ROGUE ONE Actor Ben Mendelsohn's Villainous CAPTAIN MARVEL Role May Have Been Revealed.
We recently received confirmation that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story actor Ben Mendelsohn would play the villain in the Captain Marvel movie, and now we might just know which character he'll be portraying.
The recent news that Jude Law had been cast as Mar-Vell in the upcoming Captain Marvel movie came with confirmation that Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One, Bloodline, Animal Kingdom) had signed on as the baddie, and now we may know which Marvel Comics character he'll be suiting up as.
According to That Hashtag Show, Mendelsohn will play tyrannical Kree officer, Yon-Rogg. In the comics, Rogg was originally an enemy of Mar-Vell's who kidnapped Carol Danvers in an effort to draw out his former crew-mate. Their subsequent battle resulted in Danvers gaining her powers.
Most of us assumed Mendelsohn had been cast as a Kree character so this probably wouldn't be too much of a surprise, but even so, let's keep that pinch of salt handy until we know more.
