Just as She-Hulk: Attorney At Law wrapped up with no Red Hulk in sight, an updated rumor suggests that one might not be too far off. According to the Hot Mic Podcast, living legend Harrison Ford has joined the cast of Captain America: New World Order.
The report indicates that Ford, who will star in the fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise in 2023, has joined the cast of Cap 4 as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, a role that had been filled by William Hurt since 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. Hurt passed away in March of 2022 after reprising the role once more in Black Widow.
Fans have been hoping to see the Red Hulk appear in the MCU for years, with rumors of his appearance in Captain America: Civil War and the upcoming Thunderbolts film among the most well-known. While Marvel won’t comment on casting, fans might not have too long to wait to find out as filming on Cap 4 is slated to begin early next year.
Much speculation about just how much longer the 80-year old Ford planned to remain active in film, but if this rumor pans out, it’s possible he might be looking at a recurring role in the MCU over the next several years.
