Skrull Details Revealed in Captain Marvel

Skrull Details Revealed in Captain Marvel
Back in July, Marvel confirmed at Comic-Con that the villains in Captain Marvel will be the iconic aliens known as the Skrulls, and that the movie will be set in the 1990s. While the cast is starting to be built around Brie Larson's Carol Danvers, with Jude Law portraying Mar-Vell and Ben Mendelsohn portraying the villain, rumored to be Yon-Rogg, new details have come forth about three important characters that are currently being cast, which may all be key Skrulls characters. There will be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

The brief casting breakdowns do not specifically state that these characters are in fact Skrulls, but there is some evidence that these mysterious characters named "Alpha," "Delta," and "Supporting Male #2" may in fact be Skrulls known as Annelle, Dorrek VII and Titannus, respectively. There has been no confirmation as of yet if any of these

The cast is starting to come together for Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel, with Brie Larson (Carol Danvers) recently being joined by Ben Mendelsohn as the villain and Jude Law as the iconic Kree superhero Mar-Vell, a.k.a. Dr. Richard Lawson. As is often the case with Marvel villains, the identity of Ben Mendelsohn's character is being kept under wraps, but a new report may have just revealed who this character is. If you don't want to know the identity of this character, there will be potential Spoilers below, and although this report has not been confirmed, you should still read on at your own risk.

Kevin Feige Wishes The McU Had The First Female Superhero Film

Say what you like about the woes of the Dceu, but at least it gave us Patty JenkinsWonder Woman. The film not only proved that a female-fronted superhero movie could be a box office hit, but is a cut above most other blockbusters in characterization, narrative scope and cinematography.

So, despite his McU brainchild repeatedly cleaning up in theaters and another 20 instalments planned, it’s not surprising that one of Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige’s few regrets is that he was beaten to the punch in making a film with a female superhero front and centre. This info comes from Vanity Fair’s excellent interview with him, where he’s asked what he thought of Wonder Woman and said, “I think it’s always fun to be first with most things.”

It sounds a tiny bit tinged with regret, and one of the few inarguable flaws with

Avengers 4 Casting Call Reveals A Big Scarlet Witch And Vision Spoiler

Filming on Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers 4 has been taking place in Atlanta for a while now, which has fast become a hub for all things Marvel Studios, given that the city also recently hosted Ant-Man and the Wasp. Not only that, but Captain Marvel is expected to swoop into production early next year there as well, when it’s believed that a number of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will cross over into Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s nascent spinoff.

The jury’s still out on that one, mind you, but we’re now learning that Avengers 4 may feature some exciting developments for Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), who are expected to have fairly large roles in the blockbuster. In fact, we’ve already had set pics showing the two getting very close indeed, with a few of the shots suggesting that Vision will have his Infinity Stone removed,

Rogue One’s Ben Mendelsohn Wants To Play Doctor Doom

He’s undoubtedly one of the greatest comic book villains ever, but the adaptations of Doctor Doom we’ve seen on the big screen so far have unfailingly dropped the ball. 2005’s Fantastic Four and its sequel, 2007’s Rise of the Silver Surfer, featured a miscast Julian McMahon as Victor Von Doom while Toby Kebbell’s interpretation in 2015’s Ff reboot was just one of many things that was terrible about that particular movie.

Hopefully, we’ll get a much more faithful and successful version of the sorcerer/scientist king of Latveria in the not too distant future, as it’s been announced that Doom will be featuring in his own standalone outing pretty soon. And while no casting has been revealed just yet, one actor has made clear how much he would love to play the part.

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,

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

Avengers 4 To Whisk Captain America Back In Time?

Steve Rogers has always been known as the man out of time (and rightly so), but it looks like Marvel’s star-spangled patriot will be paying a visit to post-war America when Avengers 4 rolls around in 2018.

Filming on the Joe and Anthony Russo sequel has been taking place in Atlanta, which has fast become a hub for all things Marvel Studios, given the city recently hosted Ant-Man and the Wasp – incidentally, Captain Marvel is expected to swoop into production early next year there as well, when it’s believed that a number of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will cross over into Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s nascent spinoff.

The jury’s still out on that one, mind you, but we’re now learning that Avengers 4 may feature another flashback – this time, it’ll be all about Steve Rogers, as he returns home from the front lines of World War II.

Can We Expect Characters From Avengers 4 To Cross Over Into Captain Marvel?

One glance at Marvel’s jam-packed slate will tell you that there are two spinoff movies separating Infinity War and the so-far untitled Avengers 4: Ant-Man and the Wasp which just wrapped production in Atlanta, and Captain Marvel, the long-anticipated standalone pic that is expected to begin shooting early next year…also in Atlanta.

Largely set in the 1990s, the Brie Larson-fronted Captain Marvel movie is coming to us by way of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who are due to get the cameras rolling in March of 2018 – almost one year ahead of the film’s planned release. But a new report unearthed by McU Exchange asserts that Marvel has earmarked a week-long filming session in January, and is expected to fill out many of Captain Marvel‘s key roles before the year’s end.

Leaked Avengers 4 Set Photos Point To A S.H.I.E.L.D. Resurgence

Both Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) have been tipped to appear in the so-far untitled Avengers 4, but can we expect a S.H.I.E.L.D. resurgence, too?

The Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division was essentially dismantled soon after Captain America: The Winter Soldier three years ago, while Nick Fury hasn’t been involved in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Age of Ultron.

That all changes with the release of Captain Marvel in 2019 though, when Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s spinoff will seemingly set Jackson opposite Brie Larson, and effectively complete their mini Skull Island reunion. And after that? Well, rumors of Slj’s involvement in Avengers 4 continue to simmer, and this new batch of set photos only add fuel to the fire. First unearthed by Cosmic Book News, one tweet mentions that “S.H.I.E.L.D. agents” have been spotted in Atlanta.
