Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) is a well-known Marvel Cinematic Universe character. When she was introduced in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (2021) and made a follow-up appearance in the end credits sequence of Black Widow (2021), she appeared to be re-introducing some more unsavory, morally complex characters from the MCU.
Thunderbolts (2024) is being billed as the definitive chapter in Marvel's Multiverse Saga, bringing together an ensemble cast of previous heroes and anti-heroes from the previous films and Disney+ shows. A live-action adaptation for the Thunderbolts might go in many directions.
At this year's D23 Expo, we finally saw the whole cast and roster of Marvel's Thunderbolts following its announcement at San Diego Comic-Con.
Is There a Trailer for Thunderbolts?
Because the film is so far down in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's schedule, did Kevin Feige have any promotional material to share? It was quite a surprise to see an entire team in all their glory with some lights or camera flashes shining on them.
Valentina, Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), Red Guardian (David Harbour), Yelena Belova (Robot & Frank), U.S. Agent (Wyatt Russell) and Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko) were among the speakers who spoke during the panel. Florence Pugh (Don't Worry Darling) was also invited to speak before the panel.
There was no announcement on when Thunderbolts would begin filming, but it will most likely be sometime later this summer.
What is the Release Date for Thunderbolts?
On July 26th, 2024, Marvel's Thunderbolts will be in cinemas.
What Are Thunderbolts' Comic Book Origins?
The Thunderbolts are quite straightforward to splice together with the Suicide Squad, given that both teams are made of individuals who would not be the ideal choice for a super team. However, there's a key difference between the teams in terms of their motivation for doing the dirty work of the US government.
Baron Helmut Zemo, a bureaucratic Captain America foe, founded the very on-the-nose group of super villains, the Masters of Evil, who were practically out of work when almost all of Earth's heroes were wiped out by the onslaught. They also took on new alter egos, becoming Citizen V, Atlas, Techno, MACH-1, and Meteorite.
At one point, the other Thunderbolts players managed to overthrow Zemo, demonstrating that they truly wanted to repay their debt to society. Some notable members include Deadpool, Abomination, Whiplash, Norman Osborne, and others, as well as most of the actors who have been announced for the feature film. Even Hawkeye, America Chavez, and Spectrum have been a part of the group since, often returning to his original form.
Who is Making Thunderbolts?
Jake Schrier will direct the Thunderbolts film, which was critically acclaimed in 2012, and then had a great success three years later with the adaptation of Paper Towns (2015). Despite having two moderately successful films under his belt, Schrier has mostly focused on music videos and specials, including Chance the Rapper's Magnificent Coloring World and the occasional television episode.
Kevin Feige is expected to direct, while Thor: Ragnarok (2017) and Black Widow writer Eric Pearson will direct the film.
Who is Starring in Thunderbolts?
The cast of characters for Thunderbolts will include Florence Pugh, David Harbour, and Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), The Falcon and the Winter Soldier's Sebastian Stan and Wyatt Russell, Julia Louis-Dreyfus who played both, and Ant-Man and the Wasp's (2018) Hannah John-Kamen.
Where is Daniel Bruhl's Baron Zemo?
Daniel Bruhl was absent from the D23 preview, which is frankly shocking considering how vital the character is to the Thunderbolts of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Zemo seemed to be continuing to have a strong affinity for superhumans after being further fleshed out in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but he would rather be portraying the villain of the group rather than a team member. This would make perfect sense given Zemo's particularly righteous hatred of superheroes.
