In case you missed it, Marvel Studios is finally putting the finishing touches on a film starring the Thunderbolts, an elite gang of criminals. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Black Widow teased the establishment of the squad, and Valentina Allegra de Fontaine has already recruited John Walker and Yelena Belova to the team.
Now, a fresh leak may have just revealed the identities of the supervillain group’s other main members, one of whom comes as a complete shock. The Jake Schreier-directed film will feature characters such as Baron Zemo, Ghost, Taskmaster, The Abomination, and, astonishingly, The Abomination.
Bucky has already been portrayed as a villain in the MCU, but the character’s whole path in the multibillion-dollar business has been predicated on redemption and atonement for his past sins. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier provided vindication to the former Hydra assassin, and he is finally free of his past nightmares.
At this time, we don’t see Bucky returning to the world of villainy, but Marvel Studios has a history of surprising audiences.
Thunderbolts‘ release date has yet to be determined by Marvel Studios. In the meanwhile, you may watch all of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s episodes on Disney+.
