New World,’ and ‘Thunderbolts*.’

Hopefully, Esposito did not “lie” about the release of the project being “sooner” rather than later. Esposito, renowned for his portrayal of Gus Fring in ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Better Call Saul,’ has also earned Emmy nominations for his role as Moff Gideon in ‘The Mandalorian.’ With a career spanning back to the ’70s, he’s showcased his talent in films like ‘The Usual Suspects’ and ‘The Jungle Book.’ Additionally, he’s ventured into Prime Video’s ‘The Boys,’ playing Stan Edgar, with plans to continue his role in the upcoming Season 4.
