According to Variety and various other sources, the British actor is in talks to play Mar-Vell alongside Brie Larson’s beloved heroine, Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel herself. While Marvel has yet to confirm his role, many fans of both Law and Captain Marvel alike are very excited.
Most notable from Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes adaptations, Grand Budapest Hotel, and most recent blockbuster, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Jude Law has evident potential to bring Mar-Vell to the big screen and play the character exceptionally.
Now that Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes has Martin Freeman’s John Watson in the MCU with him, does that mean Robert Downey Jr. will finally get his Watson as well? One could only dream.
