We are done with all the Superhero films of 2018. This year was huge for the superhero genre as every comic book movie that came out turned out to be a major success. In fact, these were the films that pulled people to the theatres offering something new and unique with each film, while other genres just failed to cater to the needs of the audiences. If you thought that 2018 was the best, then wait till the next one as 2019 brings us big guns like Captain Marvel, Avengers 4, Spider-Man: Far From Home and more.
There’s quite a lot that we don’t know about this film, but people are still really hyped about it and that what the case should be with every film. At this point, People are sort of clueless about Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel, but they do know a whole lot about Spider-Man: Far From Home even though we haven’t got a trailer yet! So, Kudos to Marvel for the way they are marketing the film.
One of the mysteries that we’ve had about the film is about Jude Law’s character. Right from the start, he was being claimed to be the infamous Mar-Vell, but later on, as we got the first trailer, people had their speculations that he may actually be playing one of the antagonists of the movie. Then as you can see above, a leak for the Funko Pop toys revealed Jude Law’s character as the villainous Yon Rogg.
This was supposed to be a spoiler for the film, but there is a little twist in the tale as Captain Marvel’s official website actually reads Jude Law’s character as Mar-Vell. If you focus on the image above, you’ll find the description given to be – “Jude Law as Mar-Vell, the leader of Starforce.”
Now we really don’t know what to believe here. Our bet is still on Yon Rogg as that was revealed by a Merchandising company, and more often than not, the info given on the merchandise always turns out to be accurate. The next trailer of Captain Marvel may give us another shot at knowing who Jude Law is playing.
Law spoke to EW about his character in the film and he called him “inspirational.” He said:
“He is driven by a belief in the divine leadership of the Kree people. So he’s almost a devout warrior — unquestioning, conservative, but inspirational.”
Later when Stephen Colbert tried to trick Law into revealing his character on the talk show, he said:
“I can’t tell you who I am, nice try. I think it might be this British-American difference. With Fantastic Beasts, they’re like ‘We assume you’re not going to give away any of these secrets. And if you do, we’re going to tell you not to again and we may quietly kill you. In Marvel. It’s like, ‘DON’T YOU F****** EVER TELL ANYBODY ABOUT THIS!'”
The role will probably stay a mystery until the film comes out. Because there is so much secrecy around the character, people are more inclined to believe that he would turn out to be a villain at the end. Law’s reveal as Yon Rogg will make people go “Ahaa! I knew it!”
But let’s just wait. Hopefully, all our doubts will be cleared soon enough. Captain Marvel is going to take us into the 90s, or more specifically, 1995 and then it will lead us right into Avengers: Endgame. Hopefully, Captain Marvel will pay off the hype that surrounds the film.
