The version ofHenry cavill seems to be benched Warner, despite the fierce will of the actor who does not wish to put down his cape, following their virtual abandonment of an MCU-esque timeline after the bad reception of the film Justice League, trashed by this dear JossWhedon. In addition, a Superman film proposed by writer Ta-Nehisi Coates and directed by Michael B. Jordan is currently in production.

Captain Britain, the alter ego of Brian Braddock, was featured in issue 1 of Captain Britain Weekly from Marvel comics in 1976. UK flagship hero Brian Braddock was endowed with extraordinary strength and speed, flight and energy beams by the magician Merlyn, who entrusted the hero with the task of making respect the law as a protector. Captain britain has a long history in comics, most notably as a member of Secret Avengers and Illuminati, but also as a leader of his own team known as Excalibur.

I’m never gonna tell a Marvel character who’s already played by someone else […] because everyone is doing such an amazing job.

There is something fun about it, and I love being British.
