Feature film that should bring together great characters from Marvel Studios Phase 4.
The schedule of future releases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe just gained a powerful addition. According to recent Deadline reports, the gears of the movie thunderbolts are already running.
Last Thursday (9), the North American vehicle confirmed the entry of Jake Schreier in the project as director of the feature starring “Marvel’s Suicide Squad”. The filmmaker responsible for some episodes of Cherry Vengeance and the feature Paper Towns will work based on a script by Eric Pearson, who wrote Black Widow.

The project produced by Kevin Feige, head of Marvel Studios, does not have many details revealed. It is only known that the feature should bring a group of villains and anti-heroes to carry out missions for the government.
Although the studio has not confirmed the cast and the film itself, sources from the portal indicate that the company is already in contact with some actors who belong to other MCU productions to reserve a period in the schedule of the next American summer, between December and March, when the project should be filmed.
It is thought that the plot will involve the following characters: Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl), Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Phantom (Hannah John-Kamen), Coach (Olga Kurylenko), Abominable (Tim Roth), American Agent ( Wyatt Russell) and Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Others can still join the team, like Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds), for example. To this equation we can add the participation of Countess Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), who in Phase 4 productions has appeared in a kind of recruitment of such characters.
General Ross should also appear, but if that happens, Marvel will have to cast a new actor to play him, as William Hurt, who played the character on the big screen, passed away in March of this year.

According to Deadline, Schreier impressed Marvel executives at a recent presentation. In addition to the aforementioned productions, the filmmaker also has a long experience with music videos, with credits in audiovisual recordings by Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar.
For now, there is no release date for Thunderbolts. Marvel is expected to announce more details on the film on September 10 during the studio’s panel at D23.
