The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s long-gestating Thunderbolts project is at last en route to turning into a reality. On Thursday, reports showed that Jake Schreier has been tapped to coordinate a forthcoming Thunderbolts film, with Black Widow’s Eric Pearson set to compose the content and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige set to produce. Reports are showing that the film could start production the following summer and that Marvel Studios has been “in contact with specific people” who are now a piece of the establishment to ensure their timetables are clear for the shoot.
Schreier is most popular for coordinating the 2012 non-mainstream dear Robot and Frank, as well as the 2015 transformation of John Green’s original Paper Towns. He has likewise helmed episodes of Beef and Dave, as well as music recordings for Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar. It had recently been supposed that a Thunderbolts film could be in progress to start creation at some point in 2023.
It is muddled right now who could make up the cast of Thunderbolts, a group that customarily comprises supervillains and wannabes going on missions, at first to persuade the overall population that they are working as legends. The main comic manifestation of the group was driven by Baron Zemo, with different individuals including Songbird, Moonstone, Taskmaster, U.S. Specialist, Crossbones, Abomination, Ghost, and then some. The group gets its namesake from General Thunderbolt Ross (William Hurt), yet following Hurt’s spending recently, it’s impossible to say with regards to how that part of the storyline could be taken care of.
The possibility of the Thunderbolts being shaped in the MCU has been springing up for quite a long while at this point, especially as more antiheroic characters have started to be laid out. The suspicions of that storyline could have previously been set up with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Black Widow, the two of which included scenes of Countess Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julie Louis-Dreyfuss) enrolling individuals for an obscure group she was shaping. Up to this point, Val got John Walker/U.S. Specialist (Wyatt Russell) and Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) to work for her, with the last option’s experiences working out in the new Hawkeye Disney+ series.
“That would be fun!” Ghost actress Hannah John-Kamen explained in a 2018 interview. “That would be fun. I think, you know, as well, in the original comics Ghost was with Iron Man, it was actually originally Iron Man (villain), you know, and I actually went when I was in Atlanta, went and actually bought the Thunderbolts comic books. With any Marvel character whatever happens to them, you always go the possibility is endless. And with me, it would be an honor to work with any of the heroes, any of the antagonists, and any of the things in the Marvel Universe. I mean, yeah, that would be amazing!?”
