Marvel Studios has plenty of projects about to be released in the next few years, and it seems that MCU is changing its direction with the introduction of ‘Marvel Spotlight’ and the fact that more and more projects are rated R. The first project to get the R rating was ‘Deadpool 3,’ and yesterday, Yen Demange confirmed that the highly awaited ‘Blade’ will also be rated R.
Disney+ shows are also moving in a more mature direction, with ‘Echo’ being the first project to be rated TV-MA and the first project to feature a sort-of villain in the main role.
This clearly means that we can expect more mature content in the future as well, but according to CanWeGetSomeToast, a reputable source of scoops and leaks, ‘Thunderbolts’ won’t be one of them.
The movie was supposed to introduce a task force of anti-heroes and former criminals that will be part of a group of individuals similar to DC’s Suicide Squad, and this is why people mostly associate them with DC’s team. But if anything, the movie will feature themes of family and unity, and CWGST further explains that the premise and dynamics we will see will be more similar to the first ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ movie than DC’s ‘Suicide Squad.’
It’s good to get the rating cleared early on so the fans can adjust their expectations, and this is at least a partial confirmation that the project is still moving on. Just Recently, rumors have been spreading that the project has been canceled along with the aforementioned ‘Blade’ movie despite its importance to the future of the MCU.
The movie is slated to be released in theaters on December 20, 2024, if it isn’t postponed in the meantime. Sebastian Stan, Florence Pugh, Wyatt Russell, Olga Kurylenko, David Harbour, Hannah John-Kamen, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Harrison Ford, Ayo Edebiri, and Steven Yeun are among the cast members. Ayo Edebiri and Steven Yeun’s characters are yet to be confirmed.
