The MCU fanbase is big on Captain Marvel right now, thanks in no small part to the film’s recent trailer, which arrived earlier this month and gave us a whole lot to process, from dangerous old ladies to Nick Fury’s cute little friend. And only adding to the hype levels is a brand new still that comes to us courtesy of Empire.
Seen in the gallery down below, it’s unclear what exactly’s going on here, but we can see Jude Law’s mysterious character with Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers and he appears to be training her. Unfortunately, the outlet didn’t offer up any hints as to who Law may be playing, but the fans have pretty much nailed it down already, despite Marvel trying their hardest to keep things under wraps.
It’s all but confirmed that he’s going to be taking on the role of Yon-Rogg, a Kree military commander who keeps his eye on events on Earth. He goes on to become one of Captain Marvel’s (the Danvers version) most dangerous foes though, and is also indirectly responsible for her gaining her incredible cosmic powers.
While we’re still a few months away from meeting the MCU’s most powerful hero, this new still from Empire certainly has us excited and it’s becoming pretty clear that so far, folks are liking what they’re seeing of the film. What’s more, Ben Mendelsohn, who plays Talos, had some encouraging words of his own to offer up in a recent interview, saying that Captain Marvel is “something really special,” praising the script in particular as “finely crafted” and “absolutely beautiful.”
Excited yet? We sure are, as the more we see and hear about Carol’s first standalone outing, the more eager we become to finally lay eyes on it. There’s tons riding on Captain Marvel, that’s for sure sure, given that it’s the studio’s first female-led effort and all, but something tells us they’ll be able to deliver.
