Marvel's own Tarzan is rumored to appear in the recently confirmed 'Thunderbolts' movie, and fans are wondering what that means for the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Lord of the Savage Lands was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in the 1960s, and this primitive savage fighting dinosaurs on his native soil was a great success with audiences. Over time, however, the whole concept of Ka-Zar needed a major revision, and he went from an illiterate fighter to an intelligent and well-mannered young man with a distrust of modern civilization. Since the character's design was still a bit outdated and seemed alien to other Marvel superheroes, fans absolutely did not expect to see him in the MCU.

But according to one prominent insider, Ka-Zar is set to appear in the upcoming 'Thunderbolts' movie, which will center around a superhero team of reformed villains.

"That piece of vibranium tracking tech made by Riri will become very valuable. Might just be included in a very thunderous project," – @greatphase15.

Fans are already speculating what the upcoming movie might be about, coming up with some pretty unexpected theories. And since the dinosaur-infested Savage Lands will apparently debut along with its ruler, it will be a lot of fun to see interactions between T-Rex and the likes of Doctor Strange or Spider-Man.

"The Thunderbolts being about the team going into the Savage Land would make for an awesome movie. Imagine a bunch of anti-heroes/villains going up against dinosaurs and mutants," – /cbekel3618.

More interestingly, the casting for the part of Ka-Zar is still undisclosed, and it seems that fans have already found the perfect candidate for the role of the muscular and dangerous savage – Alexander Skarsgard, who've actually played Tarzan already in 'The Legend of Tarzan' by David Yates (2016).
