Has ‘Captain America’ Found Its Union Jack?

We know classic Captain America villains Arnim Zola and The Red Skull will be battling Steve Rogers and James “Bucky” Barnes when “The First Avenger: Captain America” arrives on the big screen, but a recent, unconfirmed report has indicated that Cap’s counterpart in the U.K. could get in on the action, too.

For what it’s worth, film/acor database and noted rumor mill IMDb has an actor cast in the role of Montgomery Falsworth — a.k.a. Union Jack — in “Captain America: The First Avenger”. British actor JJ Feild was born in the USA, but if the site proves correct, he’ll be WWII-era superteam The Invaders’ foremost Brit.

With his roles having thus far been limited to smaller British films and TV series, it’s not likely most Americans have seen Feild before. That may change as the actor cuts quite a convincing figure as the potential hero.

In the comics world, Union Jack has at least three notable incarnations: the WWII-era Montgomery Falsworth, his son Brian Falsworth, and Joseph Chapman, featured in Ed Brubaker’s Captain America.

With director Joe Johnston having maintained that all six of The Invaders would be a part of the film, the WWII-set “First Avenger” would definitely include original Union Jack character Montgomery, and for now only that much is certain.

Do you think JJ Field looks like Union Jack? Should The Invaders be a major part of the “Captain America” movie? Let us know what you think in the comment section or on Twitter!
