Fans hoping a wasted MCU villain gets a second chance in ‘Thunderbolts’

Marvel’s Thunderbolts is underway, with a director and writer now attached to the project.

The film is already being called the MCU’s version of Suicide Squad,

where a group of superpowered villains and antiheroes will come together,

though as of right now no stars have been cast.

Based on what many already know of the MCU, there are lots of rumors circulating as to who exactly fits the bill,

with characters such as Zemo (Daniel Brühl), Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh),

U.S. Agent (Wyatt Russell), and also Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko) in contention.

It may be that Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) is pulling the strings behind the scenes,

having done so in both The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and in the post-credits scene of Black Widow.
