A new Thunderbolts rumour sheds some light on The Sentry's role in the Marvel Studios movie and it sounds like Steven Yeun will don a comic-accurate costume as the deranged and incredibly powerful hero...

There's a huge amount of intrigue surrounding Marvel Studios' Thunderbolts, especially now a movie which once looked like little more than a low-key follow-up to Black Widow and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is rumoured to introduce The Sentry. 

We're expecting The Walking Dead alum Steven Yeun to play the MCU's most powerful superhero and some additional details have today been revealed about what role the hero (and occasional villain) will play here. 

Apparently, The Sentry is initially going to be part of Val's Thunderbolts team during the first two acts before "something rips him away from them." Could that be The Void? We'd say it's likely. This scooper has also claimed the character is going to don a very comic-accurate costume in the movie. 

Whether The Sentry has a future beyond this team-up remains to be seen, but throwing him into the mix ensures Thunderbolts has incredibly high stakes. 

In the comics, Steve Rogers was initially the only person the Super Soldier Serum worked on. Other government agencies struggled to create their own versions, and it was in the late 1940s that Project: Sentry was first dreamed up.

Meant to be 100,000 more powerful than the serum that created Captain America, the project ultimately got bogged down in red tape. However, years later, a meth addict called Robert Reynolds broke into the laboratory of one of the professors who worked on that and ingested the "Golden Sentry Serum" while looking for a fix.

With that, he gained the power of a million exploding suns, later becoming one of the Marvel Universe's greatest superheroes. There was a twist, though, as The Void - Reynolds' repressed personality - later emerged and took the form of a shadowy monster every bit as powerful as the Golden Guardian. It killed millions and continued to plague The Sentry in the years that followed. 

Thunderbolts' confirmed cast members include Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, Florence Pugh as Yelena Boleva, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes, David Harbour as Red Guardian, Wyatt Russell as U.S. Agent, Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost, Olga Kurylenko as Taskmaster, and Steven Yeun in a mystery role believed to be The Sentry. 

Written by Eric Pearson and directed by Jake Schreier, Thunderbolts is currently set to be released in theaters on December 20, 2024.

''Comic accurate to a T''

This is such an oxymoron...
WruceBayne - 9/26/2023, 8:29 PM
Has it been confirmed that Steven Yuen is The Sentry or is it still just speculation?
KaptainKhaos - 9/26/2023, 10:30 PM
@WruceBayne - Rumours, but considering people will believe everything they hear on Twitter it may as well be
WruceBayne - 9/27/2023, 12:38 AM
@KaptainKhaos - I figured it was. Amedeus Cho is supposed to be in this(with no actor attached to play him) and people don’t think Steven Yuen is playing him is crazy to me.
ObserverIO - 9/27/2023, 5:07 AM
@WruceBayne - They're recasting him with a very noticeably different ethnic background?

They're doing a Burtonverse Harvey Dent?

I don't know anything about The Sentry, but lemme get this straight: Steven Yuen, who's Korean, is playing a character named "Bob Reynolds?" I ASSume he's adopted.

I also ASSume he'll have an all-CGI physique, a la Brett Goldstein's Hercules.

@tylerzero - Put it like this...The Sentry is Marvel's version of Superman but with long blonde hair....the MCU is making The Sentry pretty much Goku...that's how big of change between the comic version and MSU version is.
Amaru - 9/26/2023, 10:06 PM
@jst5 - No, he's not Marvel's version of Superman and it's pretty clear you have zero clue what you are talking about.
KaptainKhaos - 9/26/2023, 10:31 PM
@tylerzero - he could be mixed race, because heaven forbid mixed race people exist.

Also it's not even Confirmed
jst5 - 9/26/2023, 11:13 PM
@Amaru - I'm talking about in power...and yes he's been compared to Supes before.
jst5 - 9/26/2023, 11:18 PM
@KaptainKhaos - Since when did Steven Yeun become "mixed"?I really liked Yeun...he's a solid dude and actor...but at what point do you look at him and think yea this guy makes me think of Marvel's The Sentry!
KaptainKhaos - 9/26/2023, 11:41 PM
@jst5 - He's not mixed, but a Asian mixed dude could have the name Robert Reynolds, lots of 100% white folks have Lee as their last name and not a teaspoon of Asian in their background
CorndogBurglar - 9/27/2023, 12:56 AM
@Amaru - There have been tons of comparisons between Superman and Sentry.

But I agree. Hyperion and Gladiator are both much closer to Superman than Sentry. I mean hell, Gladiator's real name is Kallark, which is just a combination of Kal and Clark.
Taonrey - 9/27/2023, 1:28 AM
@KaptainKhaos - doesn’t even really need to be mixed, could just have two Asian parents and a British great grandfather or whatever

It would be cool if we get the most subtle hints throughout the movie that The Void has been scheming in the shadows against the team and later it's revealed during the 3rd act of the film to the horror of the Thunderbolts.

I always have liked Steven Yeun since TWD and still got to catch up with Invincible S1, I know he'll do fine.

@NinnesMBC - I need to add Beef (Netflix) to your Steven Yuen list. He is incredible in that show, which is incredible in and of itself, and also gets fantastic performances out of Ali Wong and David Choe among others.
Evansly - 9/26/2023, 10:06 PM
@NinnesMBC - Invincible and Beef are both fantastic
NinnesMBC - 9/27/2023, 1:31 AM
@batmanink - Yes I've heard a lot of praise for him from Beef. I have to watch it before Thunderbolts comes out.
NinnesMBC - 9/27/2023, 1:31 AM
@Evansly - i will watch them. Was thinking of also finding Minari.
batmanink - 9/27/2023, 7:26 AM
@NinnesMBC - I don’t think you need to rush. It’s definitely a real life (ish) drama, so it shows more of his emotional range and ability to sell a grounded story. But if this helps decide when you watch it: it is heavy. It’s like almost every episode is Breaking Bad “Jessie’s girlfriend dies” heavy.
HistoryofMatt - 9/26/2023, 9:04 PM
Another surefire box office bomb. Looks like Kevin Feige is more interested in being Woke than in making good movies.

That's a shame.
KaptainKhaos - 9/26/2023, 10:34 PM
@HistoryofMatt - you can't be this simple enough to believe these rumours?

What does woke even mean anymore 😂, you guys keep saying it and you don't even sound smart saying it
newhire13 - 9/26/2023, 11:14 PM
@KaptainKhaos - As of right now “woke” is anything not white and/or male. And agreed. At this point if you complain about things being “woke” you’re just a lazy, idiotic dick.
Mrnorth1921 - 9/27/2023, 1:27 AM
@KaptainKhaos - the problem is. That we see no other actors joining the movie. Sure they can hide casting or haven’t announced it. But if you hired skarsgard or gosling; those would be touted everywhere.
KaptainKhaos - 9/27/2023, 1:31 AM
@Mrnorth1921 - I mean, there is a strike going on and let's not forget, back in the good'ole days before twitterbots tried to spoil shit, surprise appearances happened quite often
Mrnorth1921 - 9/27/2023, 1:49 AM
@KaptainKhaos - true. But what irks me the most is that every darn scooper confirmed it. Makes me think that whoever is leaking this crud is a producer or someone close to feige.
MrDandy - 9/26/2023, 9:32 PM
I hope it is good…but much like Birds of Prey, this is Thunderbolts in name only.
ModHaterSLADE - 9/26/2023, 9:49 PM
Pugh is great as Yelena so I'm looking forward to it.
CAPTAINPINKEYE - 9/26/2023, 10:01 PM
I’ll wait to see how Jams Gunn responds to this rumour before I react to this article.
