Captain Marvel’s Jude Law Could Actually Be Yon-Rogg

Reports are coming in that actor Jude Law’s role in Captain Marvel may not be as clean cut as it was originally announced. He could actually be playing Mar-Vell’s nemesis Yon-Rogg. The reveal was done through an action figure. Below was a shot of an advance stock of Marvel Legends’ Captain Marvel wave from Hasbro and its pretty clear that the name has been changed to Yon Rogg. This was the second time that Law’s character was referred to as such. Remember when Funko revealed their Captain Marvel lineup with Jude Law’s character directly referred to as Yon Rogg before being edited as “Starforce Leader” hours later. The character was created by Stan Lee and Gene Colan and first appeared in Marvel Superheroes # 12. The character was depicted as having a jealous personality with a huge disgust for Mar-Vell, partly because of his position and respect among the Kree and because of the affection of medical officer Una. He has sabotaged and tried to get the original Captain Marvel in trouble a number of times with their superior Ronan the Accuser.

There’s no confirmation that he’s playing Rogg or Vell because Law has been tight lipped about the matter. In a recent interview, he was quoted saying:

He is driven by a belief in the divine leadership of the Kree people. So he’s almost a devout warrior – unquestioning, conservative, but inspirational.
