While promoting a brand-new book, The Art of Black Widow, Marvel Studios’ Director of Visual Development Andy Park has actually exposed that Thunderbolts will be “like a Black Widow sequel.” The information is most likely not that unexpected, thinking about the brand-new MCU group will include numerous characters from Phase 4’s Black Widow, although Scarlett Johansson’s initial Black Widow is gone from the franchise. While lots of characters have apparently cheated death in the Marvel franchise, Natasha Romanoff seems among the irreversible departures, however she survives on with her sis Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), continuing her tradition.

Thunderbolts will see Yelena signed up with by Red Guardian (David Harbour) and Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko), along with the return of Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) in her biggest MCU function to date. To this end, the Thunderbolts will restore the primary gamers of 2021’s Black Widow and describe the remarks made by Marvel’sAndy Park In a post on Instagram to promote the book, Park composed:

“Here’s the back cover portion for the wraparound cover I got to illustrate for THE ART OF BLACK WIDOW! Get your copy today! Taskmaster, the Red Guardian, Yelena AND Valentina Allegra de Fontaine will be returning in the upcoming THUNDERBOLTS film. It’s like it’s a Black Widow sequel & these these movies are connected or something! 😉 It’s gonna get interesting”

Thunderbolts Will Bring Together a Whole New MCU Team


As Marvel’s response to The Suicide Squad, Thunderbolts will combine the previously mentioned Black Widow characters being signed up with by Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), and U.S. Agent (Wyatt Russell). Having apparently been hired by Louis-Dreyfus’ Val, the group will come together and most likely be answerable to either her or Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, who will be played by Harrison Ford in the MCU following the death ofWilliam Hurt In the last couple of days, Ayo Edebiri has actually been contributed to the cast in a concealed function, and there will likely be more casting news in the coming weeks ahead of shooting.

Very little is understood about the function of the group being created in the motion picture or how it will suit the overarching MCU story. Still, there are a lot of things to anticipate in the movie, and David Harbour has actually currently been sharing his enjoyment to go back to the franchise. He formerly stated:

“It’s truly cool. We present a thing that’s incredibly cool. It’s crucial. I’m psyched that Julia Louis Dreyfus’ character is going to be, in a larger method, checked out. One of the important things you’ll most likely understand is that me and Florence’s dynamic will remain in there and checked out in such a way that’s truly cool. But all these people, Sebastian’s character, Wyatt’s character, I simply enjoy this mercenary component in the MCU. MCU has actually constantly been sort of raised in a specific method. It’s not what you ‘d anticipate. It integrates a couple brand-new aspects, brand-new things that we have yet to see in deep space.”

Thunderbolts will strike movie theaters on July 26, 2024.
