After years of rumors, Marvel’s Thunderbolts are officially in the works, director Jake Schreier will direct the Thunderbolts movie continuing the Marvel studios, and thanks to the announcements from 2022’s Sdcc and D23 expo. Thunderbolt’s MCU film will likely be quite different from its Marvel comics, the Thunderbolts are far more morally gray than the Avengers.
Here with the help of this article, we will discuss everything about MCU’s phase five’s upcoming film Thunderbolts including its release date, star cast, and more.
Thunderbolts Storyline Speculation
At the moment plot details for Thunderbolts are being kept well under wraps and it’s not clear that there’s a script yet. However, there are plenty of ways for the MCU to go with this. Zemo’s ending in The Falcon and winter soldier clearly sets up more of him in the future. It’s entirely possible that the MCU adopt some version of the team’s origin story from the comics in which Zemo recruits a group of villains.
Thunderbolts Film Star Cast and Characters
Marvel studios confirmed the team’s members to be comprised entirely of previously seen MCU characters such as Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes aka the winter soldier, David Harbor as Red Guardian, Wyatt Russell as John Walker aka U.S Agent, Olga Kirilenko as the taskmaster, Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost and Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Valentina Allegra De Fontaine.
Thunderbolts Film Release Date
The film is slated to begin shooting in the summer of 2023 and its official release date, for now, is December 20, 2024. Marvel’s Thunderbolt stands in a unique position at the tail end of phase five, featuring characters that have already been thoroughly introduced but representing the formation of a new team.
