Don't expect Bob Odenkirk to appear in a superhero movie anytime soon. Speaking to The Independent, the Breaking Bad and Lucky Hank actor was asked about the potential for him to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe following his celebrated performance in the action movie Nobody. Odenkirk said he's not a good match for the superhero movie world.

"I always like to keep things grounded, relatable, and smaller. I don't think I'm built for that world," he said (via IndieWire). "I'm built for characters that make you feel like that guy could live next door."

Odenkirk starred in the 2021 movie Nobody, a film based on his own traumatic experiences of having a gun to his head and the time his home was broken into. Odenkirk did extensive physical stunts in Nobody, and a sequel is now in the works. Odenkirk told The Independent about the sequel, "I care about this more than you could imagine."

Odenkirk is perhaps best known for playing the lawyer Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. Before he landed that role, Odenkirk was more well known for his comedic projects like Saturday Night Live, Mr. Show, and The Ben Stiller Show. He auditioned for the role of Michael Scott on the American version of The Office.

Odenkirk's latest project is the TV series Lucky Hank, which premiered in March on AMC. Odenkirk will star in a remake of Tommy Wiseau's The Room in the lead role of Johnny.
