Harrison Ford Rumored for Marvel Studios’ ‘Thunderbolts’ Film

A new rumor suggests that Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones, Star Wars) could join the MCU in Marvel Studios’ “Thunderbolts” film which will hit theaters on July 26, 2024.

The rumor comes from movie scooper Jeff Sneider, who says Ford “either is or was the studio’s top choice to star in Thunderbolts as the General himself.” You can see the social media post below:

According to the rumor, Ford would be recast to play Thunderbolt Ross who was previously portrayed by the late William Hurt.

Sneider went on to say that Marvel wanted to announce Ford as Ross with the rest of the Thunderbolts cast at the D23 Expo, however, Lucasfilm didn’t want to distract from Indiana Jones 5 along with Ford’s hesitation to replace his friend and colleague William Hurt.

As always, since nothing has been confirmed by Disney or Marvel, we will treat this as a rumor for now.

Cast previously announced for “Thunderbolts” includes David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian, ​​Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost, Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes, Wyatt Russell as John Walker/U.S.Agent, and Florence Pugh reprising her role as Yelena Belova.

Jake Schreier has been tapped as director, Eric Pearson (Black Widow) is penning the script with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige producing.

Filming will reportedly begin early next year.
