David Harbour Says Thunderbolts Will Be a Different Marvel Movie

Marvel is preparing to begin production on its antihero team-up movie, Thunderbolts. One of the members joining the squad is Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian, played by David Harbour. The Stranger Things actor reprises his role, having made his MCU debut in Black Widow. With filming expected to begin in June, Harbour explained how Thunderbolts is a “different” Marvel movie, unlike anything we’ve seen.

“It’s really good. Marvel’s changing it up,” Harbour said to ET. “They’re always surprising, but this particular team knows what they’re doing. What this means in the universe is its own thing, but the team itself and the way they come together, it’s very different from any other Marvel movie I’ve seen.”

Alongside Harbour, the Thunderbolts will consist of Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes, Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost, Wyatt Russell as John Walker/U.S. Agent, Olga Kurylenko as Taskmaster, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine.

Thunderbolts is directed by Jake Schreier on a script written by Lee Sung Jin, with the latter taking over for the previous scribe Eric Pearson.

Thunderbolts will premiere on July 26, 2024.
