The Thunderbolts Movie features Marvel’s (Sometimes) Evil Superman | Popgen Tech


Noted scooper Daniel Richtman has sparked speculation that Thunderbolts will feature Marvel’s Superman-like character Sentry as its main villain.

Thunders will feature the Sentry in a villainous role, if a new rumor is to be believed.

Twitter is abuzz with speculation that the Golden Guardian of Good will serve as the Thunderbolts’ nemesis based on comments made by respected scooper Daniel Richtman. Richtman previously said that Marvel Studios was planning to use an “evil Superman” character as the main antagonist in Thunders. The Sentry certainly fits the bill, as he possesses superpowers equal to the Man of Steel’s and is inextricably linked to a dark entity known as the Void. However, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe continue to debate whether Richtman was referring to the Sentry, or if he meant another Superman-like figure, Hyperion, instead. For its part, Marvel Studios has yet to publicly comment on Sentry’s supposed involvement in Thunderswhich means the rumor should be taken with a grain of salt for now.

If the Sentry does make his debut in the MCU Thunders, she may be the “bombshell” that star David Harbor mentioned in a recent interview. Harbour, reprising the Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian role he played Black Widow, insists that the upcoming blockbuster will have major knock-on effects for Marvel Studios’ wider shared universe. The star added, while he had not read the Thunders script, what has been revealed to him about the story so far has impressed him. “[The] “the arc of the movie and how it works…and it’s so cool,” Harbor said. “The idea is really cool.”

The Thunderbolts are the Losers of the MCU

Part of what Harbor finds appealing about the project seems to be how different it is from other MCU ensemble projects. According to Harbour, the Thunderbolts are not an elite fighting force like the premier MCU superhero team the Avengers, which gives the film both comedy and sadness. “We’re like, you know, the losers. And I think it’s fun to watch us just mess everything up. I think that’s the spectrum. I think it’s very funny, but there’s also a lot of pathos in that,” he said .

Harbor also promised the fans that Thunders will further develop the relationship between the Red Guardian and his adopted daughter, Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova. He added that he was looking forward to acting opposite Pugh again, and described Thunders director Jake Schreier’s plans for his character as “very interesting.”
