Since Marvel announced that it will make a reboot of The Fantastic Four, rumors have started to surround Giancarlo Esposito.
Following the big announcement from Marvel Studios, fans of The Fantastic Four are eager to see this reboot on the way. Disney acquired Fox last year and was thus able to regain the film rights to these characters. Now that they are within your reach, you just have to wait for this film to hit theaters. As a result of this news, rumors began to emerge and Giancarlo Esposito stars in one of them.
For a long time, The Fantastic Four were licensed on the big screen by Fox, a studio that managed to produce several major hits for these superheroes. After a while, Disney finally managed to keep the rights and plan a reboot for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Following this, the USA Online Sportsbooks site presented the possibility of Giancarlo Esposito becoming the MCU’s Doctor Doom.
Will we see it in the reboot?
The site mentions that Giancarlo Esposito, famous for being a part of Breaking Bad, The Boys, and The Mandalorian, has great potential to play Doctor Doom. It is about the arch-enemy of The Fantastic Four that we already saw in the comics and in film adaptations. Alternatives like Michael Fassbender and Viggo Mortensen have also been mentioned.
On the other hand, other rumors mentioned important characters from the Marvel world that could end up in the hands of Esposito, however, the study did not reveal details about the stars that will become part of the cast. Although the reboot of The Fantastic Four was confirmed a week ago, which took all fans by surprise, we will have to wait a long time to know some details or have news about this new movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
