Marvel Studios continues to bring the thunder as the MCU moves closer to its Phase 5 slate, which is currently set to end with the Thunderbolts team-up movie in July 2024. Taking a big group of Marvel’s darker antiheroes and villains to throw them together into a major crossover event will be a new step forward for the MCU, with potential team members scattered all over.
With nearly two years until Thunderbolts releases in theaters, the story is still early in development under Black Widow writer Eric Pearson and director Jake Schreier. And with this new outing set to be the first crossover event that focuses on Marvel’s bad guys, fan discussion is already running rampant on who could make up the roster and bring a unique dynamic to the MCU’s take on the team.
Jameela Jamil Teases Deadpool and Thunderbolts
Speaking with ComicBook, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law star Jameela Jamil touched on a potential team-up for the MCU’s upcoming Thunderbolts movie, which releases on July 26, 2024.
When asked which character she thinks Titania would like to annoy, Jamil specifically expressed her love for Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool, saying that she wants “to drive Deadpool crazy” at some point during her Marvel tenure.
Titania found herself in close proximity to the Thunderbolts on one big occasion in the comics from “Thunderbolts Vol. 1 144,” in which Steve Rogers gets Luke Cage to assemble a new version of the Thunderbolts before other deadlier teams can form. Titania doesn’t play a huge role in this story, but that isn’t stopping Jameela Jamil from imagining an MCU version where she’s a more prominent figure with the team.
As for her mention of Deadpool, he’s quickly becoming one of the MCU’s hot topics thanks to his transition from 20th Century Fox’s movies, and it appears that his opportunities for inclusion in the MCU are endless.
Thunderbolts will release in theaters on July 26, 2024. Jameela Jamil will kick off her run in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law on Thursday, August 18, while Ryan Reynolds is in the early stages of training for his upcoming role in Marvel Studios’ Deadpool 3.
