According to an exclusive report by Deadline, a Thunderbolts feature film is in development at Marvel Studios, and Jake Schreier (Frank and the Robot) is set as director. The script, on the other hand, is under the responsibility of Eric Pearson (Black Widow).
Speculation has been circulating for some time, but at least for now, there are no additional details.
Anyway, even at a preliminary stage, Kevin Feige keeps in touch with certain individuals who are already part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to make sure they all book a space in their schedules.
Principal photography is expected to begin in the summer of next year, between April and August.
That said, some of the villains, or antiheroes, that could star in or make some sort of appearance include Baron Zemo (Daniel Bruhl), Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), Coach (Olga Kurylenko), Abominable (Tim Roth), US Agent (Wyatt Russell) and even Winter Soldier (sebastian stan).
In the comics, General “Thunderbolt” Ross is a frequent leader of the team, but we don’t know what the studio’s plans are due to his death. William Hurt.
Another interesting detail is that the presentation made by Schreier in the last few weeks surprised producers, guaranteeing him this work.
Some clues related to the project had already been left for some time, especially through the introduction of Countess Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus).
