Earlier tonight, Thunderbolts star Florence Pugh announced that cameras are now officially rolling on the MCU supervillain (well, anti-hero) team-up movie by sharing a video from the set to her Instagram page.

The brief clip revealed Pugh's updated outfit, a first look at Yelena Belova taking aim on one of the monitors, and the movie's official logo on the back of a chair. One thing that seems to have escaped most people's attention, however, is the addition of an asterisk to the title.

Marvel Studios later shared the video (guess Pugh won't be in too much trouble after all), and sure enough, the movie is now officially known as Thunderbolts*.

We have no idea what this means, but as minor a change as it would appear to be, it is almost certainly significant.

“Hey guys, how are you doing? I know I’ve dropped off for a little bit, but that’s partially because I was whisked off to Atlanta to shoot a movie that I’m not really supposed to talk about,” Pugh told her followers in the video. “But I can show you things, sneakily, as long as you don’t tell anyone…I can show you a sneak peek of the set. They’re shooting. I’ll be quiet now.”

“Someone is going to come rugby tackle me,” the Dune: Part Two star joked after moving over to director Jake Schreier.

Though other characters might well be added, the Thunderbolts roster currently consists of Red Guardian (David Harbour), Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), John Walker/U.S. Agent (Wyatt Russell), and Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko).

Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julie Louis Dreyfus) will put the team together, and rumor has it that she may also be partially responsible for Sentry's creation.

As for Sentry, Lewis Pullman recently joined the cast as the powerful, unstable character, replacing The Walking Dead alum Steven Yeun in the role.

Harrison Ford will replace the late William Hurt as Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross, who may wind up transforming into the Red Hulk. Black Widow's Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz) and Bill Foster (Laurence Fishburne) from Ant-Man and the Wasp are also rumored to appear.

Thunderbolts* is currently set to be released in theaters on May 2, 2025.

TheRationalNerd - 3/27/2024, 11:15 PM
Director looked pissed. lol
Mrnorth1921 - 3/28/2024, 12:01 AM
@TheRationalNerd - I’d imagine he is stressed, this movie has been in development hell for four years. And I am sure that Disney approved of several videos. I doubt they would let her show anything important.
TheRationalNerd - 3/28/2024, 4:34 AM
@Mrnorth1921 - yeah, you're probably right.
ObserverIO - 3/28/2024, 8:43 AM
@Mrnorth1921 - They should really be releasing a Hearts of Thunder documentary in the style of Hearts of Darkness.

Looking forward to seeing all the things they are going to do and their interactions with each other.

I don’t get it
cadunovaes01 - 3/28/2024, 12:47 AM
When she enters the studio, theres a strange Cap America (?) poster on the door...
bkmeijer1 - 3/28/2024, 3:27 AM
@cadunovaes01 - maybe because it's a Marvel studio? I'm not reading too much into it
Sabre81 - 3/28/2024, 10:57 AM
@cadunovaes01 - Yeah, I've heard they put them all over. Apparently it's Cap telling employees not to take pictures with their phones on set or something like that. Just self made ones as a joke to employees about spoilers.
cadunovaes01 - 3/28/2024, 5:54 PM
@Sabre81 - Good point, I really didnt know that!
Sabre81 - 3/28/2024, 6:42 PM
@cadunovaes01 - I only found out yesterday myself lol Can't remember which site it was but it was a similar article about Florence Pugh's video except this one included a photo of an office on set with writers and such and the poster was a lot more visible so the article explained what it meant.

Florence Pugh is an amazing lady.
TheMetaMan - 3/28/2024, 6:02 AM
Why does she look like she’s had lip filler?
Tonic24k - 3/28/2024, 8:01 AM
@TheMetaMan - Maybe she did. Maybe she didn't... why does this even matter? It's pretty common regardless.
ObserverIO - 3/28/2024, 8:45 AM
@TheMetaMan - She is looking particularly luscious. But I think it's just make-up accentuating her naturally juicy features.
Apophis71 - 3/28/2024, 3:58 PM
@ObserverIO - There are a few moments with a side view of her lips and doesn't look like any filler in those so likely just pro lip liner useage if anything but an odd thing for anyone to ever get hung up on these days.
S8R8M - 3/28/2024, 6:07 AM
I want her to spend more time with Hailee Steinfeld. They can have a Lethal Weapon 3 scene. Talking about their scars 🤤
Deadinside - 3/28/2024, 3:30 PM
@S8R8M - I can appreciate that! I wouldn't mind seeing Florence & Hailee lying around comparing their gashes...!☮️😜
S8R8M - 3/28/2024, 4:10 PM
@Deadinside - hahaha
ZomZom - 3/28/2024, 6:11 AM
Florence is one of the best things in the MCU. She needs to be embraced, cherished and her character developed.If she isn't a key member of the reformed Avengers, someone has dropped a bollock.
Comicmoviejunki - 3/28/2024, 6:20 AM
@ZomZom - she also needs to be poked by my shlong
BrainySleep - 3/28/2024, 6:25 AM
Sure it's not just a typo?
TheVisionary25 - 3/28/2024, 7:51 AM
Maybe it’s just a typo?.

The only thing I can think if it’s not that is this a placeholder title and the movie might be called something else or have a subtitle.

Anyway we’ll see , looking forward to the film!!.
