Captain Canuck Coming To A Theater Near You!


Richard Comely, the co-creator of Captain Canuck, while talking with Hero Complex, as spilled the beans on what awaits the Captain in the near future.

Richard Comely has told the blog that the character is close to making it onto the big screen.

Captain Canuck is one of the most popular Canadian comic book superheros. Three characters have worn the maple leafed costume of Captain Canuck. Described as a cross between Captain America and Flash Gordon, the first Captain Canuck patrols Canada in the (then) futuristic world of 1993, where “Canada had become the most powerful country in the world.” He was the costumed agent of the CSIS (Canadian Secret Intelligence Services).

Comely said that a $15-million live-action version of the comic is in the works by a Canadian production company!

According to him, the character will provide a fresh take on the genre. Not being the traditional hero the general public is used to, Captain Canuck is sure to surprise in many ways!

“I wanted him to be as real as possible,”

Comely said in a phone interview from Ontario.

“He’s polite, by the way. Just a little bit gentler.”

There is still a long way before we know which of the three versions we will get translated into movie.

What say you readers? Any preferences?
