Director of Thunderbolts teases ‘very different’ MCU film

Spread MCU News

Director Jake Schreier of Thunderbolts says that the next Marvel Cinematic Universe movie would differ significantly from other superhero team-up movies in the MCU. In a recent interview, Schreier discussed Thunderbolts, one of the Phase Five MCU games, and what viewers might anticipate from it. Though he was unable to go into specifics, Schreier assured viewers that Thunderbolts’ focus on telling a unique tale sets it apart from other MCU projects. The majority of the interesting stuff I can’t talk about. I suppose what I would say is that, in my opinion, the tale is approaching the genre from a completely distinct position. It has a highly unique cast of individuals. There is a very clear understanding of what unites them. A genuine yearning to create something independent exists, he claimed.

Although a Marvel official acknowledged this past January that Thunderbolts is seen as a Black Widow sequel, Schreier emphasised how much the movie boasts its own personality as it follows the titular anti-hero gang. Moviegoers will like the film’s freshness, according to Schreier. It doesn’t feel like a sequel or a new version of something we’ve already seen, but rather like something entirely fresh in a great and well-known environment. That, in my opinion, was really thrilling. We’re quite enthusiastic about it,” he stated. Given that the Thunderbolts team is made up of former criminals and anti-heroes assembled by CIA director Contessa Valentina Allegra De La Fontaine, also known as “Val,” who is played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Thunderbolts stands out from other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. The supergroup, which includes Bucky Barnes, the Winter Soldier and de facto leader, David Harbour’s Red Guardian, and Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova, differs from most MCU groups in that it lacks political loyalty and acts selfishly in order to complete a given mission rather than saving the world.

Following Marvel President Kevin Feige’s official announcement of the film during San Diego Comic-Con in July of last year, Schreier was announced as Thunderbolts’ director in June. This summer was intended to mark the start of filming. But owing to the Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike this past May, Marvel stated that work will be stopped. Additionally, Marvel made a number of schedule modifications to the MCU film slate as a result of the strike and production delays, delaying Thunderbolts’ original July 26, 2024 release date. Steven Yeun, the star of Beef, will apparently play the Sentry in the forthcoming film Thunderbolts. Harrison Ford will make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Thunderbolts as Thaddeus E. “Thunderbolt” Ross, the new nominal president of the United States. Harrison Ford is looking forward to playing the part, while acknowledging how “tough” it is.
