“Indiana Jones” and “Star Wars” star Harrison Ford is entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe as he has just been cast in “Captain America: New World Order.” Ford will take over the role of General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, who was previously played by the late William Hurt. The actor, who died earlier this year, first played Ross in 2008’s “The Incredible Hulk” before returning in “Captain America: Civil War,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Avengers: Endgame,” and “Black Widow.” Ford recently wrapped up his final turn as Indiana Jones in the upcoming “Indiana Jones 5” opposite “Fleabag” writer and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
