Thunderbolts movie delayed due to WGA Strike
Marvel’s Thunderbolts movie delayed according to multiple sources due to the WGA strike in the US!
Deadline broke the news that the production for Thunderbolts will be directly affected by the Writers Guild of America or WGA strike.
The film was supposed to start filming around three weeks time but plans have been changed so it begins after the strike has officially ended which they still don’t know when. Production was supposed to enter Atlanta. The film will be directed by Jake Schreier and stars Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Hannah John-Kamen as Ava Starr/Ghost, Wyatt Russell as John Walker/U.S. Agent, Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova/Black Widow, David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian, Olga Kurylenko as Antonia Dreykov/Taskmaster and Harrison Ford as Gen. Thaddeus E. “Thunderbolt” Ross. Additionally, Steven Yeun and Ayo Edebiri have been cast in undisclosed roles.
Ofcourse this isn’t the first Marvel Studios project that has been affected. A week ago it was reported that the Blade reboot movie starring Mahershala Ali stopped pre-production. Another highly anticipated Marvel film that’s already in the initial level of production is Fantastic Four which has a January 2024 filming date which could be moved to a later date.
The Wonder Man series starring Yahya Abdul Mateen II has also shutdown production to give way to the WGA strike. Yes, that show has already begun shooting scenes and doing principal photography prior to the strike.
