Disney and Marvel have been very secretive when it comes to Jude Law’s role in the upcoming superhero flick Captain Marvel. Everyone involved in the project has deflected questions about Law’s part, even though many fans of the series speculated he’d be playing Mar-Vell.
A Funko Pop! figure released that he’d be playing Yon-Rogg, an antagonist of Brie Larson’s leading lady Carol Danvers, but according to an update from Marvel and Disney, that information was wrong. According to ComicBook, a previously released photo of Law and Larson surfaced on the film’s official site, captioned by, “Jude Law as Mar-Vell, the leader of Starforce.”
In the comics, Mar-Vell is the source of Danvers’ powers, as strange cosmic energies of a Kree machine turns Danvers into a human-Kree hybrid.
