Harrison Ford and big franchises seem like a perfect marriage, and Marvel has now recruited the actor to try to repeat this successful formula, and insert hero movies into its extensive curriculum.
The star of “Star Wars”, “Indiana Jones” and “Blade Runner” will join the MCU in the role of Thaddeus Ross, a character originally lived by William Hurt, who died in March of this year. The information was announced live on The Hot Mic With John Rocha and Jeff Sneider podcast, and confirmed this Friday (14) by Slash Film.
According to Jeff Sneider, Harrison Ford will make his MCU debut in “Captain America: New World Order,” which opens in May 2024.
However, Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross is expected to have a bigger impact on the movie “Thunderbolts”, Marvel’s reunion of villains and anti-heroes announced during San Diego Comic-Con 2022. In addition to Thaddeus Ross, other characters that should appearing in the film include Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), US Agent (Wyatt Russell), Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko) and Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), among others.
The character’s face swap for Harrison Ford, with the actor joining the MCU for the first time, is pretty significant. The actor, who has just finished filming the new sequel to “Indiana Jones“, must live a Thaddeus Ross occupying a role similar to that of Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) in the group of anti-heroes of rival DC, “The Squadron Suicide”. .
There are still no further details on exactly what role Harrison Ford’s character will play in Marvel’s macro vision, but certainly the addition of an actor of this caliber draws even more attention to the future of the MCU.
“Thunderbolts” is set to hit theaters on July 26, 2024.
