A Captain Marvel tie-in book has confirmed that Jude Law will be playing the character Yon-Rogg.
Captain Marvel hits theaters in a few weeks and one of its best-kept secrets so far has been the role that Jude Law will be playing. The footage shown from the film so far has featured Jude Law’s character acting as a mentor to Brie Larson’s character Carol Danvers, as well as the leader of the Kree military squad known as Starforce. Marvel recently published a book focusing on the team titled Starforce on the Rise, written by Steve Behling, and it finally reveals who the Sherlock Holmes star will be playing.
ScreenRant has reported that the Captain Marvel tie-in book reveals the identity of Jude Law’s character to be Yon-Rogg. Fans of the Marvel comics might remember that Yon-Rogg has an interesting history with both Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, as well as returning Marvel Cinematic Universe villain Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace), who was previously seen and defeated in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy but will make his return in the nineties-set origin story.
One of the popular theories for months was that Jude Law will play Mar-Vell in the film but that won’t be the case, so the classic Captain Marvel could still potentially show up on the big screen somewhere in the future. Since the next phase of the MCU is still mostly a mystery, there’s no telling where the iconic character could make his debut.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Captain Marvel as soon as more information becomes available. How big of a role do you think Yon-Rogg will play in the film? Are you excited to hear that this is who Jude Law is playing or do you wish he was playing a different MCU character? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
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.
Directed by Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.
Captain Marvel will be released in theaters on March 8, 2019.
Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
