Luther recap: season three, episode three | Stuart Heritage

A dizzying, all-out, anything-goes hour of television recalling the best of past series with John Luther tackling an unusual villain

"He's my mate. I love him" – John Luther

Right. Jesus. What the hell was that? Did we just watch Luther's Red Wedding episode? Justin Ripley – poor, sweet Justin Ripley – is dead. Mary Day – poor, slightly annoying Mary Day – is potentially seconds from death. Luther's a hurricane of bereavement, on his knees and bawling his eyes out. After last week's comparative dud, this was Luther with blood in its nostrils, roaring back to its absolute best. It was a dizzying, all-out, anything-goes hour of television.

Ruth Wilson's 'Ms. Marvel,' Starring The 'Luther' Cast

Word has it that "Luther" villain Ruth Wilson is up for the role of Carol Danvers — aka Ms. Marvel — in Joss Whedon's "Avengers" sequel. While the possibility remains firmly in the rumor category, we couldn't stop our minds from running wild with the idea of secret serial killer Alice Morgan carrying the banner as one of the greatest heroes the Marvel Universe has to offer. But what about the rest of the "Luther" cast? Who would they play in Wilson's "Ms. Marvel" movie? Here's what we came up with.

Warning: "Luther" spoilers ahead!

Ruth Wilson as Ms. Marvel

Although I'd always be worried that she'd be this close to seeking out Asgard and going completely psycho-postal on Heimdall, I see why Wilson's name is being connected to Carol Danvers.
