Are the anti-heroes of Thunderbolts destined to fail? Rumored plot details tease Marvel’s dark plans for the titular team.

Ever since Thunderbolts was announced, one question has been on the top of fans’ minds: why? This was followed in close second by those wondering what the film would be about. While Marvel has been playing close to the chest with this project, Hollywood insider DanielRPK recently revealed a synopsis for the film that promises a dark new direction.

According to the rumor, Thunderbolts will start with a team consisting of Yelena Belova, US Agent, Ghost, and Taskmaster. They will be sent by Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Val to take down a mystery target in a “vault.” Upon realizing they were sent to die, the team of villains teams up to take out Val.

Thunderbolts Is Marvel’s Suicide Squad

While still just a rumor, this synopsis all but confirms that Thunderbolts is just Marvel’s parallel to the Suicide Squad. The two teams certainly have their differences, but this current piece of the puzzle seems to be a mash-up of the two live-action DC films based on the team.

This rumor is further supported by recent set photos from Thunderbolts which seem to show a giant prison. This could potentially be the vault mentioned in the synopsis. As for who the team will be facing off with, all signs point to Marvel dusting off the Sentry to take on a villainous role against the team of super soldiers.

Thunderbolts is currently set to hit theaters on May 2, 2025. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
