    Esposito has proved himself to be a good villain in various films. The actor has also frequently shown interest in replacing James McAvoy and Sir Patrick Stewart as the next big-screen Professor Charles Xavier, but he wasn’t too thrilled about being bound to a wheelchair. However, the actor is now ready to take on a Marvel role which hasn’t been revealed yet. 

    During his appearance at Thunder Stage at CCXP (via Collider), Esposito confirmed the news of joining MCU and the actor has assured the role is not related to Professor X. “I cannot promise you it’ll be Professor X, because here’s what I think,” said Esposito about his role in the movie.

    He further added, “I think that there’s something about being original. We’ve seen different versions of Professor X. Wouldn’t you like to see me play a character in a Marvel movie who is original, and new, and fresh? So, mark my words: This will happen sooner than you think.”

    Earlier, there were some expectations that Esposito might play the role of Professor X in a new X-Men movie. This isn’t a rumor but a fact because the actor made it clear to Marvel that he would like to play the role of Professor X. However, much has changed since Marvel has made various changes in their storylines, hence a different role could be expected for Esposito.
