Update #2: It now appears as though the producers behind this project are developing it as more of a fan project/reel, rather than a project alongside Marvel Television. In fact, they’re hoping to bring it to Marvel’s attention in 2017, after they’ve developed it, in hopes of gaining Marvel’s interest.

You can read the original report, as well as the second update, below.

Update: It appears that these reports of a Captain Britain TV series may not be true after all. EW editor James Hibberd posted the following tweets regarding what he has heard about the project.

What makes this so interesting is just earlier today, McAvoy took to Twitter yet again to reveal the names of the producers of the possible upcoming series.

She has seemed to be very open about this project and does not seem to have much of a reason to lie about it. Even so, it’s hard not to put some stock in EW’s report since they have a very close relationship with Marvel.

Stay tuned to the site as more updates are sure to follow. You can read the original report below.

Marvel has been bringing us quality TV recently, using it as a medium to flesh out the more complicated and lesser-known heros, through shows such as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, Daredevil, and Jessica Jones. Not to mention the fact that Marvel is planning even more network TV shows, such as Most Wanted and Damage Control, in addition to the rest of The Defenders series on Netflix. And of course, before season two of Daredevil was even released this month, there were rumors of a Punisher spin-off on Netflix, meaning we can expect to hear something in regards to that relatively soon. (Especially given Bernthal’s phenomenal take on the character.)

However, it now looks like Marvel is also looking to add Captain Britain to the television mix. Ciara McAvoy, a film poster artist, made the following twitter post this morning, leading to plenty of questions from curious Marvel fans.

Of course, a post like that could mean many things. It could mean that it’s a possible idea being developed. Or that that there’s talk, but no clear plans just yet. However, when asked if this was really happening, she replied:

I am being paid to do the promo poster so yes I’d say this is really happening.

It might take a while before the announcement (either early 2017 or late 2016) They’re making a sizzle reel and it’s gonna be awesome

Her later post also implies that there are co-producers attached to the series, although she can’t reveal them at this time. (Not surprising.)

I can’t reveal anything yet but hopefully I’ll be able to soon. Waiting for the go ahead from the co-producer

We’ve previously listed Captain Britain as one of the 15 Iconic Characters That Could Be Among the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s New Avengers. The character, created in 1976 by legendary Marvel writer Chris Claremont, Brian Braddock/Captain Britain is another genius-level character who has recently seen a reemergence in the comics. Braddock, like Cho, joined the Illuminati in their attempts to stop the destruction of the Multiverse. Braddock is an interesting character because he has deep ties to the mystical folklore of Great Britain and is yet another in the long line of scientific geniuses-turned super hero in Marvel’s stable. Given the MCU’s propensity to show magic as science we don’t yet understand, Braddock’s character and his mystical Amulet of Right would fit in nicely alongside Doctor Strange.

As we are going to see in Phase 3, America can’t be the only place there are superheroes and the Marvel Cinematic Universe is slowly expanding to other parts of the globe. The main concern with Braddock entering the MCU, however, is that it is entirely possible that his live-action rights may not be held by Marvel Studios. Though he debuted in his own solo book and is not a mutant, his twin sister, Betsy Braddock, is the X-Man Psylocke. Though I found nothing definitive while searching, it’s believed that despite the ties to the X-Men, Captain Britain is a Marvel Studios owned property.

Captain Britain and MI-13, much like Daredevil, are characters that could be done more justice and properly explored in a TV series. The general premise of a group of super-powered heroes protecting Great Britain against supernatural threats sounds like something that could make for a pretty interesting series. That doesn’t even delve into the potential for the Multiversal Captain Britain Corps, but that’s something better left until AFTER they introduce the idea of the Multiverse.
