Oh, Canada: Captain Canuck Might Get His Own Movie

It’s 1993, Canada has become the most powerful country in the world, and their fair land is protected by the red and white spandex of Captain Canuck.

It’s a world far different from our own, but the good Captain might be coming to save us from the repetition of the same superheroes getting reboots and more movies.

Creator of the popular indie comic Richard Comely is claiming that he’s in talks with a Canadian production company to film a $15 million movie featuring the eh-grade super hero. Toronto-based Sinking Ship (which is a foreboding name if there ever was one) had the option up until last year, but according to the LA Times, it’s unclear which production company Comely is in talks with.

The prospect of seeing Captain Canuck anytime soon is a slim one, but it seems logical to assume that the character’s continued appeal, coupled with the Captain America movie might have stoked the fires a bit. This news at least means that the character is one step closer (again) to hitting the big screen with his alien-granted powers. Although, it’s important to note that the comic book creator sharing the news is the worst possible source, so until a production company comes out and waves their intentions proudly, it might just be Millar-style bluster. On the bright side, it would be nice to see a hero being extra polite while kicking ass.
