Marvel Studios Reportedly Moving Forward With a THUNDERBOLTS Movie and Signs a Director

According to Deadline, Marvel Studios is moving forward with a THUNDERBOLTS movie as it has landed director Jake Schreier.

The Hollywood trade reports:

"Marvel Studios’ top-secret Thunderbolts movie looks to have gained momentum as Deadline has learned that Jake Schreier is set as director of the new Marvel tentpole. Black Widow scribe Eric Pearson is penning the script with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige producing.

"Not much is known about the plot of film other than it revolved around a group of supervillains (or at least characters who have played bad guys at one point in MCU) who go on missions for the government. Another element that remains vague is which character will be part of this team since the film it technically still is in development, though sources say Marvel has been in touch with certain individuals who already are part of the MCU to make sure to keep an opening in their schedules for next summer when it shoots.

That said, some of the characters that potentially could be starring or making some sort of appearance include Baron Zemo, Yelena Belova, Ghost, Taskmaster, The Abomination, US Agent and the Winter Soldier..."

With San Diego Comic-Con 2022 right around the corner at the end of July and Disney's D23 Expo in September, this is the start of a flood of new news.
