Big names join Marvel’s D23 Expo rumors

Not very long ago, we saw the grand SDCC 22 which featured Marvel announcing its whole glorious Phase 5 and 6 plans thereby teasing several exciting events in the MCU. While most of the projects were announced, they didn’t hint anything about the casting. Now if the sources are to be believed, MCU’s going to present to us a wide array of stars in the upcoming phases. This includes names such as Henry Cavill, Giancarlo Esposito, Denzel Washington, and John Boyega.

According to radio broadcaster Emmet Kennedy, he has some reliable claims regarding wild casting rumors in MCU. He took to his Twitter account to share that he has reliable claims that this list of actors will be introduced at the D23 Expo. Even though it may sound too good to be true, the list includes Henry Cavill, Denzel Washington, Giancarlo Esposito, John Boyega, Jodie Comer, Daisy Edgar-Jones, and John Krasinski.


While some of them count in the list of long-time speculations by the fans, some names surprise us. Although it is possible that this is nothing more than hype building game, we can’t be completely sure until some official information is received.

It is a notable fact that even though the list looks interesting, the case is not as simple as it seems. On one hand, Henry Cavill has been making rounds of the MCU rumor table for a long time. As some say, he is going to be Hyperion, some think it’s Reed Richards or Sentry. Similar is the case of Giancarlo Esposito who is also rumored of discussing with MCU a role for a long time.

Some sources claim that Esposito will probably play Professor Charles Xavier while others also claimed that the Breaking Bad star is actually playing Doctor Doom. Nevertheless, his casting is very near to reality, especially after the range of rumors we’ve had and his own confirmation regarding meeting Marvel Studios execs for a possible role.

But the tweet started to raise some questions as it was repeatedly reported that MCU may not want to move on with John Krasinski as Mister Fantastic. And the same problem even rises with John Boyega as very recently the Star Wars actor expressed that he doesn’t want to work at Marvel now.

“That’s not in the vision for me now,” Boyega responded when asked if he is joining the MCU. “I want to do nuanced things. I want to donate my services to original indie films that come with new, fresh ideas, because I know it’s real hard to top Iron Man in that universe.”

So it will be extremely interesting to find out if it marks a new bright era for MCU or if is it simply Emmet Kennedy going Andrew Garfield mode.

D23 Expo 2022 will be held from September 9, 2022, to September 11, 2022
