Harrison Ford is taking on the role of General Thaddeus ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross in 'Captain America: New World Order'
WEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA: Although Harrison Ford has been in the spotlight for decades, the Hollywood action icon doesn't seem to age a day. The 'Indiana Jones' star recently looked as dapper as ever as he stepped out in West Hollywood to relax amid news of his role in the highly anticipated 'Captain America: New World Order.'
For the outing on Thursday, November 03, the 80-year-old Hollywood icon wore a gray long-sleeved top and dark denim jeans for a simple but stylish look. The star's hair was styled to the side and he wore classic dark sunglasses. Ford completed his look with a pair of elegant black shoes.
The outing of Harrison, who rose to fame for his iconic role of Han Solo in the Star Wars films came after his casting in Marvel Cinematic Universe’s 'Captain America: New World Order' which is set to be released in 2024. Making his MCU debut, the star is going to play the role of Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross, which was previously portrayed by William Hurt. Hurt played the role of a villainous character in movies including 2008’s 'The Incredible Hulk,' 2016’s 'Captain America: Civil War,' 2018's 'Avengers: Infinity War,' 2019's 'Avengers: Endgame,' and 2021's 'Black Widow.'
Helmed by ace director Julius Onah, the new movie will be following the story of the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. A number of stars from the series are set to make their comeback with this new venture.
Talking about Ford’s MCU debut, 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' producer Nate Moore on Phase Zero podcast said that it is going to be exciting to see the Hollywood action icon exchanging hits with leading man Anthony Mackie. "Harrison Ford, we couldn’t be more excited," Moore said. "Obviously, when you have Han Solo or Indiana Jones involved in your movie, it just raises the game. So we’re excited to see [Anthony] Mackie and Harrison Ford in scenes together."
However, before the news of his casting broke out, Harrison in an exciting interview said MCU has killed the charm of Super Hero genre by releasing too many superhero movies. "I don't really want to give them what they wanna see, I want to give them something they didn't anticipate seeing." Harrison said during a discussion about the upcoming Indiana Jones movie, which is slated for release in 2023. "The Marvel movies are a spectacular example of a success that worked the other way round - they killed it."
