John Brant Brodie (30 August 1862 – 16 February 1925) was an English footballer who was a pivotal figure in the formative years of Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Brodie attended St Luke's School in Blakenhall, and was a founding figure of the football club that became Wolverhampton Wanderers. He played in the club's first-ever FA Cup tie in 1883, scoring twice in a 4-1 win over Long Eaton Rangers, and first-ever Football League match in September 1888. He also captained the team in the 1889 FA Cup Final, where they lost 0-3 to league champions Preston North End.

Brodie won three England caps, making his debut on 2 March 1889, when he scored - as captain - in a 6-1 win over Ireland at Anfield. His other appearances were against Scotland and, again, Ireland.

He retired from playing in 1891 due to a knee injury and became headmaster of a Wolverhampton school. He later returned to Wolves as a director.
