Henry Cavill, famous for his role as Superman in the DCEU, has become the subject of new fan art that imagines him as Captain Britain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Despite his roller coaster of a year in 2022, where he initially announced his return as Superman only to have that plan changed, Cavill's popularity hasn't waned. Fans are eager to see him take on new superhero roles, with Captain Britain being a popular choice.
The new Marvel fan art, created by Buffy2Ville, showcases Cavill as Brian Braddock, aka Captain Britain. With his British heritage, Cavill seems like a natural fit for the character.
While fans may be excited about the possibility of Cavill joining the MCU, there are several factors to consider. Cavill is set to star in and executive produce a Warhammer 40,000-based TV show for Amazon, which is a project close to his heart. Additionally, after the turmoil he experienced with Warner Bros. and the DCEU, Cavill may want to take a break from the superhero genre.
If Cavill were to join the MCU, it may be more likely for him to take on a one-and-done gig rather than committing to a long-term contract. Nonetheless, his portrayal of Superman will always be remembered, regardless of whether he ventures into another comic book property.
For now, we can only wait and see if the MCU will ever have the honor of Cavill's presence. Whether as Captain Britain or another character, it would undoubtedly be an exciting addition to the Marvel universe.
