With Netflix currently knee deep in the Marvel universe, not to mention Agents of SHIELD feeling like it finally found its feet this season and the spin-off Mockingjay and Agent Carter out there too, we shouldn’t be surprised to hear of more Marvel TV content.

And we’re not.

Now, treat this as as a rumour, but poster artist Ciara McAvoy has been on Twitter (below) saying she’s involved in the Captain Britain series that no-one seems to know anything about.

The artist, when talking to MCU Exchange, said that she has been hired to work on the poster for the show but can say no more: “I am being paid to do the promo poster so yes I’d say this is really happening. It might take a while before the announcement (either early 2017 or late 2016) They’re making a sizzle reel and it’s gonna be awesome. I can’t reveal anything yet but hopefully I’ll be able to soon. Waiting for the go ahead from the co-producer”

Captain Britain is a hero with links to King Arthur and steeped in British mythology and could be a very interesting addition to the MCU. What do you think, do you want to see Brian Braddock AKA Captain Britain on the small screen? Maybe as part of the Netflix run? Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
