We have already spent a while with the Kree within the Marvel Cinematic Universe by way of Guardians of the Galaxy and Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D., however this spring, Captain Marvel will mark the deepest exploration but of the alien species. Via circumstances that have not been totally revealed, Carol Danvers was delivered to the Kree house world, Hala, and having misplaced her recollections of being a human on Earth, she’s now combating for the Kree empire on the Starforce navy group. Loads of Kree characters have been introduced to look in Captain Marvel, and now we are able to add one other to the listing: it is lastly been confirmed that Yon-Rogg will want present up within the film. As producer Jonathan Schwartz stated:
Yon-Rogg’s presence in Captain Marvel was among the many many issues revealed throughout a set go to that CinemaBlend’s personal Eric Eisenberg and different reporters attended final 12 months. The character was first rumored to look in Captain Marvel in late 2017, though again then it was speculated that Ben Mendelsohn would play him, and now we all know he is truly taking part in Skrull chief Talos. However the Yon-Rogg speak has picked up steam over the previous few months, as there’s been conflicting experiences about if that is the character Jude Regulation is taking part in.
It needs to be famous that whereas Jonahan Schwartz did verify that Yon-Rogg is in Captain Marvel, he did not say that that is Jude Regulation’s position. When it was first reported that Regulation was being checked out for Captain Marvel, it was stated he’d be taking part in Mar-Vell, the primary Captain Marvel from Marvel Comics’ continuity and Carol Danvers’ mentor. That was later confirmed on the Disney web site, though that info was subsequently deleted. Conversely, leaked toy photographs have labeled Regulation’s character as Yon-Rogg, however Marvel is staying utterly quiet on this matter.
For these of you unfamiliar with Yon-Rogg, within the comics, he’s a Kree navy commander who turned jealous of his subordinate, Mar-Vell, when the girl he liked, Una, turned enamored with Mar-Vell as an alternative. Yon-Rogg subsequently deserted Mar-Vell on Earth and tried to have him killed, which kicked off their antagonistic relationship. Yon-Rogg was additionally not directly answerable for the accident that gave Carol Danvers her powers. So like Jonathan Schwartz famous, he is an essential a part of the Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel mythology, therefore why it was so believable he may present up in her film.
This is what we all know for a truth about Jude Regulation’s character in Captain Marvel: he is the Starforce commander and Carol Danvers’ mentor, coaching her how tips on how to grasp her unimaginable powers. He’s additionally “pushed by a perception within the divine management of the Kree individuals,” which definitely feels like Yon-Rogg. Nevertheless, it is nonetheless doable that Yon-Rogg is being performed by another person, and Jonathan Schwart saying he’ll “pop up” may counsel that he will not be a serious participant within the story. Even with two months to go till Captain Marvel‘s launch, it is nonetheless tough to determine what is going on on right here.
We’ll be taught as soon as and for all what the deal is with the MCU’s Yon-Rogg when Captain Marvel soars into theaters on March 8. You can too look by way of our MCU films information to be taught what this franchise has in improvement.
