Back in November, MCU Cosmic broke the news that early development on the Thunderbolts had begun at Marvel Studios, and now we might know when we’ll see them make their debut.
According to Daniel Richtman via his Patreon, the team will be introduced in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier when it debuts on Disney+ later this year.
The MCU has been gradually building to Thunderbolt Ross’s team of super-powered misfits, and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier brings back Baron Zemo; one of the leaders of the team from the comics. May’s Black Widow also features Taskmaster, which could also tie into the MCU’s version of Thunderbolts.
With WandaVision starting to set up Young Avengers and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier setting up Thunderbolts, the Disney+ shows truly are just as integral to the MCU as Kevin Feige has said.
