Ever heard of Union Jack? Well, Black Panther executive producer Nate Moore has and he wants to bring him to the MCU.
In an interview with Kevin Smith’s Fatman on Batman Avengers: Infinity War screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely talked about the producer’s passion to bring the UK-themed character to the big screen:
“I will say this, Every time you make a movie with Nate Moore he tries to put Joey Chapman, is he Captain Britain or…Union Jack, yeah. He tries to put Union Jack in. He will succeed, I warn you now he will succeed.”
“Whether you want Union Jack or not.”
Believe it or not, we’ve already seen one incarnation of Union Jack in Captain America: The First Avenger. The first man to don the hood was Montgomery Falsworth, who was rescued by The Howling Commandos after being captured by HYDRA.
That version of Union Jack is often depicted in the comics as part of Cap’s original WWII team The Invaders. Joeseph Chapman is the more modern version of the super-spy and took over the title after a run-in with Falsworth’s great-grandson Kenneth Crichton.
Could we see Jack in Phase IV? It’s certainly possible since there will be new ground to cover and many more characters to introduce. I’m personally holding out for Captain Britain.
