Jude Law set for Captain Marvel in pretty major MCU role?

November 23rd, 2017 by Marc Comments

It looks like Jude Law isn’t content joining the Harry Potter universe (here), now he wants some of the MCU pie too!

Law is currently close to signing on to the Captain Marvel movie opposite Brie Larson and not only that, he’s set to be a pretty major name from the Marvel universe.

While Larson is the titular Captain Marvel in the movie, Law will play Doctor Walter Lawson, aka Mar-Vell, mentor to Brie Larson‘s Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel in the movie which will largely be a prequel to the majority of MCU movies, being set in the 1990s.

As we reported a while back, Ben Mendelsohn will play the villain in Half Nelson directors’ Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck entry in the MCU.

We also wonder if Marvel/Disney are looking to collect the full set of modern Holmes and Watsons having these already:

And now these:

Surely it’s only a matter of time for these?:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
