Although one producer’s hopes for a Captain Britain television series haven’t materialized, the superhero could yet have a future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
While promoting Spider-Man: Homecoming with Sony producer Amy Pascal, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was asked about the possibility of Captain Britain being introduced into the MCU.
“We have discussed it,” Feige told HeyUGuys. “There are a lot of actors that come in and ask about that part, so we’ll have to see.”
Created Chris Claremont and Herb Trimpe, Brian Braddock debuted as Captain Britain in 1976 in Captain Britain Weekly #1. Granted mystical powers by Merlyn and his daughter Roma following a motorcycle accident, Captain Britain was initially intended as the British counterpart to Captain America.
The hero has served on various Avengers teams, with his most recent membership as a part of the covert Secret Avengers. Captain Britain is also part of the X-Men universe as a founding member of Excalibur.
Swinging into theaters July 7, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
