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.

Taika Waititi Open To Directing Other Marvel Characters, But Will Likely Stick With Thor

Long before the Russo Brothers (Avengers: Infinity War) became Marvel’s bankable duo within the McU, Kevin Feige and Co. made a point of recruiting a wide variety of filmmaking talent – from Kenneth Branagh to James Gunn, the list of directors hitherto is truly remarkable.

That’s a tradition that will continue long into Phase 4, with Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Captain Marvel) being the latest additions to the fold. But if Taika Waititi has his way – and given the meteoric success of Thor: Ragnarok, we’re inclined to believe he’ll soon hold sway over the God of Thunder’s future – it won’t be long before he’s orchestrating another comic book tentpole for the folks at Marvel Studios.

Indeed, the New Zealand director has already gone on record about his desire to collaborate with Marvel in the not-so-distant future, and when Screen Rant caught up with Waititi to discuss all things Ragnarok,

Captain Marvel to begin filming in February 2018

It looks like we have an official start date for Captain Marvel, with Omega Underground reporting that filming on Marvel’s first female-led superhero movie is set to begin in Los Angeles in February 2018.

Captain Marvel is being directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, and sees Oscar-winner Brie Larson taking on the role of Carol Danvers as she battles the shape-shifting aliens the Skrulls in the 1990s. Samuel L. Jackson is expected to reprise the role of Nick Fury, while Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s Ben Mendelsohn is in talks to portray the main villain.

The film is set for release on March 8th 2019, and will mark Carol Danvers’ big screen debut, although Larson is currently portraying the character in the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4, which doesn’t come out until May 3rd 2019.

Interestingly, this won’t be the only Captain Marvel film shooting in February, as Warner Bros.

Captain Marvel Reportedly Locked In For A February Start In Los Angeles

The City of Angels is about to play host to Carol Danvers.

My Entertainment World (via Omega Underground) brings word that Captain Marvel, Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s long-gestating origin story, has been slated for a February start date in Los Angeles.

Rumor has it that Marvel had originally earmarked the 2019 spinoff for a January start, but new tax incentives – coupled with the sheer amount of high-profile films lensing in Atlanta – encouraged the Powers That Be to trade Georgia for California. That’s not to say that Atlanta has been shunned altogether; thanks to Ant-Man and the Wasp and the so-far unnamed Avengers 4, Marvel still has a sizeable presence in the area, but the decision to film Captain Marvel in Los Angeles could herald the beginning of a new era.

Mind you, similar to how James Gunn captured most, if not all of Guardians of the Galaxy on internal sound stages,
