A number of Marvel Cinematic Universe projects slated for release in 2024 are already gearing up for production this year. Last week, we learned that the highly anticipated Thunderbolts will begin filming earlier than expected and while that's one bit of exciting news for fans, reports about the film's production start date were followed up by rumors that one cast member is getting removed from the project.

As per sources, Hannah John-Kamen, who made her MCU debut as Ava Starr aka Ghost in Ant-Man and the Wasp was reportedly dropped from the Phase Four film. It turns out that the actress wasn't listed on the project's official cast and breakdown.

Naturally, it came as a huge shock to fans, especially given how Ghost is the only member of the team that possesses unique abilities.

Well, it looks like there's zero truth to the rumors of her getting ousted from Thunderbolts. According to a new scoop from Twitter insider @CanWeGetToast, the same source that originally reported about Ghost's removal, the character will still be part of the film despite their previous report.

Thankfully, the rumor about Ghost potentially getting removed from the MCU's Thunderbolts roster isn't true but it's still quite intriguing why Ava Starr would align herself with Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, especially considering how she redeemed herself in Ant-Man and the Wasp.

The same thing can be said for everyone on the team and their motivations for becoming part of the villainous group remain unclear. Unless of course Marvel Studios plans to turn them into the franchise's newest superhero group.

Marvel Studios' Thunderbolts is slated for theatrical release on July 26, 2024.
