Some new fan art imagines what Christian Bale would look like in the role of Captain Britain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As long as the MCU moves forward, there will continue to be a need to bring in new characters and actors as those of before are left behind. With so many of Marvel’s most popular characters already seeing time on the big screen, Marvel Studios will have to start diving into further obscurity when it comes to picking what characters will join the MCU next.
One of these may just be Captain Britain, especially with Kevin Feige saying they’ve discussed bringing him into the fold thanks to the high level of interest from actors. Should they choose to bring Captain Britain to the big screen, some new fan art imagines what the suit could look like – and what Christian Bale would look like in the role.
BossLogic is back once again with his signature fan art. Following Feige’s comments, the artist experimented with Captain Britain’s costume. In order to do this, a base model of an actor was necessary, and the end result is former Batman Christian Bale helping bring the character to life.

This design does take liberties with how Captain Britain has traditionally looked on the page. For starters, he is not wearing a head piece, but that could be just so people can see it is Christian Bale here. However, even the pattern of his suit has changed. Instead of the chest piece mirroring Britain’s flag, this version only accounts for about half of it. Experimentation with costume designs is always a factor in these films, so should Captain Britain get a big screen chance, it could very well be a departure from what comic readers are used to.
Regardless of the look or one’s preference on Bale hypothetically holding this role, it is something that is likely years away from possibly happening. That said, it is one that could make a lot of sense for the studio. It could help the MCU branch out from being so America centric and give them a tentpole franchise for overseas markets. His potential separation from the Avengers stories could allow him to have largely standalone adventures that do not require much crossover, but as a new and unknown franchise, Marvel would likely find a way to have a more notable hero appear in a limited capacity as well.
