"Breaking Bad's" Bryan Cranston Wants to Play a "Nasty" Marvel Villain

As the morally oblique Walter White, actor Bryan Cranston made a name for himself on "Breaking Bad." Right around the time the show was wrapping up in 2013, rumors began to fly that he'd play Lex Luthor in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," and fans screamed a collective "yes, please!" But, those screams fell on deaf ears and Cranston moved on to other projects.

Despite several years as one of the baddest men on TV, Cranston isn't done with villains. In fact, he's been kicking around the idea of playing a larger-than-life villain for Marvel Studios according to Metro.co.uk.

At a recent press junket for his new film, "Trumbo," Cranston told Metro, "You know what I'd like to do? I'd like to do some big superhero villain in some Marvel classic." But the actor doesn't just want any old nemesis. "Create one from scratch... I don't know what I would do but it would be nasty," added Cranston.

With his new stop-motion animated series, "SuperMansion," Cranston has entered the superhero biosphere as Titanium Rex, an aging, behind-the-times caped hero who leads a group of up-and-coming Millenials calling themselves the League of Freedom. Maybe it took playing a superhero for Cranston to learn villains have all the fun and he can find a way to create a Heisenberg-level antagonist for Marvel.
