Cranston Wants To Play X-Men’s Mr. Sinister

A few days ago actor Bryan Cranston excited the Marvel fanboys with word that he was keen on playing a Marvel villain. At the time he told UK trade Metro: “You know what I’d like to do? I’d like to do some big superhero villain in some Marvel classic.”

Now though, the “Breaking Bad” actor has gone one step further and revealed which particular role it is he would like to tackle. Appearing at the New York Comic Con panel for the upcoming animated comedy series “SuperMansion” in which he plays an aging superhero, Screen Rant reports that he was asked to elaborate on that earlier quote.

He responded that he wants to play the X-Men villain Mr. Sinister, asking the crowd what they thought which scored a superb reception. In the comics, the character is not only a scientific genius but has numerous powers including telepathy, telekinesis, teleportation, regeneration, shapeshifting, and has complete control of his body at the cellular level making him almost invulnerable and immortal.

Cranston marks the latest actor to effectively put their hand up for a specific superhero role, following in the wake of Ronda Rousey for Captain Marvel and Tyrese Gibson for Green Lantern.
