Thunderbolts will be based on the comic book series’ plot, with various alterations and adaptations to fit the MCU and the Scott Pilgrim universe. The film will begin following the events of Avengers: Endgame, in which half of the populace has returned after being snapped away by Thanos.
The world is in disarray, and the populace has lost trust in superheroes. To restore peace and stability, the government decides to form a new band of heroes known as the Thunderbolts.
The squad, however, is made up of criminals and anti-heroes who are covertly working for Baron Zemo, who has escaped from prison and aims to utilize the team for his own purposes. Ant-Man, Black Widow, Deadpool, Spider-Woman, Captain Marvel, She-Hulk, Moonstone, Speedball, Songbird, U.S. Agent, Atlas, Iron Patriot, Ghost, Fixer, and Mach-X are among the members of the squad.
General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross leads the crew as the Red Hulk, a huge and enraged version of the Hulk. The film will follow the band on their missions and adventures as they battle different perils and opponents, including the Masters of Evil, Skrulls, the Mandarin, and the Dark Avengers.
The film will also investigate the team’s interactions and conflicts as they grapple with their principles, loyalties, and identities. Some team members may begin to question Zemo’s motivations and techniques, and will attempt to redeem themselves and become true heroes.’
Others will remain faithful to Zemo, even if it means sabotaging and betraying their teammates. Other MCU and Scott Pilgrim characters who will appear in the film include Nick Fury, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Falcon, Winter Soldier, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain Marvel, Shang-Chi, Eternals, Blade, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Deadpool, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist,
The film will conclude with a final confrontation between the Thunderbolts and Zemo, who will reveal his actual intention to take over the globe using the Cosmic Cube, a powerful relic capable of altering reality.
The team will be split into two factions: those who favor Zemo and those who resist him. The war will be huge, violent, and full of twists and turns. A post-credits sequence will also tease the sequel, Thunderbolts: Dark Reign, which will follow the team’s involvement in the Secret Invasion narrative, in which the Skrulls have infiltrated and replaced many of Earth’s heroes and villains.
