Speaking with Gizmodo as part of the publicity tour for his upcoming film Violent Night, David Harbour alluded to some details for Marvel Studio’s Thunderbolts film, where he reprises his Red Guardian role from Black Widow. While a script is not yet forthcoming, Harbour stated that he was given a sense of the arc of the film and liked the functional concept. Harbour’s Red Guardian will appear alongside Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier, Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova, and a number of other MCU antagonist characters.

The Thunderbolts have generally functioned similar to DC Comics’ Suicide Squad: a team of supervillains attempting to push the heroic angle with varying levels of sincerity. The film is slated for release in 2024 as the penultimate Phase 5 film of the MCU. According to Harbour, the project will introduce some significant beats for the MCU as a whole. “It’ll be funny, it’ll be weird, it’ll be action. And then we’re also going to drop a bomb, which is cool,’ he stated.

Marvel’s Thunderbolts arrives in theaters on July 26, 2024
