Reports Indicate Thunderbolts Will Introduce a Fresh Organization to the MCU

Scheduled for release in 2025, ‘Thunderbolts*’ is among several anticipated projects. While it may not garner as much attention as ‘The Fantastic Four’ reboot or ‘Captain America: Brave New World,’ recent rumors suggest it could kick off an exciting new franchise if true.

The film promises to introduce a team akin to DC’s Suicide Squad. Additionally, speculation hints at the introduction of a new organization led by Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s portrayal of Valentina Allegra de Fontaine.

As per insights from The Cosmic Circus and their insider channels, Valentina Allegra de Fontaine is becoming a familiar figure, having made appearances in ‘Black Widow,’ ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,’ and two episodes of ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.’ Given her penchant for shady dealings, it’s unsurprising to hear that OXE Group, with its shadowy reputation, follows suit.

In Marvel Comics lore, OXE Group, or O.X.E., emerges as the world’s largest holding company under Valentina’s leadership. She’s also affiliated with the Kratos Club, a consortium determined to advance their agenda at any cost. While the specifics of OXE/O.X.E. remain ambiguous, its association with the secretive Outer Circle suggests significant influence over global politics and governance.

In the comics, parallels exist with the Thunderbolts series, where characters like Bucky Barnes, Yelena Belova, and Alexei Shostakov are associated with O.X.E. Valentina’s dubious intentions and the specter of betrayal are recurrent themes. Bucky approaches Valentina to leverage O.X.E. for positive change.

While the comic storyline lays groundwork, the forthcoming film adaptation is poised to offer fresh interpretations and deviations for these characters and their alliances. Uncertainty looms regarding the involvement of Life-Model Decoys and whether OXE Group merely features or evolves into the movie’s central antagonist.
