Jude Law in Talks to Join Captain Marvel

Jude Law is in negotiations to play the male lead role in Captain Marvel according to a report by Variety. He will play the role of Doctor Walter Lawson, a.k.a. Mar-Vell, who becomes a mentor to Carol Danvers (played by Brie Larson) as she tries to figure out hew new powers.

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will direct the film. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige will serve as producer, just like all the other Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Geneva Robertson-Dworet wrote the most recent script with “Inside Out” scribe Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman penning previous drafts. Larson will play the titular superhero. Ben Mendelsohn has signed on to play the villain. Samuel L. Jackson is expected to reprise his role of Nick Fury.

This won’t be the first time that Law joins a popular movie franchise. He is set to play the role of young Albus Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. He is also attached to reprise his role of Dr. Watson on the third Sherlock Holmes movie. Earlier this year, he starred in the HBO limited series The Young Pope, in which his performance received rave reviews from the critics.

With Law joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the movie and television Sherlock and Dr. Watson have all joined the franchise. Movie Sherlock, Robert Downey Jr., has been playing Tony Stark/Iron Man across multiple films. TV Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch, plays Doctor Strange and he is expected to work with Downey in Avengers: Infinity War. TV Dr. Watson, Martin Freeman, played Everett K. Ross in Captain America: Civil War and he is expected to reprise the role in Black Panther.

The story of the film 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. The film is expected to be set during the ’90s, before the Avengers ever thought of assembling.

Captain Marvel will be released in cinemas March 8, 2019.
