Breaking Bad star Giancarlo Esposito says he wants to work in a Marvel Cinematic Universe film.

The actor, who played the villainous meth baron and fried chicken restaurateur Gus Fring in the acclaimed AMC crime series, said being cast in an MCU movie is the "the next step" for him.

"Well there's been all these rumours about being with Marvel, I want to work with those guys. I put it out there all the time.

"I haven't created any of those rumours, but I worked years ago with Louis D'Esposito, who's one of the guys at Marvel, back when he was doing Cotton Club (New York nightclub) and I was doing Cotton Club, he was the First AD," Esposito told Entertainment Tonight.

The 62-year-old actor said he wants have an "enduring" partnership with the studio, known for churning out big-budget superhero action films.

"What they do is fantastic, and I want to do something enduring with them... I think the Marvel world would be, likely, the next step for me..." he added.

Esposito also reprised his Breaking Bad character for its prequel spin-off Better Call Saul.

The actor will voice the main antagonist Anton Castillo in the upcoming video game 'Far Cry 6'.
