Stellar Fan Art Imagines Jude Law As Mar-Vell In The Captain Marvel Movie

BossLogic is at it again.

With news that Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald) is being courted for the Captain Marvel movie, BossLogic has produced a rather stellar piece that imagines The Young Pope actor as Doctor Walter Lawson (Aka Mar-Vell).

He is, in a nutshell, the mentor figure for Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), who is imbued with superhuman strength, energy projection, and flight soon after her DNA is infused with that of an extra-terrestrial. Now that’s what I call a close encounter.

As for BossLogic’s beautiful rendering, the prolific concept artist has gone for a more classic-inspired look while creating Jude Law’s Mar-Vell. In the comics, that character is often portrayed in military garb, or as a high-ranking Kree soldier, though without any official details to consult, it’s impossible to gauge the direction Marvel will eventually take. Still, if nothing else,

Jude Law Cast as Male Lead in 'Captain Marvel'

  • Movies.com
Marvel begins production on its first solo female superhero movie next March, and we can expect more and more casting announcements as the start date approaches. Here's one now: Variety has just learned, without confirmation yet from the studio, that Jude Law is in negotiations to play the male lead in Captain Marvel opposite Brie Larson's titular character.  Law's role is said to be that of Dr. Walter Lawson, aka Mar-Vell, described as a mentor to Larson's Air Force pilot-turned-hero, Carol Danvers. He was also once known as Captain Marvel in the comics, where he originated as an alien of the Kree race (you may recall the main villain in Guardians of the Galaxy, Ronan the Accuser, is also Kree) who came to Earth to spy on humans before becoming their...

We Now Know Who Jude Law May Be Playing In Captain Marvel

Forget Dr. Watson and 221b Baker Street; former Sherlock Holmes star Jude Law is now in contention to play Doctor Walter Lawson (Aka Mar-Vell) opposite Brie Larson in the Captain Marvel movie.

News broke earlier this afternoon, when Variety revealed that Law had entered talks to join the 2019 spinoff. Should a deal place, he’ll play the film’s male lead alongside Larson and, presumably, Star Wars alum Ben Mendelsohn. 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.

Indeed, those familiar with Marvel Comics will know all too well that Doctor Walter Lawson originally held the title of Captain Marvel, though it’s unclear if that lore will be woven into the fabric of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s solo movie.

Jude Law joins Captain Marvel as Carol Danvers’ mentor

Marvel’s first female-led superhero film has made another big casting decision, with Variety revealing that Jude Law is joining the movie to star as the male lead opposite Brie Larson. There’s no word as to which character Law could be playing, only that he is said to be Carol Danver’s mentor as she navigates her new powers.

Carol Danvers was a member of the United States Air Force until an explosion at her air base combined her DNA with that of the alien race, the Kree, giving her super strength, flight and energy absorption. She then became the superhero known as Ms. Marvel, but recently assumed the full identity of Captain Marvel in the comics.

Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) is reportedly playing the film’s villain, a Skrull warrior while Samuel L. Jackson is expected to reprise his role as Nick Fury, using

Jude Law Joins ‘Captain Marvel’

  • The Playlist
It’s not often that single character from a TV series becomes a meme, but Jude Law‘s titular “The Young Pope” enjoyed a brief life on the Twittersphere earlier this year. Cinephiles in particular were charmed by the eccentric character. And while that probably had little bearing on Marvel‘s decision to recruit the actor for their cinematic universe, it does remind us that the only superhero we want Law to play is The Young Pope.

Captain Marvel Reportedly Eyeing Jude Law For Male Lead

From young Dumbledore to 1990s Marvel?

That’s the latest scoop from Variety, which claims that Jude Law (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald) has opened talks to join Brie Larson as Captain Marvel‘s male lead. Negotiations are ongoing, though assuming a deal falls into place, Law will be rubbing shoulders with Star Wars alum Ben Mendelsohn, who has seemingly signed on to play the villain.

Details of his role are practically non-existent – ditto for Mendelsohn, though there are signs to suggest he’ll be spearheading the Skrulls come 2019 – but Variety notes that Jude Law’s potential character is best described as a mentor to the up-and-coming Carol Danvers.

Who is Danvers, exactly? She’s an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during a near-fatal accident. The resulting alteration imbues her with the superpowers of strength, energy projection, and flight, so it’s

Et Obsessions: ‘Godless,’ Disney’s ‘Coco’ and More This Holiday Weekend!
Here at Et, we’re obsessed with a lot of things -- and this is what we’re most excited about the week of Thanksgiving:

Why We’re Obsessed With ‘Godless

From Steven Soderbergh and Scott Frank (Logan screenwriter) comes a western saga that is both familiar and fresh in its telling of ruthless outlaws terrorizing a town populated only by women when a bandit turns to them for cover. “This story is an authentic western in many ways, but it's a story that hasn't been told. It flips the western genre on its head by having the narrative, at the heart of it, [told through] this town of women,” says Michelle Dockery, who, in the midst of a great post-Downton Abbey run as Letty on TNT’s Good Behavior, plays Alice, one of the town’s widows who takes in Roy (Jack O’Connell). “It's something that people won't have seen before.” Newcomer Audrey Moore, who plays

The producer was speaking to Entertainment Weekly about what we may expect from the big-budget sequel, due next year.

Here’s what he had to say to the outlet.
