The man who seems to be in every movie of the last 20 years has now joined the MCU as Captain Marvel. Jude Law is reportedly in negotiations to star opposite Brie Larson, who will be playing the titular character. No major information yet on who he will be playing, but we do know he will be a mentor to Carol Danvers. As usual, Kevin Feige will be producing alongside with Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.
Captain Marvel will see the return of Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury sans eyepatch. The movie will be set in the 90’s before he lost his eye, but hopefully, he has the hair from the hit 90’s film Pulp Fiction. One can only hope. Alongside Jackson will be Ben Mendohlson, who will be playing the yet unnamed villain of the movie.
With Law joining Captain Marvel, we now have both modern versions of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson (Downey Jr and Law, Cumberbatch and Freeman). Which isn’t really news, just cool to think about.
