Marvel Captain Britain Series False Rumor

Marvel's Captain Britain Isn't TV-Bound

The Marvel superhero Captain Britain will not be the subject of an imminent TV series, contrary to rumors swirling out there in the ether.

Sparking the talk was a series of tweets from poster artist Ciara McAvoy, who teased the imminent casting of Captain Britain for a TV project:

Well-placed sources, however, assure TVLine that the rumor is “not true.”

Created in 1976 for the Marvel UK imprint, Captain Britain was the alter ego of Brian Baddock, a physicist whose parents died in a (seeming) laboratory accident. Upon nearly dying in a motorcycle crash, Brian was offered by Merlyn and his daughter Roma the Amulet of Right, which transformed him into Captain Britain.
