Jude Law in talks to star alongside Brie Larson in Captain Marvel

Jude Law to Star Opposite Brie Larson in Captain Marvel

The film has Half Nelson filmmakers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck directing a 1990s-set story that follows an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with an alien's during an accident, imbuing her with superhuman powers. 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. Then we learned Ben Mendelsohn was climbing aboard to play Captain Marvel's villain, and our excitement became such that we had to be restrained and medicated.

He's played lotharios, vicious villains and movie heroes, but he's never appeared in a Marvel movie, until now. That post has since been updated to include the most pertinent line of the lot: Jude Law's character, Walter Lawson, will be the all-wise mentor for Carol Danvers as she begins to wrangle her superhuman powers under control.




Captain Marvel is set for a March 8 2019 release. In the pages of Marvel comics, the original Captain Marvel character (a Kree warrior known as Mar-Vell) took on the identity of Doctor Lawson as his secret identity as he hid out on Earth. The British star just recently joined the Harry Potter franchise, signing in on Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald as the film's young Albus Dumbledore. The Oscar-winning Room actress was cast as Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel last July.

The mentor of Captain Marvel has been found.
