Though the director of the movie Jake Schreier has cleared that the movie is not a sequel it is a bit contradictory to what the Marvel Studios Director of Visual Development, Andy Park has to say.

The actor who played Red Guardian, David Harbour, also agrees with the director’s comment about the uniqueness of the movie. He praised the script and Marvel’s innovative approach, mentioning that the film stands out due to its unique team dynamics and narrative style.

In other news, Thunderbolts is rumored to incorporate Adamantium as a plot element to potentially introduce the X-Men, although the official team of Marvel hasn’t confirmed this. There’s also speculation that Steve Yeun might portray the Sentry, but this remains unverified.

Production for Thunderbolts has been postponed due to the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike. Marvel intends to resume filming once the strike concludes, but the strike’s duration remains uncertain. The movie is scheduled to hit the theaters on December 20, 2024.
