Carol Danvers received her powers following an incident in which Mar-Vell's Kree DNA was fused with her human DNA during an explosion, imbuing her with the powers of flight and super strength.
According to Variety, which broke the casting news, Law will be playing Dr. Walter Lawson, aka Mar-Vell, who becomes a mentor to Carol as she adjusts to her newfound powers. In addition to Larson, Law joins Samuel L. Jackson who reprises his role as a two-eyed Nick Fury as Marvel is dialing back the clock for the film, setting it during the 1990s. Already on board to play the title character is none other than Oscar-winner Brie Larson. He'll also be seen in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, playing Young Dumbledore opposite Johnny Depp (ugh) as Young Grindelwald. Variety reports that Law's character will also be Mar-Vell in the upcoming film. However, it's only now that Marvel and directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have started to build the cast around her. One thing we know for sure: the film is going to be a bit of a prequel for the MCU, set almost 20 years before the events of the original 2008 Iron Man. He will likely play the leader of the Skrulls, a race of shape-shifting aliens from the comics which are set to make their first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the film.
