Thunderbolts: Marvel Star Breaks Silence on Not Being Included in New MCU Movie

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been killing it with their Phase Four film slate with projects like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will wrap up Phase Four and Phase Five is looking like it’ll be equally good. One of the biggest projects from Phase Five will be Thunderbolts, and the film is set to feature a different lineup from the comics. Yelena Belova, Red Guardian, Winter Soldier, U.S. Agent, Taskmaster, Valentina Allegra de Fontaine and Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross. Fans were surprised that Baron Zemo wasn’t a part of the roster, and now the actor behind the role is speaking out on whether or not he’s going to be in the movie.

“Even if I could… I couldn’t, you know,” Bruhl revealed to RadioTimes. “The only thing I can say, everybody knows – is I’m not dead!”

Marvel Studios unveiled their plans for the next three years with two new Avengers movies being announced. Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars will both make their way into theaters in 2025. This may seem like it’s pretty far away, but Marvel is known for teasing their upcoming films with post-credit scenes. But, it seems like they might be doing it differently this time around. During a new interview with, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige reveals how the post-credits scenes could build towards the next two Avengers films.

“The truth is, all of the tags are never just about the future. There are tags that are eating shwarma, Captain America saying you know you gotta learn patience, sometimes, you know, you wait for something that’s not worth it. So they are always fun for us,” Feige told us. “We don’t want everything to feel the same. So some of the tags will connect and some of them won’t. Some of the films and shows will connect; some of them won’t. I think it’s just as important that we can have standalone introductory stories like Ms. Marvel, like Moon Knight, in addition to things that interconnect and build towards the larger story. A lot of what we’ve been doing has been building to this larger story, obviously with The Kang Dynasty and the Multiverse Saga, and now I think people will, I hope, come along for the ride. Both where it’s you’re on the express train to the finale, also when it’s fun, as many of our Phase 1, 2 and 3 films were.”

The most recent Marvel Studios film to hit theaters was Thor: Love and Thunder. The film is being directed by Taika Waititi and will star Chris Hemsworth as the titular character, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor, Russell Crowe as Zeus, Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star Lord, Sean Gunn as Kraglin, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Karen Gillan as Nebula and Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher. In addition to directing, Waititi will also be reprising his role as Korg. Thor: Love and Thunder is exclusively streaming on Disney+ now!
