Sasha Baron Cohen is reportedly in talks to star as the villainous Mephisto in the MCU, starting on Ironheart. Since Phase 4 began, the MCU has continued to expand with more films as well as TV shows helping flesh out the beloved franchise. While they are in the midst of The Multiverse Saga, one character that many have continued to speculate about making his MCU debut is the super-villain Mephisto.
Theories primarily began on WandaVision where some believed that the MCU was getting ready to introduce the Marvel demon. While WandaVision never saw that come to fruition, it hasn’t stopped theories about Mephisto eventually making his way into the interconnected universe.
However, it appears Mephisto might finally be on his way to the MCU as Deadline Hollywood reports that Sasha Baron Cohen is reportedly in talks to portray the character for Ironheart. Rumors first emerged last week that the actor was set to portray the iconic villain on the upcoming Disney+ series, Ironheart, which recently wrapped filming. At the time of writing, Marvel Studios and Cohen’s representatives have refused to comment if he is playing Mephisto or even starring in Ironheart.
