Superman Actor Henry Cavill Wants To Be Captain Britain In The MCU


Jay Cochran - November 11, 2021
In a recent interview with THR, actor Henry Cavill who seems to be moving on from DC's Superman has indicated that he would be interested in coming over to the MCU to play the character Brian Braddock AKA Captain Britain.

"I have the internet, and I have seen the various rumors about Captain Britain, and that would be loads of fun to do a cool, modernized version of that — like the way they modernized Captain America. There’s something fun about that, and I do love being British."

Whether Disney has any actual plans to ever bring Brian Braddock to the MCU remains to be seen, but you can check out this fan-made poster by carpaa2011 below to get an idea of what it might look like if they did and if Cavill got the part.

He can play whoever he wants in the MCU, Im in. He has great acting skills and is fun to look at for everyone.

Well, if you haven't noticed the MCU kinda goes along the lines of Marvel's Ultimate Universe, where basically all superpowers came from an attempt at the Super Soldier Serum. Not to say that Cap Britain's powers don't have anything to do with Merlin or Camelot, but like Gamma radiation was the catalyst for the SSS to turn Banner to Hulk, a magical item or spell could be the catalyst to spark Braddock's powers. Of course they could just go with an Iron Man type suit like the comics, but that would be pretty lame.

Also keep in mind that there has been no explanation of how the current Spider-Man gained his powers. I'm sure it will have a lot to do with how Marvel's negotiations go with Sony, but I bet when all is said and done it could also be a result of experimentation with a SS Serum as well. I guarantee the X-Men will also be a result of failed experiments with some sort of serum, similar to the comics, as well.

I could easily see Spidey getting his powers from an experimental SS Serum infused spider, similar to the Ultimate Universe

***Spoiler for a 3 Year Old movie***

Based on his Mission Impossible appearance (not to mention his Superman movies LOL), he makes for a much more compelling villain than a hero.

He could play both Brian Braddock andByron Bra-Dhok

I'm in for that, but with some good writers, because even with horrid ones from DC, he has been kinda lovable...

I'd be all for this, think Henry is great, although for some reason I always thought he would make a good Cyclops, but hey I mean he'd be a good Braddock as well, * *

*spoilers*

He actually thought he would make a good Blade, but he can't get the moves down. I guess some mofos are STILL always trying to ice skate uphill.

Personally, I always thought Tom Hopper (Merlin, The Umbrella Academy) would be a great Brian.

Henry has been amazing with the scripts he is given and in my opinion is 2nd only to Christopher Reeve in line as the best Superman.

But the scripts for his Superman films have been terrible (not to mention the direction, acting, etc.)

Id agree but his turn as Superman and Solo in The Man From Uncle Show he can step pretty easily into any role. As Solo, he has one foot in the role of Bond already.. I recommend that movie to all.. one of Guy Ritchies most underrated films

Cmon over Henry.. the water is fine in MCU Land. While Id prefer him take on an A lister, Im sure Cavill could make Cap Brit a household name given half a chance.

Warner/ DC is unbelievable.. they have a great actor who WANTS to be a part of their $#!+ show and they cant show him the door fast enough..

Henry has been amazing with the scripts he is given and in my opinion is 2nd only to Christopher Reeve in line as the best Superman.
