    Dr. Brian Braddock is the original Captain Britain who appeared in the comics for the first time in 1976. Her twin sister, Betsy Braddock fought alongside him as Psylocke in his team Excalibur and later on joined the X-Men.

    However, in 2019’s comic book series, ‘House of X’ and ‘Powers of X’, Brian convinces his sister to take his position as Captain Britain and he adopts a new title, Captain Avalon. She later in the ‘Dawn Of X’ series leads Excalibur which has Gambit, Rogue, Jubilee, and Apocalypse.

    Now, since there are 2 Captain Britain in the comics, fans are wondering which one will appear in the MCU. There has been a rumor going that former Superman actor, Henry Cavill will be playing Captain Britain which indicates Brian Braddock’s version.

    However, recently, Marvel Studios has been using the female alter ego of the characters rather than the male one. For example, in 2021’s ‘Black Widow’, Task Master, who is originally a male character, was switched to a female one.

    It also has been already announced that Julia Garner will be playing the role of a female Silver Surfer in the upcoming ‘Fantastic Four’ movie. So the possibility of Betsy Braddock taking on the mantle of Captain Britain cannot be left out.

    Marvel Studio can take a similar route from comics where Brian Braddock will first appear as Captain Britain and later pass the torch to his sister Betsy.
