New set photos have come out for the upcoming “Black Widow” movie, and a well known character is making a return. He is none other than General “Thunderbolt” Ross, played by William Hurt.
General Ross, first appeared in the big screen in “Hulk” in 2003 where he was originally played by Sam Elliot. William Hurt’s rendition of General Ross came in the follow up of the “Hulk” movie called “The Incredible Hulk”. In the post credit scene, we saw that Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr, talked to Ross about forming a team.
Ross then took an 8-year hiatus from the big screen only to return in “Captain America: Civil War”. Following that, he made a brief appearances in both “Avengers: Infinity War”, and “Avengers: Endgame”. So we’re really looking forward to see him in “Black Widow”.
This is not very surprising, really, if you’ve been keeping along with Marvel movies, as the character has been appearing more and more in recent films.
Not only that, the role of the character has also been given more attention leading many to speculate of his role in future films. The most interesting of them will be a post credits scene in which Ross will invite Yelena Belova into the Thunderbolts (think Avengers but working for the government) which was long rumoured to be appearing into the big screen.

In the end, we can’t confirmed anything until we see the actual film, “Black Widow”, in theaters on 30th April 2020.
