One of Marvel's upcoming top teams, the Thunderbolts, is starting to take shape. During Marvel's D23 Expo appearance on Saturday, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed an A-list ensemble of well-known actors for the next team-up movie. The cast also includes Olga Kurylenko as Taskmaster, Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost, Julia Louis-Dreyfus as La Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine, Wyatt Russell as John Walker aka US Agent, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes aka the Winter Soldier, David Harbour as Red Guardian, and Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova.

After The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Louis-Dreyfus' cunning antagonist with an absurdly long name recruited a US Agent, and in the Black Widow post-credits sequence, she assigned Yelena to assassinate Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye. In 2021's Black Widow, Pugh's Yelena and Kurylenko's Taskmaster were also introduced, along with Harbour's Red Guardian and Harbour's Red Guardian. Stan's Bucky was last seen in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, while John-Ghost Kamen made his film debut in Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Except for Pugh, who has recently been filming Dune: Part 1, the whole ensemble was on stage at D23. According to Feige, filming will begin early next year, with Russell saying on stage that it's great to be back as the most boring Avenger, while Stan joked that these are his types of guys.

At Marvel's Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con in July, Thunderbolts' 2024 release date was formally revealed. The screenplay will be written by Eric Pearson, and Jake Schreier will direct. In addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Pearson has previously co-written the screenplay for Thor: Ragnorok and written Black Widow. Although Schreier is most known for directing the 2015 film Paper Towns, he also has a wealth of experience producing music videos for stars like Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, and Haim.

The release date for Thunderbolts is July 26, 2024.
