Thunderbolts: David Harbour Teases Red Guardian’s New Suit
David Harbor’s Red Guardian will soon return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Thunderbolts, an upcoming team-up flick that’ll put some of the MCU’s most recognizable villains and anti-heroes together in the same boat. According to Hold onto himself, he’s significantly more excited for the production of the flick after learning Red Guardian will get a new suit within the film.
“I was told I would get a new suit. And I don’t want to say the ‘F’ word, but I’m truly psyched about that,” the Stranger Things alumnus told Marvel.com. “You watch Captain America and you see him in these different movies, and you see him the white star and the black star [on his costume.] I just want a full closet’s worth of suits, and I’m well coming.”
Joining Red Guardian in the team includes Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko), Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), U.S. Agent (Wyatt Russell), and Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Valentina Allegra de Fontaine.
Harbor has always been his character’s biggest support, saying there’s plenty of stories to be told featuring the Russian equivalency of Captain America.
“They don’t let you say these things. I would adore for there to be more Red Guardian, and I would cherish for you all to adore for there to be more Red Guardian because that always helps the cause,” Harbor previously Variety about his MCU future. “I love the character, there’s so numerous things you could do with him. There’s this hole of 25 years where we don’t realize who was he, what is his version of events as opposed to the actual version of events?”
He added, “What happens to him after this film, and why isn’t he fighting Thanos? Where is he in that time, what happens then? And then post that, when [Natasha] dies, what happens then? It’s exceptionally interesting to me and I trust that there is interest on other levels, and perhaps we’ll see some more.”
Thunderbolts is set for release on July 26, 2024.
