Besides Larson and Law, Ben Mendelsohn is on board to play the villain, because being on board to play the villain is what Ben Mendelsohn does.

However, it's only now that Marvel and directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have started to build the cast around her.

Jude Law looks set to appear in the upcoming Captain Marvel film opposite lead star Brie Larson. That post has since been updated to include the most pertinent line of the lot: Jude Law's character, Walter Lawson, will be the all-wise mentor for Carol Danvers as she begins to wrangle her superhuman powers under control.

In the comics, Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel was a test pilot who gained super strength and the ability to fly after being caught in an explosion with a Kree device. In the previous year, Law shifted to television playing the lead role in HBO's The Young Pope and playing the main villain in Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. Samuel L. Jackson is supposed to make an appearance as Nick Fury in Captain Marvel as well. It's also thought that Law will return as Mr. Watson in the third Sherlock Holmes movie with Robert Downey, Jr, although there have been few developments on the continuation of that franchise (which is produced by Fantastic Beasts' Lionel Wigram).

The film has a released date set Stateside for March 8, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Captain Marvel as we learn it.
