Jude Law - who will play a young Albus Dumbledore in the upcoming Harry Potter spinoff "Fantastic Beasts" sequel - is now in talks to land a lead role opposite Brie Larson in Marvel's "Captain Marvel". Subsequently, she gains powers such as flight, enhanced strength, damage resistance and the ability to absorb and re-channel energy.

Carol Danvers, meet your mentor.

Of course, there is one character can play: Mar-Vell, the original Captain Marvel, who has already been rumored to be a part of the film by our friends over at MCU Exchange.

Variety now reports that Law is "in negotiations" to play the male lead/mentor role of Doctor Walter Lawson.

He's played lotharios, vicious villains and movie heroes, but he's never appeared in a Marvel movie, until now.

Captain Carol Danvers will meet her predecessor when she takes up the mantle of Marvel's Captain Marvel in 2019-and when she does, he'll look a lot like actor Jude Law.

The most recent script was written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet with previous drafts penned by Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman. She then became the superhero known as Ms. Marvel, but recently assumed the full identity of Captain Marvel in the comics. He is also still attached to star in a third "Sherlock Holmes" film, which Warner Bros.is now developing.

Details on Captain Marvel are still mostly under wraps, but we know it'll be an origin story set in the early 1990s.
