A new report sheds light on the rumored villain fo Marvel's upcoming Thunderbolts movie
Accordsuing to a new rumor the Marvel is currently head hunting for an actor to play the main villain of the ucpming Thunderbolts who has been descibed as a "evil Superman" type.
While there are many rumors floating around about the plot of the upcoming Thunderbolts , many suggest the movie will focus on Wakanda and will be a heist to steal Vibranaium.
According to a report by ComicBookMovie.com Marvel is planning on introducing a powerfull new addition to its expanding roster. Marvel is apparently searching for an actor between the age of 30-50 to play "a conflicted and powerful villain" described as an "evil Superman" type.
And the studio is eyeing actors Ryan Gosling or Alexander Skarsgårdfor the role, while there are a lot of powerful and conflicted villains in Marvel comics the most likely option has to be Hyperion.
In the comics, Marcus Milton aka Hyperion and has a lot of similarities to Superman such as the last survivor of a dying world who is sent to Earth and raised by humans, however, unlike the man of steel, he tends to be violent and is more of an anti-hero.
And like Superman he possesses super strength and speed, the power of flight, is nearly indestructible, and has heat vision. His only weakness is radiated Argonite similar to Superman's Kryptonite.
Well if Hyperion is the main villain of Thunderbolts it is understandable that Valentina Allegra de Fontaine would assemble her own team of misfits to handle him.
The Thunderbolts cast includes Julia Louis-Dreyfus, David Harbour, Hannah John-Kamen, Florence Pugh, Sebastian Stan, Wyatt Russell, and Olga Kurylenko.
The movie is directed by Jake Schreier and will hit theaters on 26th July 2024.
