In an engaging session at New York's prestigious 92NY, the conversation between Wyatt Russell and his father, Kurt Russell, offered a rare glimpse into their dynamic on the set of the Apple TV+ series "Monarch: Legacy of Monsters." However, Wyatt's insights into his upcoming role in Marvel's "Thunderbolts" captivated the audience.

Speaking with moderator Josh Horowitz, Wyatt revealed that while the film's shooting has yet to kick off and he hasn't seen a complete script, his enthusiasm for the project is palpable. Wyatt's confidence in "Thunderbolts" shines through despite recent critical observations surrounding Marvel's current trajectory.

He lavished praise on the film's ensemble, which includes director Jake Schreier, Florence Pugh, Sebastian Stan, and David Harbour. Wyatt's admiration for Schreier's intellect and commitment is particularly noteworthy, as he anticipates a film that will innovate within the Marvel framework.

"Jake's vision for something distinctive, something that leverages each actor's unique abilities to their fullest, is truly inspiring," Wyatt remarked.

Addressing the storyline, Wyatt provided tantalizing hints about a plot that deviates from Marvel's traditional narrative arcs.

"The storyline, from what I understand, offers a fresh perspective. It's not your usual Marvel fare. This blend of innovation and entertainment, I believe, will not only captivate but also pleasantly surprise our loyal Marvel audience," he noted.

Wyatt emphasized the dedication behind "Thunderbolts," underscoring the team's determination to exceed the high standards of Marvel productions. "This isn't just about making another Marvel movie; it's about setting a new benchmark.

We're committed to delivering a film that resonates with fans for its distinct character and exceptional quality," he asserted. As anticipation builds, "Thunderbolts" is poised to add significantly to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Wyatt Russell's comments have set the stage for a movie that promises to be more than just another superhero film, but a refreshing, innovative experience in a beloved universe.
