Emmy-nominated actor Giancarlo Esposito (“Breaking Bad,” “The Jungle Book”) was reportedly offered a role on a Marvel TV show, but ultimately turned it down because he knew the character would never appear in a Marvel movie.
The “Son of Batman” voice actor revealed in an interview with ComicBook.com, “I know the Marvel world exists on the Disney lot. I love those guys at Marvel. We’ve been trying to figure out how to collaborate on something.”
Esposito continued, “I’m hoping that it is something. They came to me with something for their television department, then I realized if I did that, I’d never be able to have that same character be in that film department. Once you’re in a Marvel character in the television version, you have to stay in the particular character. They can’t carry that over to film.”
Though Esposito clearly wants to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it seems he’s set his sights on a role in on of the films, rather than on TV. Whether or not that desire gets fulfilled is still up in the air.
The next Marvel Cinematic Universe film, “Doctor Strange,” hits theaters on November 4.
