Sam Rockwell wants to return to the MCU in the movie Thunderbolts

Sam Rockwell has expressed his wish to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sam Rockwell is best known for his works in movies like Vice, Jojo Lapin, and Luneet: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. And then, of course, there’s his Oscar-winning performance in Three Billboards outside of Ebbing, Missouri. But Marvel fans will remember him as Justin Hammer, the founder of Hammer Tech and Stark Industries’ business rival to Tony Stark.

In Iron Man 2, Justin Hammer teams up with Ivan Vanko to take down Stark Industries by making a working exoskeleton. Vanko later double-crosses him and unleashes rogue droids on the city. Hammer is later arrested for conspiring with Vanko. He was last seen serving time at Seagate Prison in Marvel’s One-Shot. Hail, you, King!

It is not known what became of Hammer after the shocking events of Infinity War et End of Game, but actor Sam Rockwell can’t wait to find out. In a recent interview with The speed, Rockwell revealed he wants to be in a new Love at first sight film.

Check out his statement:

Yeah absolutely. The Thunderbolt…I’ll be in it. Sounds cool. What bad guys would be in there? Yeah! yes, it’s fun… [Hammer]He’s a real Lex Luthor.

While comparing his Marvel persona to DC’s Lex Luthor, the actor raised discussion among fans regarding his possible retaliation. And given the recent developments in the old characters’ arcs in the MCU, Hammer’s return doesn’t seem like a stretch. Recently, Tim Roth appeared in She-Hulk : attorney at law as Emil Blonsky/Abomination, fourteen years after his last appearance in The Incredible Hulk. Kevin Feige also confirmed to D23 that Tim Blake Nelson’s Samuel Sterns from the same film would return for Captain America: The New World Order, playing the boss.

Given how Love, at first sight, would include a team of anti-heroes working for Fontaine’s Valentina Allegra, it’s plausible that the villainess would enlist Hammer for technical and material support to the team. That would be really fun!
