Variety is reporting that Jude Law has just finalized a deal join the cast of Marvel’s ‘Captain Marvel’ film in a role that pretty much every comic book fan will recognize. If you don’t know him by his human name (Doctor Lawson), then you will most definitely recognize Jude Law’s character by his given name: Mar-Vell! That’s right, Law will be joining Brie Larson and Ben Mendelshon (the as of yet unnamed bad guy), as the original Captain Marvel.
Variety also is reporting that Law wasn’t actually the first choice for the role. Marvel/ Disney offered the part to Keanu Reeves, but the John Wick/ Bill & Ted star opted out.
Captain Marvel hits theatres on March 8, 2019.
