Orlando Bloom has thrown in his hat to play Captain Britain in a prospective Marvel Cinematic Universe film - but Marvel will need to do something about the costume, apparently.

“All the Marvel movies are just phenomenal. You know, I really think it’s about timing, I’ve not [been asked] but I’ve met [with people] over there, but it’s sort of one of those things where I took a lot of time out to raise my son, and after being in a big franchise [Pirates Of The Caribbean] it was more about wanting to be there for him," Bloom told BBC2 (via Express). "I figured when he turns around to me when he’s 10 and he’s like, ‘Where were you?’ [I didn’t want that to happen]."

“I do read [Marvel comics] a little bit," the actor continued. "Who’s the British one? Captain Britain! There you go. Terrible costume though, and also you’ve got Captain America so what you going to do? Captain Britain vs. Captain America?"

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has said in the past that a Captain Britain film has been discussed internally.
