“In the Marvel Universe if you do something in television, one character, you can’t switch and play a different character,” Esposito said. “So, from that meeting, which was really wonderful, I had some interest in doing something with him that he’s done since, I think it was Loki at the time, and someone else has done Loki, it’s great. It’s in television and I want to be invited to the table to do something in film because I have a big personality and I’ve been in the television world for a while and I still get a few movies every year.”
Also, during his appearance at the convention, Esposito stated that the one character he would like to play in the MCU is Professor X and teased how he would portray the iconic X-Men character should he be given a chance.
“I would play that character with force, grace and calmness,” Esposito said. “Someone who controls chaos but who also has the ability to uplift and inspire.”
Last week, Esposito said in a video shared to TikTok that he was in talks with Marvel and expressed his desire to play Professor X, a character who recently made his MCU debut, though a in an alternate universe Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Portrayed by Patrick Stewart.
“So, I haven’t worked for Marvel yet,” the actor revealed. “I’ve been in a room with them and talked with them, and to answer your question, I think what they do is along the lines of that mythical journey that Joe Campbell talked about. , which was a friend of George Lucas. George Lucas put in his stories. They do the same thing.”
“So, talking about Magneto, talking about Dr. Freeze, talking about who else are they talking about? Oh, Doom! And there’s Professor X. Pick one? I’m going for something that’s a little different. I’m going to go and put it in-universe that it’s Professor X. Esposito added.
For now, it’s unclear whether there are any plans or ongoing talks about Esposito joining the MCU, though we do have an idea of the direction Marvel Studios is headed over the next few years.
