Steven Yeun Is Officially No Longer Participating In ‘Thunderbolts’ as Sentry

Steven Yeun Not Playing Sentry!

A few weeks back, a rumor was spreading that American actor Steven Yeun was going to play Sentry in Marvel Studios’ upcoming ‘Thunderbolts.’ However, according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, Steven Yeun is now officially no longer playing the Sentry in Thunderbolts, due to scheduling conflicts.

Yeun’s participation in Thunderbolts was initially mentioned in February, even though Marvel did not formally reveal the cast. During a D23 presentation five months prior, the studio disclosed that the film would feature Marvel mainstays Wyatt Russell, Florence Pugh, Sebastian Stan, and David Harbour.

Similar to numerous films and shows, Thunderbolts was impacted by the simultaneous writers’ and actors’ strikes that occurred in 2017, causing chaos in Hollywood schedules. Filming for Thunderbolts, which was first scheduled to start in July 2024, was postponed until July 2025.
