Marvel’s Thunderbolt Film In Development: Which Characters Will Return?

Finally, fans’ wish gets fulfilled as Marvel Studios’ “Thunderbolt” is finally in development.

 Jake Schrier director of Robot & Frank and Paper, towns will be directing the new MCU film. Black Widow & Thor Ragnarok’s  Eric Pearson is set to be the writer for the script.

Since Phase 4 of marvel commenced and it brought up some new characters like the U.S agent in The Falcon & The Winter Soldier & Yelena Belova in Black Widow fans speculated that there are chances for a thunderbolt movie to take place. Guess it wasn’t a lie and it’s finally happening!

About Thunderbolts

Just like how Detective Comics (DC) has a Suicide Squad in the same way fans are getting the MCU version of them. Thunderbolts are supervillains but they pose as superheroes, they are the exact opposites of the Avengers.

Who All Will Be A Part Of The Thunderbolt Team?

While some characters are already introduced in movies & shows of the MCU. There are high chances of marvel introducing at least one new character in the new thunderbolt movie. But now let’s just see, who really is a part of the Thunderbolts.

US agent

In Falcon & The Winter Soldier, we got to see Valentina de Fontaine recruiting Wyatt Russell (US Agent). This is where the fans hinted that it can either be a setup of the Thunderbolt also known as Dark Avengers.

Yelena Belova

In Black Widow’s post-credits scene we saw Valentina who comes with a picture of Hawkeye, saying that he is the one responsible for her sister’s death (Natasha). So it is possible that Valentina may assemble her as well in the thunderbolts in the future.

Baron Zemo

According to the comics, he is the original leader of the team. Also, he was a part of the Falcon & the Winter Soldier show where we got to see the new version of him.


Shangchi & The Legend Of The Ten Rings brought back the abomination, and next, we also get to see him in She-Hulk. So there are chances he will be one of the Thunderbolts.

Task Master

In Black widow, it was made clear that she is free from the red room. It would be interesting to see if she comes back for the film as she is also a member of the Thunderbolts.

Winter Soldier

It remains unclear whether Bucky will be a part of MCU’s version of thunderbolt or not. The winter soldier was also once the leader of the thunderbolt. So it would be interesting to see if he becomes a part of the team.


Last seen in Antman and the Wasp, we don’t really know if the MCU will continue her story by bringing her back in thunderbolts.


We got to see this character in Iron Man 2, as the Thunderbolts is taking place it would be great to see him return to the MCU.

Marvel never loses an opportunity to introduce new characters, so it would be fun to see who will be introduced next in Thunderbolt!
