Chris Claremont talks Captain Britain/Excalibur movie

Over on the Hollywood Reporter website, X-Men scribe and Captain Britain creator Chris Claremont has been talking Marvel movies, and has stated his opinion on a Captain Britain/Excalibur film.

Talk turned to Cap and Excalibur when Claremont was asked about possible directions for new Marvel films, to which he replied:

” With Excalibur, you have the option of leaping literally out of this world – I mean they have a pan-dimensional train, for heaven’s sake – to other star systems or possibly even other dimensions.”

With Claremont behind a possible Captain Britain/Excalibur movie it raises this blog’s hopes that one day Cap might come to movie theatres. The use of Excalibur as a vehicle to launch a Cap franchise is a great idea as they can literally travel anywhere and do anything, leaving scripting possibilities wide open.

Maybe the film will be like my previous speculation on what a Captain Britain movie might be like which you can read here or here.
