During an interview with JoBlo, Simon Pegg expressed interest in playing Captain Britain for the MCU.
I mean, Captain Britain was this Marvel superhero that I loved growing up, ’cause he was the British member of that community. I even have a Captain Britain mask when I was a kid, but I fear I would probably be slightly too old now, but if they do have… If a Captain Britain movie comes about, they’re gonna need a British cast, so… I’ll be waiting.

Game of Thrones
Watchers on the Wall reports that a large gathering of actors in Seville – near the shooting location of the ruins of Itálica, used for the Dragonpit in Thrones‘ seventh season – suggests another major gathering of characters in store for the final season. Initial reports put Maisie Williams, who of course plays Arya, as holidaying in the city, but new sightings of the body doubles for both Peter Dinklage and Sophie Turner, and Dinklage himself, seem to indicate Tyrion and Sansa will also be heading to the pit this season.
Further unconfirmed reports from the site also allege that Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Gwendoline Christie and John Bradley were also seen boarding flights to Seville recently, indicating quite a bit team up of Team Stark-affiliated characters if it ends up being true.
