Steven Yeun Exits ‘Thunderbolts’ Cast


Marvel’s upcoming anti-hero film will feature David Harbour, Florence Pugh, and Wyatt Russell.

This article covers a developing story. Continue to check back with us as we will be adding more information as it becomes available.

Steven Yeun (Minari, Invincible) has exited Marvel’s Thunderbolts film, per The Hollywood Reporter. The actor was set to make his MCU debut in the antihero-led film, directed by Jake Schreier (Beef, Robot & Frank). As of now, Thunderbolts is still slated for a July 25, 2025 release.

As of now, the reason for Yeun’s departure is unclear. The most likely culprit would be the recent SAG-AFTRA strikes, which set the production timeline of Thunderbolts back significantly. Filming is finally set to get underway this coming spring, but who knows if Yeun was able to make that schedule work. Coincidentally, Marvel never officially confirmed Yeun’s involvement, though it had been reported nearly a year ago.

Who Was Steven Yeun Playing in ‘Thunderbolts’?

Similarly to Marvel’s lack of confirmation for Yeun’s participation in the film, it was never officially revealed who he would be playing in the project. Robert Kirkman, the creator of Invincible (a series in which Yeun voices the lead character), let it slip that the actor would be playing none other than Sentry. A Superman-esque character, Robert Reynolds/Sentry is a strong, superpowered being whose powers derive from the Super Soldier Serum. Sentry would likely be one of the highest-powered characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and his eventual debut is certainly now up in the air.
