Marvel's Captain Britain Isn't TV-Bound

Marvel Captain Britain Series False Rumor

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.
