Marvel’s ‘Thunderbolts’ Movie Enlists Director Jake Schreier

Marvel Studios’ villains are getting a jolt, with the super villain team the Thunderbolts getting their own film.

Filmmaker Jake Schreier, who has directed films such as Robot & Frank and

episodes of TV series such as Jim Carrey’s Kidding, Dave and Minx, has landed the job to direct

Marvel veteran Eric Pearson is penning the script,

after working with the studio on Black Widow and Thor: Ragnarok. Deadline first reported the news.

In the comics, the Thunderbolts are a team of supervillains who debuted in The Incredible Hulk No.

449, and created by artist Mark Bagley and writer Kurt Busiek. They are akin to DC’s Suicide

Squad as that in some versions the team works under government supervision.

Speculation that Marvel could set up the Thunderbolts dates back to 2019
