Orlando Bloom Wants To Play CAPTAIN BRITAIN In The MCU!

Looks like Orlando Bloom wants to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In a recent interview with the BBC 2, Bloom gave some thoughts on who he wouldn’t mind playing if he had the choice. He said:

“All the Marvel movies are just phenomenal

“You know, I really think it’s about timing, I’ve not [been asked] but I’ve met [with people] over there, but it’s sort of one of those things where I took a lot of time out to raise my son, and after being in a big franchise [Pirates Of The Caribbean] it was more about wanting to be there for him.

“I figured when he turns around to me when he’s 10 and he’s like, ‘Where were you?’ [I didn’t want that to happen].’

“I do read [Marvel comics] a little bit. Who’s the British one? Captain Britain! There you go.”

Bloom added: “Terrible costume though, and also you’ve got Captain America so what you going to do? Captain Britain vs. Captain America?’

What I find interesting is that this isn’t the first time that Captain Britain was brought up, Simon Pegg actually threw his name in the hat during an interview with Joblo.com:

“I mean, Captain Britain was this Marvel superhero that I loved growing up, ’cause he was the British member of that community.

“I even have a Captain Britain mask when I was a kid, but I fear I would probably be slightly too old now, but if they do… If a Captain Britain movie comes about, they’re gonna need a British cast, so I’ll be waiting.”

If you’re not familiar with Captain Britain, he was created in 1976 to give the brits a Marvel hero they could call their own. Known as Brian Braddock, he was given his powers by Merlin and his daughter Roma before leading EXCALIBUR, which is known as the UK version of the Avengers.
During the Avengers Infinity War red carpet Kevin Feige was actually asked more than once if there was a possibility of bring the British super hero to the MCU: “We have discussed it. There are a lot of actors that come in and ask about that part, so we’ll have to see.”
With Feige saying that a lot of things will change for phase 4, so the odds of Excalibur appearing are pretty damn good.
