I really want the Leader to come back and see the Red Hulk. We could have had a chance for Red Hulk in Civil War.

Zemo, Red Hulk, Ghost, Beetle & Batroc Imo. Zemo as he needs more to him and should evolve more into his comic character: Red Hulk as Ross should have an everlasting influence over the MCU and the transformation would be a good way of doing it: Ghost, Beetle & Batroc as they should get more exposure too

@riddlersriddle: judging from the amount of attention my morbius and thunderbolts polls have gotten gives me a pretty clear idea of the kind hype one would have if these movies ever get greenlit.

@ravenvice01: I doubt a Morbius film would be too popular tbh but I think a Thunderbolts film could be just what Marvel needs right now - A chance to prove the MCU doubters that they can be dark and violent too. Would love to see a Thunderbolts film tbh

@riddlersriddle: same here. The main threats could range from Arnim Zola coming back to Leader, Abomination or red hulk himself

@ravenvice01: Zola would be cool to see again and Leader would be a great villain for them to face

Songbird, the poisonned innocence element, along with her in-team nemesis, the manipulative Karla Sofen (as Moonstone) are indeed Thunderbolts essentials.

I would add to that MCU Zemo (as a leader), Ant-Man (in some giant-form identity, reflecting Atlas), and a Bullseye (as the psychopathic element). They would have been a fine addition to MCU's Civil War setting, acting as Superheroes' MPs. They could also work well in a Nemo scheme to pose as heroes.

Would like to see them formed against a group of uncompromised villains that form the Masters of Evil, which could play into a sequel or second iteration based upon the 2 rosters...

Thunderbolts-

Existing: General Ross/Red Hulk, Justin Hammer, Zemo, Ghost,

New Characters: Atlas, Fixer or Beetle, Songbird, Moonstone

Masters of Evil:

existing- Arnim Zola, Leader, Abomination,

new- Radioactive Man or Titanium Man, Yelena Belova, Swordsman, Scourge/Nuke, Batroc,

@nucleon: I totally agree with u. They would have been great in the civil war movie but since captain marvel was introduced yet they probably wouldn't have had moonstone. Zemo, red hulk, leader, trickshot, beetle, black ant, atlas and songbird could have made the roster.

@deacon218: I really like your ideas about the roster. Thunderbolts as a movie or as a series could surpass the moderate success of Suicide Squad.

@deacon218: nuke unfortunately died in season 2 of Jessica jones. Scourge could be played by D-Man. I would imply that Zola survived the winter soldier sequel and implanted himself into a MODOK module. If the MODOK and Leader were to team up, they could form the Intelligencia to combat the thunderbolts.

@ravenvice01: Thanks! Wanted to make a roster based upon Rosses ability to present a team that has redemptive characters. Justin Hammer makes easy sense as an elitist that Ross would be attracted to having on his squad for a tech facilitator, which could introduce Fixer. Ross would also be into Zemo as he nearly defeated the Avengers, which i suspect Ross would be very interested in. Atlas could be introduced as attempting to steal Bill Fosters Goliath tech and failing, hence why he gets brought in and also to give him the 16 foot mark that Foster talked about his height max. Ghost is just an easy one to include for whatever reason; and Songbird and Moonstone could be introd however really, maybe as a criminal thrill seeking couple or something...

And for the Masters of Evil, Leader could find Zola, and together start their team, first freeing Abomination; which could put them on Rosses map as threats, and a political reason to have his own team under his control.

@ravenvice01: No real loss there, (forgot most of what happened in JJ season 2 thankfully); just as long as Batroc gets to be on the squad lol, jk... Also like the idea of using the MODOK module if they wanted to use it as a staging point for him

@deacon218: Honestly they could have used MODOK in the Winter Soldier sequel as Zola's algorithm. Here's how I would have set it up. Operation Paperclip gave Zola the alias George Tarlatan so he could live a semi normal life while remaining under SHIELD observation or so everyone was led to believe. Zola designs an algorithm code named MODOK which will headline Project Insight. As for Zola, he would assume two different robotic forms: the towering giant robot with a photo camera for a head which would be used in combat situations and the MODOK form when Zola converses or escapes a conflict.

Iron Man 3 should have ditched Coldblood and put Firebrand in its place since most of them were terrorists in their own rights plus if they planned on having Ruffalo involved even in a small capacity, I would have expanded it and bring Red Hulk into the fold or even Leader.

Sorry for prattling on, I wanted also ask. Do you wanna follow each other?

@ravenvice01: Yeah sure. And I could see the MODOK thing working, except maybe make it the other way around, where his camera head form is for conversation/interrogation, and the MODOK form for battle, (since it means Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing) and since it would work great for retreat with that giant friggin rocket at it base lol...

@deacon218: very true. U make valid points. For all we know Zola is still alive since he is a digital ghost and he could have been downloaded somewhere. I'm happy that we are following each other
