Captain Britain Show Reportedly in the Works For MCU

Amidst a slew of projects in the MCU’s pipeline, with ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ being the sole 2024 release, there’s been a shift in focus towards quality over quantity, as announced by Iger previously. However, recent rumors suggest otherwise, indicating a multitude of projects currently in development.

Among these projects is a series centered around Captain Britain, potentially replacing the previously rumored MI13 show.

The inclusion of Captain Britain in the MCU isn’t a recent development, with rumors dating as far back as 2018. For the uninitiated, Captain Britain, alter ego of Brian Braddock, transcends being merely a British counterpart to Captain America. Introduced in 1976, his character is imbued with mystical powers by Merlyn, blending elements of a superhero with those of a mystical guardian. Often, his adventures traverse magical realms, offering a captivating layer to the MCU’s narrative landscape.

Henry Cavill recently expressed his interest in portraying Captain Britain in the MCU. Fans took this as a strong hint that if the project moves forward, Cavill would likely be cast. While there have been rumors of Cavill appearing as a Wolverine variant in ‘Deadpool & Wolverine,’ it’s also speculated that this wouldn’t rule him out for other roles in the MCU.

However, it’s important to remember that this is just a rumor, and there hasn’t been any official confirmation. Brad Winderbaum recently mentioned that the MCU’s approach has shifted, so even if something is in development, it might not end up being produced and released.
