Captain Marvel has found its male lead to star opposite Brie Larson with Jude Law taking on the role. Law will reportedly take on the role of Doctor Walter Lawson, a mentor character to Larson’s titular hero after she gains her super powers. In the pages of Marvel comics, the original Captain Marvel character (a Kree warrior known as Mar-Vell) took on the identity of Doctor Lawson as his secret identity as he hid out on Earth.
Law joins a cast that also includes Ben Mendelsohn as the villain of the film, likely to be the leader of the alien race The Skrulls, and Samuel L. Jackson reprising his role of Nick Fury.
