"Captain Marvel" centers around Air Force pilot Carol Danvers (Larson), whose body is infused with alien powers after she's involved in an accident.
Jude Law is in discussions to star alongside Brie Larson in Captain Marvel. There are now no specific details on his role, but Variety, which first reported the news, says Law will play a mentor to the new superhero. While he held the name Captain Marvel, Carol became Ms. Marvel in her own comic book series in 1977.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe just added yet another impeccable performer to its ranks.
Repped by WME, Julian Belfrage Associates and Karl Austen, Law recently signed on for the role of young Albus Dumbledore in Warner Bros' Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Gindenwald and finished Woody Allen's latest untitled movie and the spy thriller The Rhythm Section with Blake Lively.
Is Jude Law set to star in 'Captain Marvel' alongside Brie Larson?
At this year's San Diego Comic-Con, Feige announced that the superhero film will be set in the '90s, before the Avengers ever thought of assembling, and Samuel L. Jackson is expected to reprise his role as Nick Fury.
It'll release shortly after Captain Marvel in 2019, though there have been rumblings that a select number of costumed crusaders will cross over into the Larson-fronted spinoff.
Ben Mendelson was previously reported as playing the movie's as-yet-unnamed villain.
The mentor of Captain Marvel has been found. The Oscar-winning Room actress was cast as Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel last July.
