BREAKING BAD Star Bryan Cranston Is Still Hoping To Play X-MEN Villain Mister Sinister

In a new interview, Bryan Cranston has explained why playing someone like Jim Gordon doesn't appeal to him and makes it clear that he's still hoping to battle the X-Men as the villainous Mister Sinister.

It was way back in 2016 when X-Men: Apocalypse was released that Fox first teased the big screen debut of Mister Sinister and while we expected him to appear in Logan, Deadpool 2, and even Dark Phoenix, that still hasn't happened and it doesn't look like it will (unless he's being saved for Drew Goddard's X-Force, of course). 

Now, Bryan Cranston - who has been a fan-favourite choice for the role for a while - has once again said he would like to play a comic book movie villain and says that the character he'd like to suit up as will have to be "an antagonist a fraction smarter than the protagonist, never dumbed down to give the hero an easy win."
 
When it was then put to him that Mister Sinister fits the bill, he added: "Actually, that was the character, I’ll admit. Mister Sinister was the character I was thinking about."
 
Whether or not he'll get the chance to play the X-Men villain remains to be seen but with Marvel Studios looking to reboot the franchise, it could happen sooner rather than later. Regardless, Cranston went on to shed some light on why he turned down the role of Commissioner Gordon in Justice League last year.  

"I guess it’s a selfish standpoint. I don’t want to do a character that has been done several times before. I don’t want to be compared like 'well, his Commissioner Gordon was
yada yada yada.' I don’t want to do that. I want to take something that hasn’t been done."
