The film was announced on Saturday at D23 and Stranger Things' David Harbour was also confirmed, reprising his own Black Widow role as Alexei aka Red Guardian, and AntMan's Hannah John-Kamen.

Thunderbolts had previously been teased during the mid-credits scenes for Disney+'s Black Widow and Falcon, when Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (played by Julia Louis Dreyfuss) was first seen telling Yelena that her sister Natasha Romanoff’s “killer” was Clint Barton, and later appearing on the hunt for John.

"My beautiful mama changing the world. Yes she’s an iconic actor but the work she’s done for the last 20 years to shine a light on what’s happening to these kids who feel like there’s no way out is her true legacy. Love you Ma! @mindup @goldiehawn," he shared alongside a video of Goldie speaking on behalf of her non-profit, MindUp, which focuses on providing mental health help for children.

Goldie responded and commented: "Oh my son. I love you so much! What a gift you are."
