Captain Britain spotted in Marvel Line-Up poster, then he vanishes.

While I was browsing the Bleeding Cool comic book news website I was struck by an article which included an official poster of Marvel’s 2015 superhero line up.

Why was I drawn to the poster? Well, I was interested to see if Captain Britain makes the line-up, and to my surprise there he was. See if you can spot him in the poster below.

What do you mean you can’t see him, click the image to enlarge it or check out the poster below.

So when the Fantastic Four and the X-Men are removed from the poster due to Marvel film rights shenanigans Cap will be safe won’t he?

Here’s the altered poster.

Click to enlarge, but I’m certain Cap has been removed from the altered poster. Why? Well it’s either because he’s in the X-Men movie or Marvel just forgot to put him back in? Me I’m betting on the latter.

Thanks to Bleeding Cool for the article that inspired this post.

Oh well it was nice to see Captain Britain proudly but briefly taking his place alongside the rest of the Marvel heroes. Maybe he’s still there, I mean I wear glasses so I might have missed him hiding behind Moon Knight’s cape or is he being blocked by Ego the living planet? If you can spot him in the altered poster please let me know so my faith in the Marvel merchandising department can be restored.

  1. My guess would be they have rights to all characters who were memebers of an X-Team for a set number of issues or were created to be part of an X-Team. So Cap B gets the boot because of his Excalibur tenure regardless of Mutant status. Don’t forget there are other non-mutants included in the franchise. Granted only as bad guys but still.

    Also take Iron Man 2, Joey Chapman is named as a race car driver in a split second line up. Could that have originally been Jamie Braddock, but changed later because of these issues?

  2. Cap 🇬🇧 Is a tricky character for Marvel because he is an Avenger but his sister, brother, and wife are mutants. So is Wisdom, so it will be hard to include him without completely rewriting his history. Maybe Fox will break with Marvel’s merchandise ban, and allow Disney to use mutants in their movies…
    P.S. Speaking of Meggan did anyone spot her in A-Force?
