“I’m a real badass”

Deadline questions the actor and asks what he can say about his character in Captain America: Brave New World and how it compares to his character in Maxxxine.

“Oh, it differs immensely,” says Esposito. “In my other life, I’m a real badass. You’ve seen me play a little bit of that intellectually as Gus Fring. When you see me in the MCU, you’re going to see a badass, and I’m excited for that.”

Esposito continues with a tease of the physical aspects of his mystery character in Captain America: Brave New World.

“Acting is using every part of your body, your emotions, your senses, your feelings to portray something,” he explains. “You haven’t seen me really use my body in a way I’ll be using it. The MCU is exciting. I can’t tell you who I play, but you’re gonna be excited when you see it.”
