After making his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Black WidowDavid Harbor is set to reprise his role as the Red Guardian in the future Thunderbolts movie and he couldn’t be more excited.
“I really like him” David Harbor said of his character to Total movie“and I love Florence [Pugh] like Yelena [also in Thunderbolts]. And then you throw in Wyatt [Russell, as U.S. Agent] from Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Sebastian [Stan, reprising Bucky Barnes]. You have all these great, colorful characters. I’m really excited for that movie.” With the MCU looking set to continue trucking for the foreseeable future, Harbor is eager to keep playing the Red Guardian for as long as they’ll let him. “I love the Red Guardian,said Harbour.I can’t wait to peel back the layers. The great thing about him is that he is not very well defined in the comics like some of the other Marvel superheroes. So we can play with him in a different way and be surprising and unexpected.“
