If Giancarlo Esposito is going to the MCU, he should play Doctor Doom.
He would absolutely crush that role & they could keep him for a long time.
Make Doctor Doom the next big villain for the Avengers. (like how Thanos was) pic.twitter.com/HA1vpqwQ6i

when the MCU and Sony get around to casting Norman Osborn the only logical choice is Giancarlo Esposito.
Thank you for agreeing with my tweet.

Can you guys imagine Giancarlo Esposito playing the MCU's Professor X and Bryan Cranston – Magneto?

If they wanted to bring in Doctor Octopus into the MCU, I can't think of a better actor to play him than Giancarlo Esposito
