I don’t wish to jinx this through the use of Dwayne Johnson’s ill-fated phrases however, the hierarchy of energy within the Marvel Universe is about to alter… as a result of Steven Yeun is ready to play the all-powerful Sentry in Thunderbolts.
The MCU has already launched us to some extremely highly effective Marvel characters — from Captain America and Thor, to formidable Marvel villains like Thanos — however the Thunderbolts launch date may make all of them look reasonably insignificant.
It’s lengthy been speculated that Steven Yeun’s function within the upcoming Marvel film can be that of Sentry, and now Robert Kirkman — creator of The Strolling Useless and Invincible — has confirmed this. He instructed comedian guide artist, David Finch: “My good pal Steven Yeun is taking part in the Sentry in a film… Yeah, he known as me, he went in for a dressing up becoming.”
If anybody would know what Steven Yeun is as much as, it’s most likely Kirkman. Having labored with the actor on The Strolling Useless, the 2 teamed up once more for Invincible to create among the best TV sequence of latest years. Funnily sufficient, the characters of Invincible and Sentry do have one factor in frequent, aside from being very, very robust.
“He known as me and he mentioned, ‘I simply got here again from a dressing up becoming for the Sentry. I assume I solely do superheroes which might be yellow and blue,’” Kirkman added. “He mentioned he was on the costume becoming and was like, ‘Aww, crap. I forgot Invincible was yellow and blue.’”
Within the comics, Sentry — also called Robert Reynolds — dons a golden yellow swimsuit with blue cape and trimmings. He’s akin to Superman, in that he can just about do something and all the things, although he’s acquired a far darker facet than the Man of Metal. Whereas he’s usually been a power for good, and has helped the Avengers time and time once more, Sentry has a violent streak which has seen him overstep the road in the case of the superhero ethical code on a couple of event.
Within the comedian books, Sentry killed his former sidekick, he joined Norman Osborn’s Darkish Avengers crew, and he destroyed all of Asgard. It’s not his fault totally, although. You see, Robert Reynolds transformation into Sentry happened due to a darkish and evil entity often called the Void, and when the Void latches on to him, he can’t fairly management what he does. Due to this, he has harmed many innocents in his time, together with his spouse, Lindy.
With Sentry seemingly concerned with the Thunderbolts — a crew of questionable anti-heroes assembled by Valentina Allegra de Fontaine to do shady work on the facet — it’s extremely seemingly the Sentry we meet within the superhero film will lean into this imply streak. Both method, if Marvel will get it proper, we might be given probably the most unstoppable forces the MCU has ever seen.
Now, I do know what you’re considering… absolutely Kevin Feige gained’t be too happy if his large secret has been leaked. Nicely, Kirkman isn’t too fussed. ” I hope I’m not… I don’t assume it is a spoiler or something that may get anyone in bother. I don’t know, perhaps. We’ll see. I don’t care. I don’t work for Marvel. What are they going to do to me?” Kirkman mentioned.
Nicely, the cat’s out the bag now anyway, so let’s simply await the official affirmation to roll in after which we will actually get excited. Till then, we will look again on all of the Marvel films so as and reminisce in regards to the good outdated days, or sit up for Part 6 and take into account the place Thunderbolts will match into the way forward for Marvel. Or, you may discover the world of the varied Marvel sequence, and if it’s small display screen enjoyable you need, you’d higher be watching Invincible season 2 episode 4.
