Jude Law joins Captain Marvel as Carol Danvers' mentor
Ben Mendelsohn is on board to play the villain with "Half Nelson" helmers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck directing. Earlier this week, we caught a glimpse of Jude Law as a young Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. He finds his way back to Earth, where he dons the mantle of Captain Marvel, an alien savior/superhero who gets into some really weird stuff. Mar-Vell was the original Captain Marvel who passed his superpower-laced DNA onto Carol, helping her become the new Captain Marvel (but she was Ms. Marvel at first, because comics are confusing).
Though his casting hasn't officially been confirmed by Marvel after Variety's story, Law will be playing Doctor Walter Lawson, AKA Mar-Vell, who ends up becoming Danvers' mentor as she figures out her abilities.
The film will be set in the 1990s with Samuel L. Jackson expected to reprise his role as Nick Fury.
