When I first read this I dismissed it, but the Barside Buzz is that Ghost has been cut from Thunderbolts. To begin with it’s worth noting the reason this seems so bizarre is that Ghost and the actress who plays her Jannah John-Kamen was revealed at SDCC. So Ghost was officially unveiled as being in the team and the actress was present to promote the movie. (See header image which was official.)
However things do change and Thunderbolts hasn’t started filming yet. Cue a regular Marvel insider claiming that they’ve heard Ghost is no longer in the movie. As I said above, I just instantly dismissed this as obvious crossed wires. I mean surely unless John-Kamen has a health or personal issue, this could not be? Check that one out before we continue down the rabbit hole.

So, here is some potential back up of this claim from another reasonably accurate insider to add to the mix.
Heard she was being shifted to another project that explores her connection to SHIELD and Hydra more. Probably something Secret. https://t.co/LjDaqZIqGn

The Watcher indicates they’ve heard Ghost has moved to another project. Again, though, this seems crazy, but at the same time why make such a bold claim unless you have genuine information? This is not a bandwagon you’d want to jump on to bump your clout (they all do it), because it’s too easy to be caught out.
One more little detail is that Grace Randolph says she got a message from a source whilst doing her latest video, you can find it Here, timestamp 51:15 if you don’t believe me. Now all Grace says is that a source confirmed Ghost was not on a current character breakdown list they had. However she was quick to point out that until there’s more news, that could simply be an error. Still, I’m intrigued by this one I won’t deny.
If it’s legit, why has it happened? The fans that follow these kind of rumors are already lamenting this if it’s true. It seems like a lot of fans were most keen to see Ghost in Thunderbolts because the other characters are all a bit samey. Ghost whilst not being great in Ant-Man and the Wasp does have a cool power set. The rest of the Thunderbolts gang all have a similar skill set.
I mean if I asked you who would be in a Thunderbolts team a couple years ago, we’d probably have all said Abomination, Zemo, maybe Justin Hammer? Is this Thunderbolts team in danger of becoming a bit boring without the likes of Ghost?
I guess we will just have to wait and see what comes out officially regarding this. You feel like it’s something Marvel may see spreading and if its true get out ahead of it. Has Ghost been cut from Thunderbolts? You tell me what you think in the usual place below.
