Thunderbolts Officially Wraps, Julia Louis-Dreyfus Praises Role

Marvel Studios’ Thunderbolts* has officially wrapped filming, according to star Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

The actress confirmed on the Happy Sad Confused Podcast that the film had completed production last week. Louis-Dreyfus shared limited details due to MCU’s traditional non-disclosure agreements.

“When you work with these people, you have to sign a NDA every three-and-a-half seconds,” joked Louis-Dreyfus. She appreciated the production and highlighted the cast, including Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Lewis Pullman, Sebastian Stan, and Wyatt Russell.

Louis-Dreyfus was open to joining MCU from the start

Louis-Dreyfus mentioned meeting MCU head Kevin Feige and Louis D’Esposito, who admired her work in Seinfeld and Veep. They inquired if she was interested in joining Marvel, to which she responded affirmatively.

“I had a meeting with Kevin Feige and Louis D’Esposito, who run Marvel. They were big Seinfeld and Veep fans. I think they just wanted to talk about those shows,” said Louis-Dreyfus. “I went in and we were hanging around, talking about that episode and this episode. It just came up; they said, ‘Would you ever want to do something?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, it’d be so much fun, and my boys would freak out.’ That’s how it began.”

Regarding her role as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, Louis-Dreyfus appreciated the character’s enigmatic nature.

“I like who she is, as a character, which is mysterious. Is she good, is she bad? It’s a little bit unclear. I like the idea of her maybe being a little bit of a puppet master. I liked that they were kind of just dropping her into different projects a little bit here, a little bit there,” Louis-Dreyfus said.

Thunderbolts* is currently scheduled to premiere on May 2, 2025.
