what could the adaptation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe look like?

The announcement of the line-up that will compose the group Love at first sight has given rise to multiple interpretations. The first concerns the essence of the group and the freedom of interpretation that is allowed (or suggested) by the cooperation agreement Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although there is still plenty of time before the premiere, there are some issues that can be considered against the proposal.

Although the plot of Thunderbolts has not been revealed, the members who will compose it invite a notable difference between the story presented in the comics and that which will be seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Which ? The big-screen adaptation won’t be marked by characters who could be considered villains, without further nuance.

The characters who will star in Thunderbolts have a number of depth layers that place them in a more complex area to define. They’re not full-fledged villains, and they’re not superheroes either. Anti-heroes? Maybe. This is perhaps one of the essential points of the film’s narration. We see all of the above in detail.

The difference from the comics

The initial formation of the Thunderbolts in the comics, is made up of:

  • Atlas (Goliath)
  • MACH-I (Abner Jenkins)
  • Citizen V (Helmut Zemo)
  • Meteorite (moonstone)
  • Songbird (Howling Mimi)
  • Techno (Repairer)

Within this group, the central character is Helmut Zemo, also known as Baron Zemo. It is he who takes advantage of a situation to form the group. What was the context? The present narrative of the comics was devoid of the Avengers and the Fantastic Four, who had disappeared.

Baron Zemo therefore formed this group with the intention of taking on missions, gaining the trust of organizations, influencing them, in order to have more information and power. His goal, in fact, was to use this information for his own criminal benefit. Thunderbolts are a trap band in that sense, with an interesting duality from a philosophical standpoint.

One of the main differences with what was announced for the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that Baron Zemo is not the one who will make up this group. Whoever is responsible for doing this, according to the information that can be drawn from the productions already presented, is Countess Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine played by Julia Louis Dreyfus.

A possible future: a group not as obscure as in the comics

Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine will lead a group composed, so far, of the following characters:

  • US agent played by Wyatt Russell
  • red guardian played by David Harbor
  • Elena Belova played by Florence Pugh
  • Tyrant recovery pair Olga Kurylenko
  • Phantom played by Hannah John-Kamen
  • winter soldier played by Sebastian Stan

Black Widow Black Widow Red Guardian

What do these characters have in common? They can’t be defined as superheroes, but neither are they considered official villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Another difference from the Thunderbolts origin story in the comics.

This difference suggests that the tone of Thunderbolts maybe it won’t be too dark and the strong point, or one of the relevant points, will be the relationship between the people involved. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier can serve as a reference. Sam Wilson, played by Anthony Mackie, and Bucky Barnes, played by Sebastian Stan, aren’t just best friends and are forced to talk to each other for a greater purpose.

It is not yet known who the villain could be or in what context he will be introduced. Thunderbolts.

The origin of the characters that will make up the Thunderbolts of the Marvel Cinematic Universe

A brief overview of the characters that will be present in Thunderbolts:

American Agent, played by Wyatt Russell

This character was introduced in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. He appeared as Captain America’s relief but the shield was too much. He ended up perverting during the trip, turning into a super-soldier who will try to redeem himself.

Red Ranger, played by David Harbor

The Soviet version of Captain America. Featured in Black Widow is another character with a series of undertones that make it hard to classify her as good or bad in the story.

Yelena Belova, played by Florence Pugh

This character was introduced by Black Widow. Her development makes her the natural successor to her sister Natasha Romanoff, played by Scarlett Johansson, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Taskmaster, played by Olga Kurylenko

Another character taken from Black Widow. The development of the film suggests that she is another one of those power-manipulated characters and that in her process of evolution she wants to do things differently.

Ghost, played by Hannah John-Kamen

Like Taskmaster, Ghost is another one of those characters who are part of a puppet scene that someone else is pulling the strings for. He was introduced in Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan

He is the best known, since his appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Long before this film, he had already appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe during the first film on Steve Rogers. He is the most visible face among the characters and, perhaps, the one who will eventually take on a leadership role.
