Law is expected to play the character of Doctor Walter Lawson, who becomes a mentor of sorts to Danvers as she tries to figure out her new powers, reported Variety.

The 44-year-old actor was recently cast as young Albus Dumbledore for the Fantastic Beasts sequel. Ben Mendelsohn is confirmed to play the antagonist in the film, which will be helmed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.

Geneva Robertson-Dworet has penned the most recent script, along with Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman writing the previous drafts.

The plot follows 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.
Captain Marvel is expected to arrive in theatres on March 8, 2019.

Loki is all about conceptual chaos, but how long can Marvel stick to its multiple timelines?

Marvel will not be able to sustain the full heft of the master narrative, that is unless it fully embraces chaos, and lets the MCU fracture into separate multiverses without such a restrictive overarching timeline.
