“He is driven by a belief in the divine leadership of the Kree people,” Jude Law tells EW.com. “So he’s almost a devout warrior — unquestioning, conservative, but inspirational.”
“These extraordinary powers she has, he sees them as something of a blessing and something that she has to learn how to control,” Jude Law says. “That’s a motif throughout the piece, the element of learning to control one’s emotions and to use your powers wisely.”
In the comics, Mar-Vell is responsible for Carol Danvers getting her powers. However the MCU tends to rejig some details so we’ll wait and see.
“There’s a lot and back and forth that comes with the two of them, which kind of creates a little bit of tension with the rest of Starforce,” Brie Larson adds. “Like, ‘Why do they have a special relationship, and why isn’t it me?’”
“I don’t know that he ever gave me any advice, but he obviously had a great time making these,” Jude Law said. “He talked a little bit about how [making a Marvel movie is like] fitting this one piece into a bigger picture that someone else has got their eyes on, and giving yourself over to that. It’s not about trying to understand everything. Just do your piece.”
Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. Set in the 1990s, the film is an all-new adventure from an unseen period in the history of the MCU.
