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.

Deadpool 2 | Average Guy Movie Review

Deadpool: Average Guy Movie Review

Deadpool has arrived! After a very long wait and a very intense marketing campaign he is here and he has not disappointed! Normally I would write an opening paragraph to introduce the movie, show you the poster and get on with telling you what I thought but it all seems pointless. You know exactly what I'm going to say...it was awesome, in fact I've seen it twice inside a week!



The movie has already broken records:

Highest grossing February releaseHighest grossing 'R' rated comic book movieBiggest 'R' rated opening weekendBiggest opening weekend for Twentieth Century FoxBiggest opening of any previous X-Men movieAnd it's on its way to becoming the highest grossing 'R' rated movie of all time. I know I've said it before; just because a movie makes lots of money doesn't mean it's a good movie but Deadpool really is! Tim Miller delivers a very funny movie with a good story, great actors who give great performances and considering the low budg…
