16 Feb – Harrison Ford's upcoming portrayal of General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross will be different from one that was played by the late William Hurt, said Kevin Feige.

The Marvel Studios head recently shared an update about the upcoming Marvel entry, "Captain America: New World Order", saying that unlike in previous movies, Ford's Ross is the new president of the United States.

"This is certainly a big part for Thaddeus Ross. He's the president of the United States in the film," said Feige in an interview with EW. "And with Harrison, you think about Air Force One, and you think about some of his confrontations with the president in Clear and Present Danger."

"There's a dynamic between President Ross and Sam Wilson. They have a history together, but in this film, we'll be seeing the dynamic between Captain America and the president of the United States in a way that is just incredible," he added.

As Feige mentioned, Ford is already experienced in portraying such a role, having played the character President James Marshall in Wolfgang Petersen's "Air Force One" (1997).

In the same interview, Feige stated that Ford is embracing the role, adding, "He is tireless with the amount of work that he does."

The upcoming movie, which will see Anthony Mackie donning the Captain America suit, is set to be released in May 2024, with filming to begin soon.
