One of the great things about the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is the quality and prestige of the cast in each individual film. Even Doctor Strange, a film whose main character is very obscure and unknown to many, had talent such as Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Benedict Cumberbatch among others. Now, it seems that the MCU is about to add another great actor to one of their future films.
Jude Law In Captain Marvel?
According to a report in Variety, Jude Law is in negotiations with Marvel to star opposite Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson as the male lead in Captain Marvel. The film is scheduled to release in March 2019 and Jude Law, who has appeared in films such as Road to Perdition, Cold Mountain, Hugo and The Grand Budapest Hotel, is expected to play the character of Doctor Walter Lawson. This character also goes by the name of Mar-Vell.
The story of Captain Marvel will be set in the 1990s and it will be an origin story for Captain Marvel/Carol Denvers who will be played by Brie Larson. Jude Law joins what is already looking to be another stellar cast that includes powerhouse actors such as Ben Mendelsohn, who is set to play the villain of the film, and Samuel L. Jackson who himself will be playing a younger version of Nick Fury. Variety also reports that the role that Jude Law could potentially play in Captain Marvel would be as a mentor to Brie Larson’s character of Carol Denvers as she tries to figure out and master her powers.
My Thoughts on Jude Law in Captain Marvel
Obviously, it is never a bad idea to add talent to a film and I believe that Marvel has made another great addition to their cinematic universe with Jude Law. He has had a long and successful career as an actor in the film industry and has two Oscar nominations to his name as well. Moreover, it is another huge franchise that Jude Law will be a part of.
Indeed, he is going to play a younger version of Albus Dumbledore in the sequels to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Additionally, he is already beloved by many due to his role as Dr. Watson in Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows which he co-stars in alongside another MCU star in the form of Robert Downey Jr. who plays Iron Man in the MCU. While no contract is signed yet, Jude Law in the MCU is a very exciting prospect that film fans should get excited about.
