During the SDCC Marvel Panel last July, Kevin Feige made a lot of fans very happy when they announces that Marvel Studios is moving forward with a project for the Thunderbolts. Reports also revealed that director Jake Schreier will be joining and Black Widow writer Eric Pearson will be penning the script.
The film was first set to develop in June of 2022. More details haven’t been released yet about the film’s major casting, but some familiar faces have been revealed who will be making an appearance. Although it’s easy to speculate a comic book material, predictions can go a long way if we leave this in the hand of fans to uncover potential details.
Who Will Be In Marvel’s ‘Thunderbolts’?
According to recent reports, some of the characters were revealed who could potentially be making an appearance in the upcoming film. Some of the best-known faces include Baron Zemo, Yelena Belova, Ghost, Taskmaster, The Abomination, US Agent, Titania as well as the Winter Soldier.
Although, it’s easy to guess that Marvel wouldn’t use an opportunity like this to not open the way in MCU for one more new character. The Thunderbolts consist of major characters which we have enjoyed countless times throughout the pages of the comics and characters like Moonstone, Beetle, or Hyperion seem to be like potential members that could join the team.
Marvel’s Thunderbolts Movie Is Set to Move Forward, Plot Revealed
In the pages of Marvel Comics, the mentioned characters were part of a supervillain group assembled by Baron Zemo. Basically, it was just the supervillain team often known as “Masters of Evil” masked as superheroes. The story continues with Zemo who had taken big advantage of the loss of Earth’s heroes to destroy and create a new team of supposed heroes. But the action didn’t last long, however, the creation of the Thunderbolts stayed. From then, the batch started their journey and existed over the years and many other Marvel characters have evolved in and out of their ranks.
At San Diego Comic-Con 2022, it was officially announced that the Thunderbolts movie will be released on July 26, 2024, as the last film in Marvel’s Phase 5.
