Captain Britain: Psylocke is definitely in X-Men:Apocalypse, but I'm pretty sure they'll drop the "used to be a white upper-class Englishwoman" element because it's too complicated and politically offensive.

Yes, I somehow doubt the Siege Perilous is going to be included in her film backstory.

(I saw somewhere that they may have quietly retconned that backstory out in the comics recently anyway and made her Japanese by birth?)

I haven't been reading any X-Men comics lately (Quesada can call me if an when Charles is alive again) but that would certainly be a good retcon.

But I don't want Captain Britain in the MCU unless they let Paul Cornell write his solo film, and give him veto power over the way he's written and used in every other film, to make sure they don't throw in any offensively dated, stereotypical, and exoticised tourist-friendly US depictions of Britain and the British.

Good point. Cornell is definitely the best-qualified writer on multiple levels!
