Marvel Studios’ upcoming “Thunderbolts” film is set to release in theaters on July 26, 2024.
Plot details for the film are under wraps however it revolves around a group of villains who are sent on missions commissioned by the government.
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, Florence Pugh reprising her role as Yelena Belova and Olga Kurylenko as Taskmaster.
Ayo Edebiri (The Bear) and Steven Yeun (Minari) also recently joined the cast in undisclosed roles. Harrison Ford is also expected to reprise his role as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross from Captain America: New World Order.
Jake Schreier will direct and Beef creator Lee Sung Jin has been recently added as a writer and will take over writing duties for Eric Pearson (Black Widow, Thor: Ragnarok) who wrote the first script for the film. Lee and Schreier previously worked together on Beef which is now streaming on Netflix. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is producing.
The project is currently eyeing a June 2023 production date and according to The Cosmic Circus, “Thunderbolts” production company is Cantina Productions LLC. and using the working title Oops All Berries.
The outlet further points out thoughts that “cantina” is that iconic Star Wars location on Tatooine – the Mos Eisley Cantina. Obi-Wan (Alec Guinness) famously calls the spaceport a “wretched hive of scum and villainy.” Given that the Thunderbolts are, well, mostly villains, that could be the connection.
The film hits theaters on July 26, 2024.
