Thunderbolts Release Date: When Will the Marvel Movie Come Out?
At the San Diego Comic-Con, Thunderbolts has been announced to form part and close out the MCU Phase Five as it is revealed to be set for premiere in theaters on July 26, 2024.
It will be the culmination of the movies in MCU's Phase Five with the arrival of the team built by Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine and she has already started with her recruitment given that everyone already saw her in Black Widow and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
Thunderbolts Cast: Who are the Actors Included in the Movie?
During Disney's D23 Expo, the cast confirmed to appear on the upcoming Thunderbolts movie, set to close out Phase 5 of the MCU attended the event,
It includes their very own version of Nick Fury with Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus who was seen in both The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and Black Widow, setting up the Thunderbolts.
Unfortunately, one of the stars that was first included in the roster of the Thunderbolts is reportedly dropped.
Hannah John-Kamen as Ava Starr/ Ghost, as per the report of Giant Freakin Robot, will not be a part of the upcoming movie anymore but there was no reason as to why she was dropped.
Another possible addition could be an upcoming She-Hulk: Attorney At Law character, Roger Gocking's Porcupine who appeared in Daughters of the Dragon #3 in 2006 where he was the babysitter of Spider-Woman Jessica Drew's son, Gerry Drew.
Gocking formed part of the Thunderbolts, too, and if we're lucky, we'd see him in the upcoming movie as well.
Jameela Jamil who plays Titania on She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, said in an interview with ComicBook.com, "There's so much for the MCU. The Thunderbolts, there's so many places that Titania can exist in the MCU, because she's so messy and vile."
This seemingly hints that she sees Titania as part of the upcoming movie of the band of villains.
Given this set of characters, it can be inferred that the various Thunderbolts members are from different versions of the group in the comics.
[This article will be updated if there would be additional cast members.]
Thunderbolts Crew: Who are the Creative Minds Behind the Scenes?
From the comic book series of the same name, the Thunderbolts was created originally from the words of Kurt Busiek and illustrations of Mark Bagley in their first issue in 1997.
Thunderbolts will be directed by Jake Schreier known for his movie Paper Towns. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures will be distributing the 2024 movie of the supervillains and it will be produced by Kevin Feige.
Supposedly, the scribe of the movie will be Eric Pearson who wrote Black Widow, but as per a report from Variety, Lee Sung Jin, the creator of the upcoming Netflix series Beef, has been tapped to pen the script for Thunderbolts. There is no filming date yet for Thunderbolts.
Thunderbolts Plot: What Will be the Plot of the Movie?
The Thunderbolts are expected to be a band of anti-heroes who will be gathering together for a mission making them good guys in the end. It's like the Avengers but their means are much more sinister.
In the comics, the Thunderbolts are led by a patriotic anonymous person, Citizen V, after the problem with Onslaught. At such a time, there were no Avengers nor Fantastic Four since they were gone without a trace.
They made themselves worthy to be recognized as the successors of the Avengers but their secret remains as dark as their intentions -- they are villains coming together to replace the heroes.
In the comics, Citizen V turns out to be Baron Zemo, and his friends, the Masters of Evil members, are among the Thunderbolts.
Baron Zemo's real intentions is that the Thunderbolts would have to gain the trust of the public then learn more about the superheroes, information they could sell to the criminals.
Later on, the villains just decided that it feels better being superheroes and they were loving the idea.
In various iterations of the group, the usual members are Luke Cage, General Thunderbolt Ross a.k.a. Red Hulk, Elektra, Punisher, and Venom. The Winter Soldier and Wilson Fisk also had his their very own, separate version of the Thunderbolts.
So far, in the MCU, Baron Zemo remains in the narrative and was last seen in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
In the same series, Contessa Val recruited John Walker who gave him the moniker of being the U.S. Agent.
In Black Widow, Contessa Val personally visited Yelena Belova while she was mourning over her sister's death and Contessa pointed to Hawkeye being the reason for Natasha's death.
Shang-Chi and The Legends of the Ten Rings gave a glimpse of Tim Roth's Abomination where Benedict Wong found him during the underground fight.
Abomination is not out in the cold yet with his arrival in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law where he has a refuge for small time and D-list heroes.
Yet to be back on screen is Ghost.
Other possible members of the team, though it may be far-fetched, are Bucky Barnes a.k.a. The Winter Soldier which is unlikely since his arc is leaning onto fully being a hero.
Alexei a.k.a. the Red Guardian who is the fake father of Natasha and Yelena; and the other one is the Taskmaster who has a surprise ending in Black Widow, could also be part of the team.
Where to Watch Thunderbolts?
Thunderbolts is set to release in theaters in 2024 and it is expected that the movie will be out on Disney Plus the same way as other MCU movies did in the past after 45 days from the first day it drops on theaters.
Is There a Trailer for Thunderbolts?
Unfortunately, there is no trailer yet for Marvel's Thunderbolts. There is still a long way to go if one would wait for a trailer since the production has not even started yet.
A team of supervillains saving the day? It may sound quite ironic but that is what the Thunderbolts are all about. It is said that the team would forever change the course of the MCU. How? It's for everyone to find out on July 26, 2024!
