Ben Mendelsohn eyed for villain role in Captain Marvel

Ben Mendelsohn eyed for villain role in Captain Marvel”

Captain Marvel may have just found the ideal actor to star opposite Brie Larson as the upcoming film's big villain!

Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8, 2019. But according to MCU boss Kevin Feige, she will be a part of Avengers 4, and her debut film may answer exactly how.

During the recent San Diego Comic Conference, the production revealed that the superhero film is set to feature a story in the 90s.

With this adjustment, the Air Force pilot will gain superpowers in terms of strength, flight, and energy protection.

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck were recruited by Marvel to direct the studio's first female-led film after an exhaustive director search. Outside of Larson and Samuel L. Jackson, who will his return as Nick Fury, Mendelsohn is the first new casting to be announced for the project. More recently, Danvers took on the identity of Captain Marvel after being "promoted" to the moniker of the former Kree superhero.

After an exhausting director search, it was reported by Collider that the directorial duo had previously worked with Mendelsohn on his previous film, "Mississippi Grind".

Fans may recognize Mendelsohn from another famous comic book movie, the Christopher Nolan-directed The Dark Knight Rises, in which he played John Daggett. Mendelsohn is set to star alongside Gary Oldman. The Rogue One and Place Beyond the Pines star has made a career playing villains, criminals, and all shades of shady characters, and he's poised to put his sinister charisma to use once again in the MCU.

Mendelsohn is no stranger to villainy, with bad-guy roles in the Star Wars spin-off Rogue One and the upcoming movies Ready Player One and Robin Hood.
