‘Captain Marvel’ adds Jude Law as Mar-Vell, the mentor to Brie Larson’s lead character

Jude Law is in negotiations to play the male lead opposite Brie Larson in Marvel’s Captain Marvel, sources tell Variety.

The report summarizes how Ben Mendelsohn is on board to play the villain with directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and Kevin Feige producing.

“Geneva Robertson-Dworet wrote the most recent script with Inside Out scribe Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman penning previous drafts, which follows Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. The resulting alteration imbues her with the superpowers of strength, energy projection, and flight,” Variety summarized.

Law will be playing Doctor Walter Lawson, a.k.a. Mar-Vell, who becomes a mentor of sorts to Danvers as she tries to figure out her new powers.

Feige announced that the superhero film will be set in the ’90s, before the Avengers ever thought of assembling, and Samuel L. Jackson is expected to reprise his role as Nick Fury.

Law landed the role of young Albus Dumbledore in “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.” He is also still attached to star in a third “Sherlock Holmes” film, which Warner Bros. is currently developing.

Captain Marvel is slated to arrive in theaters on March 8, 2019.
