Wyatt Russell opens up about future Marvel role and working with his father in new series
Wyatt Russell and his father, Kurt Russell, recently sat down for a wide-ranging conversation at 92NY, where they discussed their collaboration on the Apple TV+ series, Monarch: Legacy of Monsters.
During their conversation, Wyatt also shared news about his involvement in the upcoming Marvel movie, Thunderbolts. He revealed that the movie has faced several delays but expressed confidence in the film’s team and his co-stars Florence Pugh, Sebastian Stan, David Harbour, and director Jake Schreier.
Despite not having read a finished script for Thunderbolts, Wyatt praised the film for being different from previous Marvel movies and expressed his excitement for the project.
In the meantime, Wyatt is focused on Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, a series where he and his father play the same character half a century apart.
The father-son duo also discussed their unique experience of playing the same character in the series, noting that they had limited time on set together due to the nature of their roles.
Wyatt shared memories of growing up on the sets of his parents’ films, emphasizing that his parents always prioritized spending quality time with their children.
Kurt added that even in their star-studded family, Wyatt’s talent always stood out, jokingly referring to him as the best actor in the family, despite being a hockey player.
The full conversation will be available next week on Horowitz’s Happy Sad Confused podcast.
