Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the award-winning American actress known for her roles in popular television series like Seinfeld and Veep, is set to appear in two Marvel movies in 2024. Fans were thrilled when Louis-Dreyfus made her debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series in 2021 as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, a mysterious and powerful character.
Since then, Louis-Dreyfus has made small but impactful appearances in other MCU movies like Black Widow and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. While it was previously announced that she would play a significant role in the upcoming Thunderbolts film, it has now been revealed that Louis-Dreyfus will also be part of the cast of Captain America: New World Order, set to be released on May 3, 2024.
Louis-Dreyfus has been tight-lipped about her involvement in the MCU, hinting at the high level of secrecy surrounding her character’s involvement. In an interview with Variety, she mentioned how she had to wear a black cloak with a hood to remain incognito while filming Thunderbolts. She also hinted that her character, Val, was originally set to have a more substantial role in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but it seems that her character will be explored further in the future MCU movies.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has previously teased that Louis-Dreyfus’s character, Val, will be an “amazing addition” to the MCU, and that her future appearances could surprise fans. With her appearances in both Thunderbolts and Captain America: New World Order, it seems that Val’s role will be critical to the overarching story of the MCU.
Fans are speculating on how Val’s character will connect the two movies. Val’s role in Thunderbolts has been teased to be vital to the plot, as she creates a super-soldier that will turn out to be the extremely powerful Sentry. It is also expected that Captain America: New World Order will focus on the concept of super-soldiers, as seen in past Captain America movies.
Louis-Dreyfus’s character, Val, could prepare to create her version of the hero in the form of Sentry. The events in Captain America: New World Order could directly set up or impact what comes next in Thunderbolts, especially regarding Val’s character arc.
The release dates of the two movies are still a fair distance away, with Captain America: New World Order set to be released on May 3, 2024, while Thunderbolts is set to be released on July 26, 2024. It remains to be seen how the two movies will be interconnected, but one thing is for sure: Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s character, Val, will have a significant role to play in the future of the MCU.Follow us to get free & fast MCU Movies/Shows Leaks & News
