Is Marvel’s Captain Britain Getting a TV Series?

Late last week, movie poster artist and producer Ciara McAvoy, who has worked in the art department on films such as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and X-Men: First Class, teased the existence of a possible Captain Britain TV show via Twitter.

A few days after this tweet, McAvoy followed up with “I can’t reveal anything yet but hopefully I’ll be able to soon. Waiting for the go ahead from the co-producer.”

There has been no previous reports, or even rumours, about a possible Captain Britain TV series, so if this does turn out to be true then we should expect an official announcement by Marvel in the not-too-distant future. That said, in a reply to a Twitter question, McAvoy said an official announcement could come “either early 2017 or late 2016.”

Captain Britain, a.k.a. Brian Braddock, is a fairly obscure Marvel character, who is given his powers by Merlyn (the comic books version of the Merlin from Arthurian legend) following a near-fatal motorcycle accident. The character, while considered a bit lame to some, has served alongside all of the major Avengers characters, including Captain America, Ant-Man and Hawkeye in the Secret Avengers.

If the TV series does go ahead, it will be interesting to see if Marvel utilise their extremely popular collaboration with Netflix or go with a standard broadcaster like Agents of SHIELD.
