In a recent episode of the D23 Inside Disney podcast, Kevin Feige teased the actors future in the MCU.
She’s doing something. Yes she is,” Feige stated. “She seems to be in recruitment modes. Does Yelena already work for her? They seem to have a connection at that point, yes.
And the future is bright for the MCU because Julia is in it. We are gigantic fans of hers at Marvel,” Feige added. “We had a general meeting with her many years ago, Louis D’ Esposito and I really just geeked out that we were even meeting her because she’s such an icon, and we’re very big Seinfeld nerds at Marvel Studios.
So the notion of bringing her into the world was always something, if we could find the right thing, was something we wanted to do. And when this role came about and the opportunity to have her in Black Widow, and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and maybe in some other things coming up.
Most recently De Fontaine was seen in the post credit scene of Black Widow. This should have been our first meeting if the character, but due to the delays we were introduced to her first in Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
In Black Widow she is setting Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) on a path to kill the Avenger Hawkeye, aka, Clint Barton. In Falcon and the Winter Soldier she recruits the recently disgraced U.S Agent, John Walker.
Many fans think she is recruiting for the Thunderbolts, a team we have already discussed and would love to see in the MCU. More recent theories suggest we may see an MCU version of the Dark Avengers. Either way we certainly want to see more of Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ along with her new recruits.
Where do you think we will see Louis-Drefyus next? Do you think we will see the Thunderbolts, the Dark Avengers or another team being formed?
