Jude Law to star opposite Brie Larson in Captian Marvel
Los Angeles, Nov 23 : Actor Jude Law is in talks to play the male actor against Oscar-winning actor Brie Larson in “Captain Marvel”.
Larson will present the lead role in Marvel’s film, which will also see Samuel L Jackson resuming his role as Nick Fury of the franchise “The Avengers”.
Law is expected to play the character of Dr. Walter Lawson, who becomes a mentor for Danvers as she tries to understand his new powers, Variety reported.
The 44-year-old actor was recently selected as young Albus Dumbledore for the Fantastic Beasts series.
Ben Mendelsohn is confirmed to play the antagonist in the film, which will be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.
Geneva Robertson-Dworet wrote the most recent screenplay, with Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman writing the previous versions.
