Steven Yeun Joins Marvel Studios Thunderbolts In Key Role


Recommended Posts

Oscar-nominated Steven Yeun is set to join Marvel Studios’ Thunderbolts, and sources from within indicate that this is a major role for the film and could also play a role going forward in future films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Yeun joins an ensemble cast that includes Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, Sebastian Stan as Winter Soldier, David Harbour as Red Guardian, Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, Wyatt Russell as US Agent, Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost and Olga Kurylenko as Taskmaster. Ayo Edebiri also joined the ensemble in an undisclosed role.

Marvel Studios’ Thunderbolts is being directed by Jake Schreier, from a script penned by Black Widow scribe Eric Pearson.  Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige will be producing.  Not much is known about the plot of the film, but in the comics, it revolves around a group of villains who are sent on missions commissioned by the government.  The film is scheduled for a July 26th, 2024 release.

Yeun is best known for his TV role on The Walking Dead and his movie roles earned him his first Oscar nomination for best actor in his starring role in A24’s Minari, followed by Jordan Peele's Nope.

I've seen rumors that Yeun is playing The Sentry. I mean... I guess they're  going the CGI route as Sentry is supposed to be a fairly large guy. And Yeun is 5'5" in high heels.

I suppose they did the same with Tatania Maslany in She-Hulk and that mostly looked pretty okay..
