Marvel’s Thunderbolts: Release date, Plot, Cast,Trailer and Everything We Know

Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, is one of the most mysterious people in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When she was first shown in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (2021) and then again at the end of Black Widow (2021), it was clear that she was trying to get some of the MCU’s more unsavory and morally complicated characters to join her. Why did she act this way? We’re still not sure what Fontaine’s plans are, but we do know that, besides the Avengers, she’s putting together a pretty exciting group of people. Thunderbolts (2024) is being billed as the end of Marvel’s Phase 5 of the Multiverse Saga. It will feature a group of villains, anti-heroes from previous movies, and Disney+ shows. The Thunderbolts have a long and complicated history in the comics, with members coming and going and different reasons for doing what they do. This means a live-action version of the superhero team could go in many directions.

After it was announced at San Diego Comic-Con, we finally got our first good look at the movie at the Marvel, Lucasfilm, and 20th Century Studio Showcase at this year’s D23 Expo. There, among other things, the entire roster and cast of the highly anticipated project were shown. Read on to learn everything about Marvel’s Thunderbolts and this strange team-up.

Thunderbolts Release Date

On July 26, 2024, Marvel’s Thunderbolts will fight their way into theaters. Thunderbolts will be one of the four MCU movies in 2024, along with Captain America: New World Order, Blade, and Deadpool 3.

Is There a Trailer for Thunderbolts?

Because the movie is so far down on Marvel’s schedule, it has yet to start filming. So, Kevin Feige, who is in charge of Marvel Studios, needed footage to show the D23 crowd. Did he have any promotional materials to show them? He did, with a cool piece of concept art from artist Andy Park that showed the whole team in all their glory with a bunch of lights or camera flashes shining on them.

From left to right, the team is made up of Valentina, Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), Red Guardian (David Harbour), Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), U.S. Agent (Wyatt Russell), and Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko). When Feige showed off the cast at the showcase, he also brought in stage director Jake Schrier (Robot & Frank) and actors Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Seinfeld), David Harbour (Stranger Things), Hannah John-Kamen (Ready Player One), Wyatt Russell (Overlord), and Sebastian Stan (Pam & Tommy). Florence Pugh (Don’t Worry, Darling), who couldn’t be there in person, also watched the event and sent a message to the fans.

Comic Book Origins of Thunderbolts?

It’s easy to compare the Thunderbolts to D.C.’s Suicide Squad, and it’s a fair comparison since both teams are made up of people who wouldn’t be the best choice for a super team. But there is a big difference between the teams regarding why they do the dirty work of the U.S. government. For the Suicide Squad, the bad guys are forced against their will because microscopic bombs are planted in their heads, and they are sent on missions where they have an incredibly low chance of surviving. The Thunderbolts are not like the others. Instead of being sent on suicide missions, the team’s main goal is to show the public that bad guys can change.

Baron Helmut Zemo, a bureaucratic enemy of Captain America, came up with this idea. The criminal mastermind also started the Masters of Evil, a group of supervillains with a self-explanatory name. They didn’t have much to do after the conqueror known as Onslaught killed almost all of Earth’s heroes. Zemo saw a new market niche for superhero teams as a great chance to manipulate the public and gain much more power worldwide. Zemo needed help to make his plan work, so he asked Goliath, Fixer, Screaming Mimi, Beattle, and Moonstone to join him. To make people believe this lie even more, the bad guys changed their names and became Citizen V, Atlas, Techno, Songbird, MACH-1, and Meteorite, in that order. Ultimately, Zemo’s grand plan to take over the world backfired when his team did the one thing he didn’t want them to do: reform.

The other Thunderbolts were able to get rid of Zemo in the end, showing that they had changed and wanted to pay back what they owed to society. Since then, many big names from the Marvel universe have joined the team at some point. Famous people on the team include Deadpool, Abomination, Whiplash, Venom, Norman Osborne, and many more. Most of the characters who have been announced for the movie have also been on the team. Even heroes with better appearances, like Hawkeye, America Chavez, and Spectrum, have been on the team at different times. Even Zemo has joined and left the group, sometimes changing for the better but usually returning to being a bad guy.
