The shooting of Marvel’s new villain movie Thunderbolts (2024) will start next summer. Actress and Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus confirms this in a recent interview with Variety.
In Thunderbolts, a special collective of Marvel villains is recruited by a special government organization to fulfill an adventurous mission. That premise quickly brings to mind the Suicide Squad (2016), and where that team of anti-heroes comes from DC’s comic history, the Marvel variant is, as always, based on its own comics.

One of the protagonists in the film will be Veep actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus. She plays – take a breath – Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, better known as Val, who recruits the villains for the government organization that will be central to Thunderbolts.
Val has made several appearances in the MCU in recent years. She was introduced in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (2021), in which she casts John Walker. In Black Widow (2021) she does the same with Yelena Belova/Black Widow. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022), still showing in some cinemas or coming soon to Disney+, finally reveals that Val is in fact the director of the CIA. So it’s to be expected that Thunderbolts will reveal more details about the (in the real world) well-known organization that powers the villains.
