Plenty of rumors earlier than Marvel’s Comic-Con 2022 occasion advised that Kevin Feige would possibly convey the Thunderbolts to the MCU. And Feige delivered in July, revealing that the film will finish Phase 4. But we needed to look forward to D23 Expo to study the workforce’s preliminary roster. As anticipated, Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) is a member of the Thunderbolts, regardless that he’s now a acknowledged Avenger. Does that imply Sam Wilson’s (Anthony Mackie) Captain America is also on the Thunderbolts workforce?
The actor says he doesn’t know whether or not Marvel will name him up for the crossover. Not that we’d anticipate any MCU star to inform the entire fact. Some spoilers would possibly observe.
Why is the Winter Soldier in Thunderbolts?
Thunderbolts is Marvel’s equal of DC’s Suicide Squad. We’ll see varied misfits and antiheroes on the workforce along with the members above. We may additionally see Avengers working with the Thunderbolts if the necessity arises. And the brand new Captain America is actually the sort of distinguished Avengers determine who would possibly need to regulate the Thunderbolts.
Put otherwise, possibly Bucky Barnes has that function. To liaise between the Avengers and the Thunderbolts. After all, we do not know who shaped the Thunderbolts and why.

It provides me the chance to work with corporations like GAF and on initiatives like this, and folks take discover of it. You use that to point out the disparity in these communities and ask your self, ‘How can we help?’ That’s what’s so enjoyable in regards to the moniker of Captain America. It isn’t that precious if you happen to don’t do something with it.
That’s when the Thunderbolts query got here up. But Anthony Mackie stated he has no concept whether or not Marvel will name on Captain America:
I do not know. You know the way it works. They name you the week earlier than and are like, ‘We own your ass. Come get in the movie.’
