Jude Law To Join Brie Larson in CAPTAIN MARVEL!
Jude Law is in negotiations with Marvel to join Brie Larson in Captain Marvel. According to Variety, if he's cast, he will take on the male lead role. Not much is known about who he will be playing, but according to the report, he will play a character that is "a mentor of sorts to Danvers as she tries to figure out her new powers."
Law will also join Ben Mendelsohn who has been cast as the main villain in the story. That story 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.
We also know that the film is set in the 90s, it would involve a war with the Skrull alien race, and Nick Fury will also be in the film. Samuel L. Jackson is expected to reprise his role, but that has yet to be confirmed.
Half Nelson directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are helming the film from a script written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider), Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) and Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy).
Jude Law, who will next star as Albus Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, is a wonderfully talented actor and It's pretty awesome that he will be joining the MCU party! He's going to fit right in.
The movie is set to be released on March 8, 2019. Who do you think Law will end up playing in the film?
