There’s no shortage of upcoming Marvel movies that have been officially confirmed by the blade Reboot with Mahershala Ali too Captain America 4 with Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson. But look around online long enough and you’ll find plenty of Marvel movies that have just been rumoured, including one that focuses on the anti-hero team called the Thunderbolts. Well it looks like that thunderbolts The movie is actually happening and already has some key talent in a row.
As shared by Deadline, the “top secret” thunderbolts Movie has recruited Jake Schreier to direct and Eric Pearson to write the script. In addition to directing numerous music videos, Schreier made his film debut in 2012 Robot & Frankand followed along paper cities Three years later. He reportedly got the directing job after impressing executives with his thunderbolts presentation in the last few weeks. Pearson has been in the MCU space for years after writing Black widow and wrote down Thor: Ragnarok with Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost.
Writer Justin Kroll added in a follow up tweet that Marvel sees Thunderbolts as “their version of Suicide Squad,” which makes sense since both teams are made up of villains and anti-heroes who go on missions to protect the world. Although the Thunderbolts differ in whether they carry out US government orders or act as an independent entity. In any case, Kroll also mentioned that there are a handful of characters we met in the MCU that could make up this franchise’s Thunderbolts lineup, including Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova/Black Widow, Olga Kurylenko’s Antonia Dreykov/Taskmaster, Daniel Brühl’s Helmut Zero and Wyatt Russell’s John Walker/US Agent.
Although today’s biggest hint yet is that Thunderbolts are coming into the MCU pipeline, last year Marvel fans caught a glimpse of potential groundwork being laid for the team The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Black widow, notably by Valentina Allegra de Fontaine by Julia Louis-Dreyfus. In the earlier miniseries, she recruited John Walker in the earlier miniseries after he was stripped of his Captain America title and gave him the US agent identity, and in the latter film’s post-credits scene she hired Yelena Belova to Chasing Clint Barton. thus their involvement in hawk eye. Much like Nick Fury put the pieces in place for bringing the Avengers together, Valentina appears to be taking steps to form the Thunderbolts.
In addition to the aforementioned characters, some other possible candidates for the MCU’s Thunderbolts team could include Emil Blonsky/Abomination by Tim Roth (who returns for Disney+ in a few months She Hulk series) and Hannah John-Kamen’s Ava Starr/Ghost (which we met in Ant Man and the Wasp). Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross also sculpted a version of the Thunderbolts in the comics during his Red Hulk days. However, William Hurt passed away back in March, so the MCU would obviously need to recast the role of Ross to bring him back into the game for Thunderbolts or other projects. In summary, think of any surviving anti-hero or major villain on the road to redemption in the MCU, and they’re ideally at least on the proverbial table for the Thunderbolts roster.
Since thunderbolts As we are still early in the development process, it may be a while before we get another important update on the progress. However, once this happens, CinemaBlend will pass it on. Until then, there are plenty of Marvel movies and TV shows you can watch with your Disney+ subscription.
