Harrison Ford Joins ‘Thunderbolts’ and ‘Captain America: New World Order’

Big plans are underway for Harrison Ford in the MCU who is set to appear in at least two movies.

Harrison Ford Joins Thunderbolts and Captain America: New World Order

It’s now said that Harrison Ford has joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will star in Thunderbolts as well as in Captain America: New World Order.

Confirming the earlier rumor, Slash Film says that Harrison Ford will indeed play Thaddeus Ross, the role previously played by the late William Hurt, also said to be a friend of Ford.

Interestingly enough, the confirmation follows the She-Hulk season finale where it is also rumored the original ending was supposed to tease Captain America: New World Order, and we all know Hurt and Ross got their start in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk.

It’s unknown why the She-Hulk Season finale was redone, but if I had to guess, it’s because of low viewership, so connecting to Captain America: New World Order wouldn’t have made much sense as a majority of MCU fans aren’t watching Disney Plus but only watch the films.

The original info came from Jeff Sneider who also says Harrison Ford will debut as Thaddaeus Ross, aka General Thunderbolt Ross, in Captain America: New World Order which gets released prior to Thunderbolts.

She-Hulk has also joked about Red Hulk, so we could very well see Harrison Ford hulk-out as the Red Hulk, who in the comics, has been a big part of the Thunderbolts at one time or another. Let’s just hope the CGI is better than She-Hulk, Smart Hulk, and Son of Hulk.
