MCU fans rattle off their dream candidates for ‘Thunderbolts’

After years of rumor and speculation, it was finally announced that antihero ensemble epic

Thunderbolts was in active development at Marvel Studios,

with Jake Schreier directing from a screenplay penned by Black Widow writer Eric Pearson.

Not only that, but a raft of potential candidates for the titular team

were mentioned in the initial report. Presumably, Julia-Louis Dreyfus’

Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine will be the ringleader,

especially following the recent passing of longtime MCU stalwart William Hurt,

who debuted as Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross in The Incredible Hulk.
