The first Captain Marvel trailer came out yesterday and it just blew us away. What was so amazing about the trailer was the fact that the movie is actually taking a very different approach to Captain Marvel’s origin story. It suggested that Carol Danvers will have been Captain Marvel for a while and from there on, we might be shown her pre-Captain Marvel days before she was sent to space which led to her joining the Kree army led by Mar-Vell (Jude Law).
But since the movie is taking such a different approach, what if we are being completely misled? What if, the so-called “Hero” that we have heard of till now, is actually the main big bad villain of the film? Given that the trailer was so heavy on Captain Marvel, it only teased Jude Law’s character Mar-Vell, who is the leader of the Kree Starforce. But given that we saw Carol’s pre-Kree memories wiped away was it Jude Law’s character who did that?
Jude Law is a big name in Hollywood and he cannot just be sidelined as just a supporting actor in the film. We know that Ben Mendelsohn will be playing the leader of the Skrulls who are the villains in the film, but what if the Skrulls aren’t the only villains in the film? While most people saw him as the captain of the Kree Starforce looking shocked at something, there was a very quick glimpse which played towards the end of the trailer which actually hints him to be something we did not expect.
In the final moments of the trailer, we see Larson don her trademark Captain Marvel suit and there was a shot where they show a closeup of her fist in her red gloves. What most people did not notice here is the individual standing in front of Captain Marvel in the blur. That individual seems to be wearing a blackish/grayish armour and does seem to be none other than Jude Law! It could be Ben Mendelsohn but we are going with Jude Law, so are we being completely misled?
POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD
People were amazed to see Jude Law cast as the infamous “Mar-Vell” but they may be in for a completely shocking surprise here. There’s a theory that suggests Captain Marvel’s memories have been wiped off by Jude Law’s character. We may be wrong here but the facts do point in a direction which states Jude Law to be the main villain.
According to the theory, the Jude Law’s character who is reported to be Mar-Vell is indeed a misdirection, he is actually a mysterious Starforce commander who has wiped off memories of Captain Marvel who is half-Kree, half-human. Well, he could really be Yon-Rogg from the comics who believed in the supremacy of the Kree race, so much so that he restored their warlike heritage. In fact, he fought against Mar-Vell but died when Kree device Psyche-Magnetron exploded.
Honestly, this would be an amazing storyline! Law’s character trains Carol, gets closer to her, but towards the end when she finds out about it, she feels betrayed and gives us a battle that proves why Captain Marvel is the strongest Avenger!
Carol finding out about Law being the one to wipe her memory off may be the reason why she dons her Blue, Red and Gold suit switching from her Kree Battle Armour. The trademark suit from the comics would probably portray as a Superhero that belongs to Earth, and not the Kree World Hala. The Kree and Earth may have to work side-by-side to take on the Skrulls, but finding out about the intentions of Kree and her true origin, which happened on Earth, Carol may choose Earth parting ways from the Kree.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.
