It seems that “Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston has been bitten by the bad-guy bug.

After earning critical and fan adoration for his turn as the meth-dealing Walter White on AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” Cranston told U.K. outlet Metro that he harbors a desire to play a supervillain.

“You know what I’d like to do? I’d like to do some big superhero villain in some Marvel classic,” Cranston told Metro while promoting “Trumbo,” in which he stars as a blacklisted screenwriter.

Cranston doesn’t want to play an existing comic-book baddie, though — he wants to “create one from scratch.”

“I don’t know what I would do, but it would be nasty,” Cranston said of the villain he would invent.

Based on Marvel’s packed film and TV slates, Cranston should have plenty of opportunities to get in the superhero game. The studio recently announced new release dates for upcoming films “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” “Black Panther” and “Captain Marvel.” “Captain America: Civil War” will bow in theaters May 6, 2016.

Cranston’s upcoming credits include “Get a Job,” “In Dubious Battle” and “Kung Fu Panda 3.” He was last seen in 2014 monster pic “Godzilla” opposite Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen. “Breaking Bad” ran on AMC from 2008-2013. Read our cover story on Cranston here.
