It appears that Jude Law is heading to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Variety are reporting that Law is in negotiations for the lead male role in Captain Marvel, opposite star Brie Larson. Law is up for the part of Doctor Walter Lawson, otherwise known as Mar-Vell, who goes on to become a mentor of sorts for Larson’s character after she gains her ‘Marvelous’ superpowers of strength, energy projection, and flight.
Marvel have not yet officially confirmed the casting.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Ben Mendelsohn and regular MCU star Samuel L. Jackson have already signed on for the movie.
Captain Marvel is due to be released on 8 March 2019.
