Ben Mendelsohn is making one hell of a name for himself as a big-budget baddie. After his most villainous turn yet in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, it looks like the actor might step into another successful Disney-owned franchise, the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

According to Variety, directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck want Mendelsohn to portray the villain in Captain Marvel, a film which will see Brie Larson take on the role of Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel. Marvel boss Kevin Feige has previously stated that the Kree will have a role in the movie, so it’s safe to assume that Mendelsohn will be a member/leader of the alien race.

It’s important to know that Mendelsohn hasn’t been cast yet, but since Boden and Fleck have already worked with him on Mississippi Grind, there’s a good chance that Marvel has found its Captain Marvel villain.
