Captain Britain and Deadpool in the MCU

Who - and I'm talking to the British readers here - would like to see a British Marvel superhero enter the MCU? Granted there have already been two British characters of note in Marvel movies, but Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) is very much retired, and James Montgomery Falsworth (JJ Feild) hasn't been seen since the end of World War 2. Maybe it's time for a British superhero.

We Got This Covered is reporting that a source has confirmed Marvel plans to introduce Captain Britain into the MCU at some point during Phase 4. 

Brian Braddock was a scientist working at the Darkmoor nuclear research centre. During an attack on the facility, Braddock went for help but crashed his motorcycle. Badly injured, Braddock was visited by the Omniversal Guardian who gave him the choice to become a superhero. By making the right choice, Braddock became Captain Britain and is gifted with several powers including superhuman strength, speed, stamina, durability, reflexes, senses and supersonic flight. Definitely not the British version of Captain America, then!

It has been revealed that an Easter Egg referencing Braddock is hidden in Avengers: Endgame. In 1970, when Steve Rogers unknowingly hides in Peggy Carter's office he sees his long lost love through a window into another office. According to a Reddit user, Peggy - who is having a discussion with another S.H.I.E.L.D. agent - says "Braddock hasn't checked in. I'm not a meteorologist, and it's not lightning." Obviously this is a reference to some sort of mission Braddock has been assigned. But is this 'the' Braddock? Could this be a relative? Which would explain his presence in Phase 4, unless time travel or some sort of decreased ageing is involved. 

It's worth noting that the Russos haven't yet confirmed that this is indeed a reference to Captain Britain. Whilst appearing on the Happy Sad Confused podcast Joe Russo said:

"I think we uh, maybe...or maybe it's just a guy named Braddock."

Although this wouldn't be the first time the Russos have dropped the name of an upcoming hero into one of their movies. Jasper Sitwell mentioned Steven Strange during his interrogation in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Do you think this Easter Egg is genuine, or is it just an elaborate prank?

At this point it is unclear whether Captain Britain's appearance will feature in an upcoming movie or a show on Disney +. What's also unclear is who will be playing the British hero. There are a whole host of British actors capable of taking on this role, that's if Marvel doesn't go with an unknown. There's nothing to say Captain Britain has to be a man, after all this hero is part of an inter-dimensional league of heroes known as the Captain Britain Corps.

Would you like to see Captain Britain appear in the MCU? Who would you like to see play the very British hero? I am very excited about the idea of a British superhero - provided they get the British bit right - but they might need to do something about the suit.

On a semi-related note, MCU Cosmic has reported that one of the possible ways Marvel is considering introducing Deadpool into the MCU, is a team up with Spider-Man. Information they apparently got from a "reliable source", if true this could happen in the follow up to Spider-Man: Far From Home. The other options under consideration are a solo movie (possibly Deadpool 3) or a show on Disney +.

On the bright side it could be fun to see the Merc with a mouth enter the MCU, and a team up with Spidey has hilarious potential. Unfortunately two of these options would more than likely result in a watered down, family friendly Deadpool. All of the MCU movies have been rated '12' (PG 13 in the US) and all of the content planned for Disney + is said to be following suit.

The question is; do we really want a muted Deadpool? Deadpool light if you will. Personally I say no, I like my Deadpool crude, rude and totally off the hook. As much as a team up with Spidey could be fun, it would still be a very censored Deadpool, unless Marvel make the next Spider-Man movie 'R' rated. What are the chances of that?

What are your thoughts on a Deadpool/Spidey team up? Do you even want Deadpool to enter the MCU, or would you prefer he stay in his own little world?

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so!

Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically differen…

Greyhound | Average Guy Movie Review

Greyhound is the lead ship in an escort group assigned to protect a convoy of merchant ships crossing the Atlantic in World War 2. Captain Ernie Krause (Tom Hanks), a career Navy man in his first command, must lead the fight against a wolfpack of German U-Boats. But will he be able to fight off the silent hunters long enough to get the convoy to the safety of British waters?

If ever there was a reason for you to sign up to Apple TV+, this is it. Much like Christopher Nolan said about Dunkirk, the movie Greyhound is more of an experience than a movie, which makes it a real shame that we didn't get to see it on the big screen, as it was intended. After a very brief introduction, the audience is thrown into the hell of life onboard a ship in the middle of the Atlantic in 1942. The whole story is told from the point of view of Captain Krause and his crew. Events are witnessed from the deck of the Greyhound and the occasional aerial shot, the German U-Boats are only glimpsed briefly as …
