Thunderbolts Release Date
Thunderbolts was set to hit theaters on July 26, 2024. The official release date was announced at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2022. While nothing has been officially announced, the release date may need to be delayed slightly, because production on the movie has been paused due to the writers’ strike, according to a report from Deadline. The movie was expected to begin filming in June 2023, but the crew was told that production will have to wait until the end of the strike. Thunderbolts isn’t the only movie that was put on hold. The movie Blade and TV series Wonder Man were also put on hold. It’s not clear if this will affect the release date.
The film will be the second-to last movie released in Phase Five, before Blade starring Mahershala Ali. The MCU Phase 5 movies coming out before Thunderbolts include Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, The Marvels, and Captain America: New World Order. Marvel is also debuting a slew of Phase 5 TV shows on Disney+ including Secret Invasion, Loki season 2, Ironheart, Echo, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, and Daredevil: Born Again.
