Why Harrison Ford Joined the MCU as Ross | Daily News Byte


Earned or not, Harrison Ford has a reputation for being a grumpy old rich man who doesn’t feel the need to answer to anyone about anything — and people love that about him. So, people were surprised when it was announced that Ford would be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe to take over the role of General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross from William Hurt, who died earlier this year. Most people assumed the guy didn’t care about the MCU until now. However, in an interview with The Playlist, Harrison Ford explained a very simple reason why he joined the MCU as General Ross.

He said, “Hey, look, I’ve done a lot. I now want to do some of the things I have never done.” That’s it. That’s the straightforward, detail-light, almost Hemingway-ish response expected from Harrison Ford about why he joined the MCU as Ross. And when asked if he could do motion capture for the role — since Ross became the Red Hulk in the comics — Ford “just smiled and replied with the ‘zipped-lips’ sign.” Interpret that as you will. In any case, Ross is said to be coming out Captain America: New World Order.

Harrison Ford is 80 years old, but he has a double act Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny coming out next year and New World Order coming in 2024. That’s the recent career in blockbuster filmmaking, even if you forget the whole thing Star Wars thing.
