Thunderbolts Marvel Movie Trailer
The Thunderbolts MCU movie will likely be quite different to its Marvel Comics counterpart, which is par for the course for Marvel's live-action movies and TV shows. Still, quite a bit has already been secretly assembled in the MCU for a Thunderbolts movie, and many of its main players are confirmed.
In the comics, the Thunderbolts are a group of reformed villains. The original team was started by Baron Zemo after the Avengers were killed, but, unknown to the rest of the world, the new Thunderbolts team was actually Zemo's Masters of Evil in disguise. As time goes on, however, the Thunderbolts actually start to enjoy being seen as heroes and doing good, and end up overthrowing Zemo as their leader. In the comics, as with all comic book super-teams, the Thunderbolts' lineup and leadership have changed significantly over the years, with various members leaving and joining the team. One factor has always remained consistent, however: the Thunderbolts are far more morally gray than the Avengers.
