Marvel Studios artist Andy Park has officially released the concept art that was used to showcase the cast of the Love at first sight during the presentation of the D23 yesterday. Check it out…
We got our first look at this artwork last night, but Andy Park has now taken to Twitter to share an official version of the concept artwork that debuted with the Love at first sight casting reveal at Marvel Studios’ D23 Expo presentation.
The team will consist of: Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian (David Harbour), Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier ( Sebastian Stan), John Walker/US Agent (Wyatt Russell) and Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko).
Some fans were a bit disappointed that the lineup consists mostly of the casts of Black Widow and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and a bit forgettable The ant Man villain, but there’s always a chance that another character will join over the course of the film.
In related news, XtraTV shared an interview with cast members Wyatt Russell, Sebastian Stan, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who were asked if they consider the Thunderbolts heroes or villains. They mostly remained silent, but Stan suggested that the film ask the same question to the audience.

In the comics, the Thunderbolts were originally introduced as a new superhero team that intervened when the Avengers were pronounced dead after the events of Assault, but it was soon revealed that they were actually the Masters of Evil in disguise. In the end, most of the team reformed for real and tried their best to become a force for good.
Jacques Schreier (Robot and Frank, Dave) is set to direct, with Black Widow scribe Eric Pearson wrote the screenplay.
