As Marvel continues to move forward, with the soon to be released Captain America: Civil War as the catalyst for this expansion, it is expected we will see new characters introduced to the fictional universe, via television and cinema. Though Civil War’s directors, Joe and Anthony Russo, continue to play coy about who will be joining the growing hero lineup, award-winning poster artist, Ciara McAvoy, decided to let us in on one of the secrets we’ve been dying to know.
Oh yes, you heard the lady, Captain Britain is going to be joining the ‘on screen’ list of heroes by snagging his own television show.
The (un)official announcement is big news for Marvel, and it causes fans to question the direction they will be going in with Captain America’s role. Does this make him more expendable with the introduction of his English counterpart? Is Marvel making room for a new Captain? My, My, ‘How the mind races!’
As one can expect, people flooded Twitter with questions, in which Ciara responded;
Of course this leaves us all grasping for more, but in typical Marvel fashion, we fully expect this torturous wait to last throughout Civil War’s cinematic run.
In the words of Ciara;
Man, if Marvel is consistent about one thing, it’s playing the waiting game, and playing it well.
“Captain Britain (Brian Braddock) is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by Chris Claremont and Herb Trimpe, he first appeared in Captain Britain Weekly #1 (October 1976). The character was initially intended to be a British equivalent of Captain America. Endowed with extraordinary powers by the legendary magician Merlyn and his daughter Roma, Captain Britain was assigned to uphold the laws of Britain.” –Marvel
