Harrison Ford Explains Decision to Join the MCU

Harrison Ford explains his decision to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross.

Back in October, when rumors first began to circulate that legendary actor Harrison Ford had signed on to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it took many fans by surprise. Especially as Ford has starred in franchises such as Star Wars and Indiana Jones, the former of which he has long grown tired of. Many assumed the actor wouldn’t want to join yet another massive franchise, however, a new interview with Ford has revealed that he was looking to do something different – and the MCU is different for him.

“Hey, look, I’ve done a lot of things. I now want to do some of the things I haven’t done.”

Ford is stepping into the role of Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross in Captain America: New World Order replacing the late William Hurt. The role of Ross brings many possibilities including using motion capture to become the Red Hulk. When asked about his involvement in such things, Ford was mum, effectively “zipping” his lips. Production on New World Order is expected to begin next year, with the film currently set to hit theaters on May 3rd, 2024.
