Whenever there is talk about a new hero or villain joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe there will always be speculation and fan demand for certain actors to play those specific roles. One popular fan cast is for Man of Steel actor, Henry Cavill, to play Captain Britain, the United Kingdom’s version of Captain America.
Recently well known fan artist Daniel Savage aka @savagecomics posted on their Instagram how they believe the Superman actor would look as the Union Jack branded hero.
For some time fans have been wondering if we would ever see the Brian Braddock version of Captain Britain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not too long ago we saw the Peggy Carter version in the animated Marvel series What If…? on Disney Plus.
Last year Henry Cavill commented on the topic about him possibly joining the MCU:
“I’m never going to say a Marvel character that is already being played by someone else because everyone’s doing such an amazing job. However, 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 love being British.“
Cavill has quite the amount of projects lined up. He still wants to play Superman, and depending on how the WB-Discovery merger goes we’ll see if he does. He is the main star of the ongoing Netflix adaptation of The Witcher. And, he is also one of the top candidates to become the next James Bond. So even if he was offered the role he may be too busy with other projects. Not to mention making the move from DC to Marvel might cause a few headaches.
What do you think? Do you think Henry Cavill would make a good Captain Britain? Or do you think he should stick with DC and keep playing Superman?
