As the Captain Marvel release date approaches, more and more merchandise for the film has been making headway. A card game by the name of Captain Marvel: Secret Skrulls carries some interesting details with it, including what could be the identity of Jude Law’s mysterious Starforce character.
Since he was cast, Jude Law was thought to be playing Walter Lawson/Mar-Vell, the original Captain Marvel and mentor to Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers. But interviews with Law and ambiguous marketing for his character seemed to point to him actually playing Yon-Rogg, who in the comics has been an enemy of Carol Danvers and bore a grudge against Mar-Vell because he was in love with a Kree medic named Una, who had feelings for Mar-Vell.
You can check out images from the game here.
The masked figure to the right of Larson certainly looks like Law, and the third image (which you can see to the left of the main image) gives this character’s name as “Yon-…” before the image cuts off. Clearly, that’s no coincidence.
Do you think Law is playing Yon-Rogg in Captain Marvel? What do you think of this potential reveal? Give us your thoughts in the comment section!
Here’s the synopsis for Captain Marvel:
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.
