Captain Britain in a Marvel Movie?

There's been talk of late of a possible Captain Britain TV show, but it turned out to be a pitch. On Stan Lee's Facebook page the following article appeared, with a link to the Stan Lee site...

Guess Which British Hero May Be Making His Way To The Marvel Cinematic Universe

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has stretched from New York City to Asgard all the way out to Knowhere, so it would make sense that Marvel’s next big project takes fans across the pond to the bonnie shores of jolly old England.
Silver screen aside, Marvel has enjoyed a wild amount of success on the small screen with Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter as well as on the cyber screen with its dark, violent, and gritty Netflix lineup, and fans can’t seem to get enough. Lucky for them, Marvel has a few brand new series in the works, including one starring the much more mythical counterpart to one of the MCU’s greatest heroes, Captain America.
In order to celebrate her 1000th tweet, Ciara McAvoy, a Scottish film producer and artist, posted a sneak peek at one of her newest projects: a picture of a uniform comic book fans will easily recognize.

That’s A Very Familiar Suit…

That’s right – once the dust from the Civil War settles, the MCU’s greatest heroes may just get the chance to team up with Marvel’s most iconic English superhero.

While Braddock is often seen as the British version of Captain America, Captain Britain did not get his powers from science, but from magic.
After being given a choice between the Amulet of Right and the Sword of Might by the legendary wizard Merlyn, Braddock chose the Amulet and was rewarded with mystical powers that transformed him into Captain Britain.
Considering Marvel Studios is getting ready to introduce moviegoers to the magical side of the MCU with the highly anticipated film Doctor Strange, it would make sense that Braddock and his magical origin story could be added into the mix.
The series is still in early development, so there’s no word just yet on when fans can expect to actually see the new series.

Cool Cover Art: Excalibur #6

I love this cover for Excalibur #6, drawn by Alan Davis, with Paul Neary inks. An 'Inferno' tie-in realeased March 1989. The five members of Excalibur in demonic form portrayed perfectly by Davis, exuding the fun that was contained within.

Fighting bad guys is serious business, and can sometimes be quite dark to read, with Excalibur I loved the fun elements, it's what made this comic so good, made it stand out from every other comic released, and combine that with Alan Davis' art, and it was a sure fire hit.

Every week I'd buy a stack of comics, and would always save the best ones until last, Excalibur was always the last comic I'd read.

Scatterbrain by Jake Ekiss

Spotted this cool piece by Deviant artist Jake Ekiss on his Deviant Art page, nice!

Jake had this to say about this piece he's created...
'Testing out my new Surface and tweaking settings. Inks are a little chunky, but not terrible. A few more tests and we should be off to the races. Oh, this is also the first attempt coloring in Manga Studio. Fun times.

Character is Scatterbrain (aka Fascination), a member of Technet and occasional cameo in Marvel’s Excalibur and Capt. Britain comics. Why yes, I have been listening to @xplainthexmen a bit lately. So kind of you to notice.'

Black Knight by Bowen Designs - A Birthday Treat

It was my birthday yesterday, and I was spoilt by my loved ones, with the cream on top being a Black Knight bust by Bowen designs. I'm so pleased with this one, it's a lovely piece. I had an urge to share...

My holy trinity!

Need to save up the pennies for the 70's Captain Britain, it's a bit pricey. Bowen need to add a Meggan bust, and a Betsy Braddock, that's all I have to say.
