Jude Law In Negotiations To Join Cast Of 'Captain Marvel'

Jude Law Mar-vell

Yesterday, word broke out that Marvel was in talks with Jude Law for the role of the classic superhero Mar-Vell in the studio's very first female-led superhero movie, Captain Marvel.

Law's also just wrapped shooting Woody Allen's new movie, which also stars Elle Fanning, and is about to start shooting spy thriller The Rhythm Section opposite Blake Lively. As a result of the accindent, Carol's human DNA fuses with Mar-Vell's DNA (because comics) and she ends up with all of his powers.

Captain Carol Danvers will meet her predecessor when she takes up the mantle of Marvel's Captain Marvel in 2019-and when she does, he'll look a lot like actor Jude Law.

The mentor of Captain Marvel has been found.

Air China suspends flights to North Korea

Variety now reports that Law is "in negotiations" to play the male lead/mentor role of Doctor Walter Lawson. Geneva Robertson-Dworet wrote the most recent script with "Inside Out" scribe Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman penning previous drafts.

It was previously reported that Ben Mendelsohn will play the film's villain, the leader of the Skrulls, a fictional race of extraterrestrial shapeshifters.

Captain Marvel hits theatres March 8 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Captain Marvel as we learn it. In 2018 he's set to play a Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. It's also thought that Law will return as Mr. Watson in the third Sherlock Holmes movie with Robert Downey, Jr, although there have been few developments on the continuation of that franchise (which is produced by Fantastic Beasts' Lionel Wigram).
