Ben Mendelsohn In Talks For “Captain Marvel”

Ben Mendelsohn (“Rogue One,” “The Dark Knight Rises”) is in talks to star as the villain in the upcoming “Captain Marvel” feature for Marvel Studios.

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who previously worked with Mendelsohn on “Mississippi Grind,” are in talks with the actor to join the 1990s-set film in which he’s expected to play the leader of the Skrulls.

Brie Larson is set to star in title role of Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. The resulting alteration imbues her with the superpowers of strength, energy projection, and flight.

Samuel L. Jackson is expected to reprise his role as Nick Fury. Geneva Robertson-Dworet penned the most recent draft of the script following Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman penning previous drafts. Kevin Feige is producing the film which opens March 8th 2019.
