Since the announcement of the MCU flick "Thunderbolts" there have been rumors about possible takeovers of the role of the super villain Thaddeus Ross. According to reports, Harrison Ford will embody the character in the future. He is thus following in the venerable footsteps of actor William Hurt, who died in March of this year. We take a look at the latest rumours, advance notices and the Thunderbolts squad.

Actor William Hurt, popular not only among Marvel fans, played the character of Thaddeus Ross, nicknamed Thunderbolt, in the popular MCU films Avengers: Endgame, Avengers: Infinity War, Black Widow, Captain America: Civil War” and “The Incredible Hulk”. Now, rumor has it that high-profile actor Harrison Ford is set to reprise his role in Marvel's Thunderbolts, becoming a new, familiar part of the super villain squad set to bring Marvel's Phase 5 to a close.

Will Harrison Ford become a super villain?

Marvel boss Kevin Feige confirmed additional actors for the MCU film at D23 2022. Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, David Harbors as Red Guardian, Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost, Wyatt Russell as US Agent, Olga Kurylenko as Taskmaster, Florence take on a super villain character in "Thunderbolts". Pugh as Black Widow, Yelena Belova and Sebastian Stan's Bucky as the Winter Soldier. It has not yet been announced whether Daniel Brühl will return to his role as Baron Zemo for the film. Most recently, fans saw him in the MCU hit The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The film should offer Zemo enough space for his path to redemption. Jake Schreier is expected to direct. The filmmaker is known for films such as Robot & Frank, Paper Towns and Traces of Margo. Black Widow author Eric Pearson is said to be responsible for the top-secret script.

The Thunderbolts are not a superhero group, rather they embody Marvel's super villains presenting themselves as heroes to the universe. In their comic history, the super villains were members of the Masters of Evil, who now want to show themselves in a new, innocent guise. The transition from evil to good is considered by fans to be one of the most significant in Marvel Comics history. So far, the squad has been drawn to government missions, mostly with selfish ulterior motives. But in the end, the Thunderbolts mostly live up to their external presentation and use their superpowers for good. The character of Thaddeus Ross is similar to the role of Amanda Waller in The Suicide Squad.

As announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Thunderbolts is set to hit theaters on July 26, 2024. Exact indications as to when the film is to be broadcast in Germany have not yet been given.
