He died last March William Hurt at 71 years old. He had a career full of memorable roles behind him and one of them was that of General Thaddeus ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross, whom he had first played in The incredible Hulk of 2008. As much as the film starring Edward Norton was then considered a misstep for the Marvel Universe, Hurt (as well as other actors such as, later, Tim Roth in the role of Abomination) remained in the franchise, and he returned to play it in Captain America: Civil War either black widow, which in 2021 would be the last MCU movie where he would participate.
