MCU’s Thunderbolts, which was announced at Disney’s D23 expo back in 2022 seem to be suffering one disappointment after another. First, it was pushed back due to the dual strike in Hollywood just like many other projects. MCU is still looking for Kang’s replacement and amidst all these, Steven Yeun dropped out of this much-anticipated project citing scheduling conflicts.



With him out, there appeared many names to star as Sentry. Fans have already speculated actors like Alexander Skarsgård, Henry Cavill, Alan Ritchson, and some others in the role. A recent report suggested that the MCU would be offering the role of Sentry to a 27-year-old actor. However, it’s been said that even this actor passed this project.
