The Direct describes the Songbird character as follows:
Going under the real name of Melissa Gold, Songbird endured a rough upbringing with an alcoholic father and a mother in jail, later receiving a special apparatus that made her very voice a powerful weapon. She can use impressive skills like echolocation and a hypnotizing song to locate and take out enemies, and the sheer force in her voice can incapacitate almost anybody, as she can create solid constructs purely out of sounds. The antihero/villain is also known for her distinctive hairstyle, sporting long white locks with red or pink streaks going through the length of her hair.
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.
Harrison Ford is also expected to reprise his role as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross from Captain America: New World Order.
Ryan Gosling or Alexander Skarsgård have been rumored to play a villain in the film however nothing has been confirmed.
Jake Schreier has been tapped as director, Eric Pearson (Black Widow) is penning the script with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige producing.
“Thunderbolts” hits theaters on July 26, 2024.
