The rumored members of the Thunderbolts are Daniel Bruhl as Helmut Zemo, Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, Wyatt Russell as John Walker/ U.S. Agent, Tim Roth as the Abomination, and Hannah John-Kamen as Ava Starr/ Ghost.

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.]

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 Wongfound him during the underground fight. Yet to be back on screen is Ghost but she may appear in Ant-Man and The Wasp 3: Quantumania.

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.
