Disney+’s upcoming “Mephisto” special starring Sacha Baron Cohen is rumored to be currently filming

Disney+’s upcoming “Mephisto” special starring Sacha Baron Cohen is rumored to be currently filming.

English actor Sacha Baron Cohen, best known for playing the role of Borat in two movies in 'Borat' series, is reportedly in talks to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As per Deadline, if the negotiations go through, Cohen will play the role of Mephisto, a demonic character who was earlier rumoured to debut in 'WandaVision'. Deadline report said Mephisto will be the main villain of the Disney+ MCU series 'Ironheart'. The series will star Dominique Thorne in the role of titular superheroine Riri Williams. If a deal is finalised, Cohen will also appear in 'WandaVision' spinoff 'Agatha: Coven of Chaos'.

Information reads: "A ‘MEPHISTO’ Disney+ special is reportedly being filmed in secret on the set of 'AGATHA: COVEN OF CHAOS'!🔮
Sacha Baron Cohen is rumored to play the role." 

An upcoming project that could see Mephisto finally pop up is Agatha: Coven of Chaos due to the devil's importance in Agatha's comics story. However, reports earlier this month indicated that Cohen could be in talks to play Mephisto in the Ironheart series. Ironheart recently wrapped filming, and is slated for a fall 2023 release. Though Marvel has yet to comment on the rumors of Cohen's casting, a new fan art allows audiences to picture the actor in the villainous rule. 

Digital creator 83 Pixel Studios posted the art depicting Cohen as Mephisto via Instagram. The fiery photo sees Cohen, who often stars in comedic roles and is best known for portraying Borat, in a dark red velvety cloak. His skin also takes on a red hue, with sharpened facial features, yellow eyes, and black hair rounding out all of Mephisto's classic features. The post also includes an MCU Ironheart character poster with Cohen as Mephisto. Being a demonic entity, Mephisto has numerous magical powers. He has superhuman strength, shape-shifting ability, can create realistic illusions, manipulate emotions, memories, and play with the concept of time. Even when his corporeal form is destroyed he will reform and renew in his own realm. He is certainly going to be a formidable foe for Marvel superheroes.

Meanwhile, Cohen was last seen in the sequel to 2006 film 'Borat'. Titled 'Borat Subsequent Moviefilm', he reprised the role of fictional Kazakh journalist Borat Sagdiyev. The film was critically acclaimed. He also lent his voice to the character Uncle Ugo in the Pixar movie 'Luca'.

Mephisto was created by Stan Lee and John Buscema. They based the character on Mephistopheles from the Faust legend (the one from Faustian bargain). Mephisto was first introduced as an enemy of Silver Surfer and Ghost Rider. But he has since then also come into conflict with Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Doctor Doom, and so on.

Earlier, Peter Fonda and Ciaran Hinds have portrayed Mephisto in 'Ghost Rider' (2007) and 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance' (2011), respectively. Though Cohen's involvement with the MCU is not confirmed, nor is Mephisto's presence in Ironheart, the actor certain looks the part in this post. If Mephisto were to appear in Ironheart, he would likely serve as a replacement for the demon Dormammu, who gives Parker Robbins/the Hood (Anthony Ramos) his powers in the comics. The Hood is confirmed in Ironheart, which has sparked rumors of Daredevil (Charlie Cox) possibly appearing in the upcoming series as well. If Mephisto were to take Dormammu's place in Ironheart, he could possess Parker or possibly make a deal with him in exchange for his soul.
