Jude Law to Star in 'Captain Marvel' Opposite Brie Larson

Jude Law to Star Opposite Brie Larson in Captain Marvel

Carol Danvers, meet your mentor. In the comics, she spent decades operating under the name Ms. Marvel, before taking the title of Captain for herself in a series of comics by Kelly Sue McCormick starting in 2012.

He's played lotharios, vicious villains and movie heroes, but he's never appeared in a Marvel movie, until now. A photo was recently revealed of him as Albus Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and now this news.

Jude Law is really notching up the big film roles. The significance of the film can not be understated as it is the first female solo-outing for a Marvel superhero after a slew of male-centric features. There are now no specific details on his role, but Variety, which first reported the news, says Law will play a mentor to the new superhero. Variety reports that Law's character will also be Mar-Vell in the upcoming film.




Ben Mendelsohn is reported to be playing the main villain in the picture, while Samuel L Jackson is expected to reprise his role as Nick Fury. Both of those films are set up at Warner Brothers. He will likely play the leader of the Skrulls, a race of shape-shifting aliens from the comics which are set to make their first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the film.

It'll release shortly after Captain Marvel in 2019, though there have been rumblings that a select number of costumed crusaders will cross over into the Larson-fronted spinoff.
