Harrison Ford has reportedly joined the cast of the Thunderbolts as one hell of a replacement for the late William Hurt. If true, Ford will take over the role of General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, who not only formed an iteration of the quasi-titular team but later became the Red Hulk, which She-Hulk has been subtly priming people for. I highly doubt Marvel is going to get Ford into a motion-capture unitard if they follow through with that storyline, but if they do, my God. I want all of the behind-the-scenes footage. All of it.
