While there is a growing list of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies in development, with mutants incoming, the Fantastic Four ready to fight, and many other speculated superheroes on their way, the one superhero everyone keeps asking for is Captain Britain. The last time Marvel boss Kevin Feige spoke about the character was seven years ago when he said that they would have to look into it, given the high demand. Ever since then, Henry Cavill has been the top choice. It turns out there is now a new rumor surrounding the superhero, suggesting that we might be seeing a Disney+ series based on Captain Britain.

Yes, you read that right. It is probably happening, and if the stars align in favor of the Superman alumnus, Henry Cavill might get to live his long-standing dream. According to the latest reports, there are chances that an exciting new show is in the works at the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the Disney+ roster, and the chances that Cavill might be involved after reportedly saying yes to a Marvel project are at an all-time high. Read on to know everything you should about this exciting Marvel update.

Captain Britain Series In The Making

According to the scooper My Time To Shine Hello, Marvel bosses are busy shaping a new Disney+ show for their streaming branch, and the subject is none other than the much-anticipated Captain Britain. The scooper adds that this is the only information available right now, with no details about when the show will go on floors, who will play the leading man, or what release window the makers are eyeing. However, fans have been eager to see Henry Cavill play the part.

Henry Cavill As Captain Britain?

The latest rumors from the Marvel Cinematic Universe realm suggest that Henry Cavill, known for his DCU role as Superman, has said yes to an undisclosed Marvel role to Kevin Feige. Rumors had suggested he might play a Wolverine variant or the mutant Cyclops. However, the fact that Henry has expressed a desire to play Captain Britain makes us wonder if he has made the cut.

As per Comic Book Movie, while discussing his aspiration to play Captain Britain, Henry Cavill said, "I’m never going to claim 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 do love being British."
