Now, it appears that we have official confirmation of the same.

It is here that Law's character was officially confirmed to be Yon-Rogg, who is one of the most memorable villains of Captain Marvel from the comics.

Character reveal

After secrecy, Law's character finally gains clarity

When Law was first shown in the trailers people believed him to be Mar-Vell, Danvers' inspiration in comics.

However, Law went to great lengths to avoid naming his character and when Marvel began marketing the upcoming film, they too kept it shrouded in mystery.

However, the lid has been blown, thanks to the novel despite initial reticence about revealing the character's name.


What does Yon-Rogg's revelation mean for the movie?

Marvel's secrecy around Yon-Rogg's character is understandable.

In revealing the villainous character, fans can understand that the Kree Starforce is not the team of 'noble warrior heroes' that Danvers believes them to be.

In all likelihood, over the course of the film, Law will fully embrace the character of the antagonist and face off against Danvers who has to embrace her Captain Marvel persona.
