Former 'Walking Dead' star Steven Yeun exits Marvel Studios' Thunderbolts film, confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter due to scheduling conflicts

Thunderbolts faced setbacks with production delays from the Hollywood strikes of 2023, resulting in scheduling clashes leading to Yeun's departure

 Rumors hinted at Yeun playing the Sentry; close friend and co-creator Robert Kirkman confirmed this news in November.

Kirkman amusingly highlighted Yeun's realization of both superhero roles, the Sentry and 'Invincible's' Mark Grayson, donning yellow and blue costumes.

 Alongside film, Yeun continues to voice the lead, Mark Grayson, in Prime Video's 'Invincible' adaptation.

 The star-studded ensemble features Sebastian Stan, Hannah John-Kamen, Wyatt Russell, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Olga Kurylenko, and Harrison Ford reprising his role.

 Ayo Edebiri, known from 'The Bear,' joins in a yet-to-be-disclosed role, expanding the film's diverse lineup.

Originally set for late 2024, Thunderbolts is now slated for a July 25, 2025 theatrical release due to these production challenges.
