Captain Marvel will have us following Carol Danvers, an air force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. The resulting alternation imbues her with the powers of super strength, energy projection and flight.
The report states that Jude Law (whose recent credits include The Young Pope and King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword) could be playing the role of Doctor Walter Lawson, a.k.a. Mar-Vell, who becomes a mentor of sorts to Danvers as she tries to figure out her new powers. The film is being directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, working on the most recent script was penned by Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
Jude Law could end up joining a cast that also includes Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn. Captain Marvel is scheduled for cinematic release on the 8th March 2019.
