A New Toy Leak Casts Doubt on ‘Mar-Vell’ in Captain Marvel

If you’ve been riding the Mar-Vell/Yon-Rogg roller coaster, the last couple of days have been a bumpy ride.

Yesterday people spotted an entry on Disney’s official Captain Marvel site where they said that Jude Law was playing “Mar-Vell” in the movie, only to edit and remove the entry later in the afternoon.

Now a new image from the Marvel Legends action figure line has hit the internet (you can view it on Twitter here), and it features a Yon-Rogg figure. Even more important is the description for Yon-Rogg on the packaging:

“Leader of the Starforce team, Yon-Rogg is a hero among the Kree and a key asset to the Supreme Intelligence in the war against the Skrulls.”

The official Disney site, after being edited last night, describes Jude Law’s character as Leader of the Starforce:

If that site describes him as “Leader of the Starforce”, and the Yon-Rogg toy packaging describes the character with the exact same phrase; it seems likely that they are the same person.
