Now, in a recent interview with The Playlist, Oscar winner Sam Rockwell was asked about his potential return in the upcoming Thunderbolts film. He revealed that he’s definitely open to reprising Justin Hammer, especially when the newly-announced anti-hero film sounds like a cool project to him.

“Yeah, definitely,” Rockwell said. “I would be into that. [Thunderbolts] sounds cool…[Hammer’s] fun, he’s a real Lex Luthor.”

During the Marvel Studios’ recent panel at D23, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige finally unveiled the cast for the upcoming Thunderbolts film, which will be a team consisting of mostly supervillains and antiheroes. It includes Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), Red Guardian (David Harbour), Ghost (Hannah Jon-Kamen), US Agent (Wyatt Russell), Taskmaster (Olga Kerleynko), Yelena Belova/Black Widow (Florence Pugh), and The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).

The film will be directed by Jake Schreier, whose history as a director isn’t extremely extensive, having only worked on 2012’s Robot & Frank, 2015’s Paper Towns, and 2021 filmed version of Chance the Rapper’s Magnificent Coloring World Tour.

The film is currently scheduled to arrive in theaters on July 26, 2024, as part of Phase 5.
