The character that Law will not be the villain of the piece as Ben Mendelsohn has already been signed up for that role.

The film will be set in the 1990s with Samuel L. Jackson expected to reprise his role as Nick Fury.

With the Kree-Skrull War coming to the MCU, it only makes sense for Mar-Vell to make his way to Earth to help stop the invasion in Captain Marvel.
