A major character in the Captain Marvel mythos, Yon-Rogg, has been confirmed to make an appearance in the movie by one of its producers.
There’s only a couple months left until Captain Marvel and huge news has been released about what exactly we can expect from Marvel’s first female-led movie. Of course, there are still many mysteries being kept under wraps by Marvel Studios, one of them being who exactly Jude Law’s character is. The actor was originally said to be playing Mar-Vell, but it’s been rumored that he’s actually Yon-Rogg. In an interview with ScreenRant, producer Jonathan Schwartz was asked if Yon-Rogg will make an appearance in the upcoming movie. Here’s what he told the site:
“Yon-Rogg does pop up, yeah. He’s an important part of the mythology.”
Although after that he didn’t have much to say about the character or who was playing him, fans can now possibly theorize what they can expect from the movie. It could still be Law, but there’s also the chance it’s an unlisted actor they’re trying to keep as a surprise for the movie. Yon-Rogg is a Kree villain and an integral part to the origins of Carol Danvers, contributing to how she gets her powers. Whether the role is minor or major, we can expect to see the villain to appear.
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.
The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
