An A-list crew of familiar cast members for the upcoming Marvel film Thunderbolts was announced by Kevin Feige during the D23 Expo panel on Saturday.

According to Variety, the cast includes Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes aka the Winter Soldier, David Harbour as Red Guardian, Julia Louis-Dreyfus as La Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine, Wyatt Russell as John Walker aka US Agent, Olga Kurylenko as Taskmaster and Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost.

Julia's character had recruited US Agent in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and sent Yelena on a mission to kill Hawkeye in the post-credits scene of Black Widow.

At D23, the whole cast of Thunderbolts was on stage, except for Pugh. "It's good to be back as the most boring Avenger," Russell said on stage, while Stan joked "Listen, these are my kind of people." Feige revealed that the movie will start filming early next year.

As per Variety, this movie was officially announced in July during Marvel's Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con, along with its July 26, 2024 release date. Jake Schreier will direct, with Eric Pearson attached to write the screenplay.
