Out of nowhere, Marvel announced that they have found a director for their next film thunderbolts Movie. Simply the rumor that the MCU adds thunderbolts is Marvel’s equivalent to The Suicide Squad.
Not much is known beyond the film at this time, but there’s a lot of speculation based on the comics and based on the MCU’s state to date. The recent string of films has added more complex anti-heroes to the cast, which means thunderbolts could bring familiar faces back to the screen while introducing new characters.
What we do know for sure so far is that Jake Schreier will be directing it afterwards meetinghis “presentation over the past few weeks has blown away executives and eventually got him the job.” Black widow Screenwriter Eric Pearson will write that thunderbolts Screenplay produced by Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios.
as we said thunderbolts is effectively Marvel’s version of The Suicide Squad. The team consists of a group of villains who are sent on missions on behalf of the government (we told you).
There is speculation as to which characters already introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe could be introduced. sources told meeting that Marvel has already reached out to certain actors involved in the MCU to keep their summer 2023 schedules free for filming.
An easy guess for a character is General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, played by William Hurt in the MCU films The incredible Hulk, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame and Black widow.
Also, we got to see Baron Zemo (the villain turned anti-hero). Falcon and the Winter Soldier), Black widow‘s Yelena Belova and Taskmaster, Ghost (Ant Man and the Wasp), The Abomination (who appeared as a supporting character in previous films but stars in the upcoming one She Hulk Show), US Agent and The Winter Soldier (both from the Falcon show) given their less than firm understanding of morality.
With Black widow‘s screenwriter is working on thunderboltsit’s easy to give more credence to the performances of Taskmaster, Yelena, and Ross, but again, it’s all conjecture.
If all of those above characters were included, that would mean a cast list of the above Hurt, Daniel Brühl, Florence Pugh, Olga Kurylenko, Hannah John-Kamen, Tim Roth (or, well, his voice), Wyatt Russell, and Sebastian Stan. In the comics, two of these characters are canonically part of the thunderbolts Team: Baron Zemo and Taskmaster.
Thunderbolts have been in Marvel Comics for a long time, appearing in everything from the X-Men Universe to the Spider-Verse, from Luke Cage to Marvel Zombies. Where this new Thunderbolts movie fits into the ever-expanding MCU remains to be seen.
If filming starts next summer, we could be considering a late 2024 release, but again, that’s a guess on our part, since Marvel plans things pretty far in advance. Rating-wise, we can’t imagine Marvel taking a leaf out of DC’s book and going for the full James Gunn-style R-vibe, especially when the film intends to blend in with the rest of the oeuvre.
All of this saying, there’s little we know for sure but plenty to get excited about.
