Marvel’s Thunderbolts is set to begin filming soon, with new casting and plot rumors prompting discussion about what may or may not make it into the film. After some reports to the contrary, actress Hannah John-Kamen assures fans that she’ll be returning as Ghost in the film.
When the Thunderbolts roster was first announced, many fans were quick to point out that the team was almost entirely comprised of Super Soldiers from Black Widow or Falcon and the Winter Soldier, with John-Kamen’s Ghost being the one exception. This led many fans to speculate that Ghost would eventually be cut from Thunderbolts in rewrites to better focus the film. However, John-Kamen confirmed in a recent interview that she will be returning for the film and is incredibly excited about the opportunity:
“Oh, I’m definitely in it. 1000%,” John-Kamen told Extra. “That’s all I can say. I am definitely in it and so excited to be part of Thunderbolts. My fellow cast members, when we got announced at [D23], I had to pinch myself. Let the fun play on!”
There have been rumors that Sentry, a Superman-esque character created from a Super Soldier experiment in the comics, will also be appearing in the film. Both Ayo Edebir and Steven Yeun have also joined the cast in unknown roles. With filming set to start in the next few months, it’s only a matter of time until fans discover what lies in store for this group of misfit villains.
