Disney has finally announced who Jude Law is playing in the upcoming film, “Captain Marvel.” In a photo posted Thursday to Disney.com, a caption reads: “The Leader of Starforce.” Law’s character was previously described without a name as a “mentor” to Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel.
“Captain Marvel” is the studio’s first female superhero to have her own standalone movie. Samuel L. Jackson will also return as Nick Fury for the film.
“The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe,” says Disney’s website.
“Captain Marvel” release date is March 8th.
