The upcoming project is inspired by the comics of the same name where it will be seen revolving around a team. , villains and anti-heroes.
The exact plot details of the film are still shrouded in secrecy, but the fact that it ends Phase 5 suggests that it will have massive implications for the rest of the MCU.
As for the team’s lineup, it was previously reported that Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova would lead the Thunderbolts squad. In addition, John Walker and Abomination were also rumored to be a part of the ensemble.
Now, the first official look of the new MCU team has been released. During a Marvel Studios panel at this year’s D23 Expo, the first look at the MCU’s lineup of Thunderbolts was officially revealed.

The Red Guardian’s reaction to Steve Rogers’ best friend, Bucky Barnes, will be exciting, and this film may ultimately answer whether Black Widow’s “dad” actually met Captain America that day.

US Agent/John Walker also made her first appearance in that series, while Yelena was last seen in the Disney+ series Hawkeye. Both Red Guardian and Taskmaster have so far only appeared in Black Widow solo film, making Thunderbolt their first appearance.
The Thunderbolts have always shared a similar vibe to DC’s Suicide Squad, though fans shouldn’t expect these characters to take an R-rated take within the MCU. Still, the Thunderbolts are considered more edgy than the heroic Avengers teams, taking on missions that are a bit outside the realm of the standard superhero world. While General Ross isn’t shown (William Hurt, who portrayed him in the MCU, passed away earlier this year),
