IGN published this video item, entitled “What Marvel’s Thunderbolts Can Learn From Suicide Squad” – below is their description.
The big reveal that the Thunderbolts are actually evil at the end of the 1997 comic Thunderbolts #1 is held as one of the best Marvel twists of all time. And now Phase 5 of the MCU will be rounded off by this rag-tag ensemble of villains in director Jake Schreier’s Marvel’s Thunderbolts movie.
Marvel chief Kevin Feige has already teased that Thunderbolts will bring together an eclectic mix of familiar faces alongside new characters. And while it remains to be seen who will actually fill the roster of anti-heroes and villains, one can imagine the likes of Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), US Agent (Wyatt Russell), Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl), and Abomination (Tim Roth) joining forces, among others.
As with the Thunderbolts of Marvel’s comics, fans and critics alike are already calling comparisons between the team and DC’s Suicide Squad. The DC Extended Universe first brought the Suicide Squad to life in David Ayer’s 2016 movie of the same name, followed by James Gunn’s 2021 The Suicide Squad. The maligned cocktail of A-list stars and characters was far from perfect in those films, so here’s hoping Schreier can avoid the same mistakes with Thunderbolts – and maybe channel some of their successes as well. With that in mind, here’s what Thunderbolts can learn from the Suicide Squad movies.
