With Jake Schreier directing and Eric Pearson (Black Widow) writing.
We are not idle on the side of Marvel Studios. While a director’s quest for the next Fantastic Four is still ongoing, Deadline reports that the director of the Thunderbolts film has been found. It will be a certain Jake Schreier.
Marvel is looking for a director of the caliber of Sam Raimi for Fantastic Four
Known in the music video world (he has notably worked for Kanye West, Francis and The Lights and Chance the Rapper), Jake Schreier also has two feature films to his credit: Robot & Frankpresented at Sundance in 2012, and Paper Towns (2015), with Cara Delevingne. Despite this seemingly light CV, he would have impressed Marvel execs during his presentation, explains Deadline. It’s Eric Pearson, who once wrote on Thor: Ragnarok and Black Widowwhich will be in charge of the script.
Thunderbolts will introduce a whole new team of superheroes, or rather anti-heroes. In the comics, the Thunderbolts are a group of reformed villains sent on missions by the government. A description that is reminiscent of DC’s Suicide Squad.
The casting hasn’t been decided yet, but Marvel has started to sound out several actors, and we could potentially find in the film Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl), Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Ghost (a character seen in Ant Man and played by Hannah John-Kamen), Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko), Abomination, US Agent (Wyatt Russell, seen in the series Falcon and the Winter Soldier) or Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan).
Marvel Studios plans to shoot the movie Thunderbolts in the summer of 2023, so we shouldn’t see it in cinemas before 2024.
