D23 Expo 2022: Marvel Studios' 'Thunderbolts’ Casting Announced

Ready to dive further into the Multiverse? During Saturday’s Walt Disney Studios - Lucasfilm & Marvel Studios Presentation at D23 Expo 2022, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige took to the stage to share a bevy of brand new announcements as the MCU dives further into Phase 4, 5, and 6 — aka, The Multiverse Saga.

Cast members in attendance for the presentation include returning Marvel faces: David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian, ​​Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost, Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes, Wyatt Russell as John Walker/U.S.Agent, with Florence Pugh reprising her role as Yelena Belova and sending in a video message for the audience.

When talking about reprising her role as Val, Louis-Dreyfus joked that Feige had her hooked the second he said the word "Contessa." Say less! Harbor was excited to put on Red Guardian's suit again, too, and he's thrilled to be teaming back up with his on-screen daughter, his "beloved Yelena." 

Russell, meanwhile, joked that he's "the most boring Avenger" among the group. As for Bucky, Stan can't help but wonder aloud if The Winter Soldier might be the most "stable" of his new teammates. Only time will tell.
