When Jude Law was first thrown in Captain Marvel, fans immediately assumed that the choreographed jawed actor played the heroic Mar-Vell – the first character of Marvel Comics to hold the title Captain Marvel. But as marketing for Captain Marvel began to roll out, Law's mystery role was still suspiciously kept under cover.
Now a leaked image of toy products to the movie reveals just who Jude Law is playing in Captain Marvel. But be careful, it's not who you expect and can spell enormously potential spoilers for the movie.
A leaked picture from Funko's coming Captain Marvel Pop! The series reveals that Jude Laws Captain Marvel Character is none other than Yon-Rogg, the Kree-Military Commander and one of Carol Danvers great hostile.
The image of Captain Marvel Funko Pop! line-up was posted to Reddit and found by CBR.com, which discovered the protagonist reveals. "Funko toy lineup clearly shows two important members of the Kree armada: Brie Larson's Carol Danvers and what seems to be Laws Yon-Rogg, as he is the only other prominent Starforce member in the film," writes CBR.com.
But in Funko's official press release for Captain Marvel Pop! line-up, the act's character is just listed as "Kree military officer Star Commander," holds his description as a Kree military officer but hides his official name with the redundant "Star Commander" title. Coming out after the leak has gone through interwebs, this may be an attempt by Funko to conceal Law's identity. But it's not Funko's mistake – this is not the first time that a toy island accidentally destroyed a superhero movie.
So who is Yon-Rogg? Introduced in Marvel Comics in 1967, Yon-Rogg is a great captain Marvel Rogue who comes from Kree-alien species, the same race as Ronan Accuser from Galaxian Guardians. This would explain Captain Marvel promotional image showing the nature of the law that stands next to Lee PaceS villain In the comics, Yon-Rogg had a deep hatred against Mar-Vell, but is a frequent villain especially for Carol Danvers, who has been indirectly responsible for how she got her power.
It can explain why the identity of the law's character has been kept so closely under cover. It points out that he becomes the potential Big Bad two Brie LarsonCaptain Marvel, rather than – or maybe in legion with – Ben MendelsohnS Skrull stranger. Or maybe he begins as an ally before he robs her. We do not know before the movie directed by Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, hit theaters in March.
