Steven Yeun is set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the actor has joined the cast of Thunderbolts.

Actor Steven Yeun, who rose to fame with his role as Glenn Rhee on the AMC series The Walking Dead, has boarded the upcoming Marvel Studios movie Thunderbolts, as reported by Deadline. The identity of Yeun’s Thunderbolts character is being kept under wraps, but the actor is said to be playing someone who could have a major future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Fans are speculating that Steven Yeun could be playing The Sentry in Thunderbolts. The Sentry is a superhero with incredible strength and the power of flight, but he also has a dark side and struggles with mental health issues. In the comics, the character has been both a hero and a villain, and his complex backstory could make for a compelling addition to the MCU.
