Giancarlo Esposito had previously teased his MCU entry with Collider stating that he would break into the world "sooner than you think". Just weeks after the nudge, it was confirmed that he would appear in Captain America: Brave New World, which is about to be released on the next Valentine's Day. Now popular Hollywood insider, MyTimeToShineHello, has shared that the undisclosed character that Esposito is about to take on has an "N" in its name. 

"I'll give you a hint, there's an "N" in his name", shared the page. The X account also shared that it would reveal the full name of the character once it reached 160k followers, which is just 2k away. But for now, the "N" is the only breadcrumb fans have to chew on regarding Esposito's role. And they do not mind doing that.

In fact, fans have come up with a plethora of guesses as to which character Esposito would be seen stepping into the shoes of.

Fans guess Giancarlo Esposito's MCU role with the letter "N"

Giancarlo Esposito has already confirmed that the role he is about to take on would be "better than you can imagine" at CCXP in Mexico City. And it also seemed that the character he was talking about would be someone "original, and new, and fresh". This in a way ruled out the most talked-about roles for the Breaking Bad actor, including Kang and Professor X. Considering this, and keeping the letter "N" in mind, many fans guessed that it is Raul Bushman. 

MyTimeToShineHello, however, has earlier confirmed that Esposito will not be playing Bushman. Many fans also mentioned popular characters who have already had a face in cinematic versions, including Nick Fury, Magneto, and even some bizarre guesses like Iron Man.

Meanwhile, there were also some who were tired of the Hollywood insider being so cryptic and constantly engagement-baiting fans. They were convinced that MyTimeToShineHello knew nothing about the MCU casting at this point. However, with a 63.33% accuracy rate from 288 leaks, one cannot outright ignore the claims made by MyTimeToShineHello either.
