According to recent news that is circulating in the towns of Hollywood that the actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus might be replacing Nick Fury played by the actor Samuel L. Jackson and fans with this news are getting very excited and filled with enthusiasm to see what the actress will offer to them in terms of her acting.
There is no doubt that the actress has now won 11 Emmys, which proves that Marvel has done something right in casting Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Let us look at this article to find out what Marvel is planning for the actress in the future.
Will Contessa Valentina de Fontaine replace Nick Fury in the future MCU?
According to official sources, Contessa Valentina de Fontaine played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus might replace Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury in the future MCU. Nick Fury was one of the earliest characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that first appeared in Iron Man, but now it seems like Jackson’s role might be replaced by Julia’s character.
The character Contessa Valentina de Fontaine first appeared in “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” show where we can see Julia’s character coming up to Wyatt Rusell’s U.S. Agent after his brutal international incident. The actress teamed up with Bucky Barnes to explore and know the history of Captain America. The show included a surprise debut of Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Contessa Valentina de Fontaine. And this does not end yet, Julia also returned as Valentina in the Black Widow film which therefore led many fans to question whether Marvel is considering casting her in the MCU’s future projects.
Apart from that, there have been greater speculations and rumors that Julia might be cast in the Thunderbolts film where her character would be portrayed forming the Dark Avengers thereby positioning her character as similar to Nick Fury.
And as said by the producer Nate Moore of “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier: The Art of the Series” show, Julia Louis-Dreyfus is the perfect replacement for Nick Furry, the producer with this also confirmed that Valentina might be “a new leader… in the Marvel Cinematic Universe:”
What would be Contessa Valentina’s role in the upcoming Thunderbolts after replacing Nick Fury?
According to official sources and as stated earlier, Contessa Valentina de Fontaine as played by Julia Louis- Dreyfus is following the footsteps of Nick Fury to assemble a team of morally clouded anti-heroes to do the jobs that the Avengers could not do, and with this, a recently announced The Thunderbolts project would be on her way to show that leadership of gathering the anti-heroes together as she would be having the role of being an associate thereby recruiting the powerful individuals and in this upcoming project, the super anti-heroes would be those powerful individuals whom Valentina would be recruiting and gathering, which would be covered in the upcoming film. Since nothing has been revealed yet regarding the Thunderbolt project, no details regarding this are available right now.
In this regard, we can say that since Julia has already made two appearances in Phase 4, one where she returned as Valentina in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier show and the other one where she returned in Black Widow, therefore it can be considered that Julia might be in Marvel’s other projects. With this, we can also say that Marvel is thinking of considering Valentina’s role very much big in the upcoming Thunderbolts. If in a way she is the replacement of Nick Fury then we can consider Valentina’s role in a more evil version just like how Nick Fury assembled and led the Avenger’s team. Valentina will likely be leading the anti-hero versions of the Avengers in the Thunderbolts.
Characters to expect in The Thunderbolts apart from Contessa Valentina de Fontaine?
Well, Marvel likes to keep it under the rocks, since nothing has been revealed regarding the upcoming movie. Still, we can guess some possibility of who can be there in the Upcoming Thunderbolt movie.
Baron Zemo who returned to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier might also be there in the movie as a potential leader for the crew. With this, we can also expect Yelena Boleva who recently appeared in Black Widow, and US Agent who appeared in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier show might also be there since both of them have been recruited by Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
Other MCU characters that might be part of Thunderbolts include Luke Cage, Hawkeye, Ghost, Taskmaster, Deadpool, Elektra, The Punisher, Ghost Rider, Winter Soldier, and America Chavez.
