There are some actors who seem to make a living on playing assholes. According to Variety, Marvel Studios is currently eyeing one of those actors to play the main villain in their upcoming Captain Marvel movie.

The man in question is Ben Mendelsohn. The outlet states that directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are in talks with Mendelsohn. While not yet confirmed, the villain will likely be the leader of the Skrulls, an alien race that Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige already teased would be involved in the film.

As hinted at above, this isn’t Mendelsohn’s first rodeo as a baddie. He played a real d**k in The Dark Knight Rises, and one of the main antagonists in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. He’s set to continue that trend again in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One, where he’ll be playing Nolan Sorrento, the head of an evil organization dead set on taking over the whole of the OASIS.

With all this experience under his belt, it’s not difficult to see what Boden and Fleck saw in Mendelsohn. Let’s just hope he’ll be a good fit.

Do you think the actor fits the bill as a Skrull baddie? Let us know down below!

Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 6, 2019.
