Thunderbolts Film: Steven Yeun New Cast Member
Marvel’s less heroic characters will reunite in the Thunderbolts film. Now it has a new addition to its cast: Steven Yeun. The actor who participated in The Walking Dead will be in this saga, although it is not known what character he will play due to Marvel’s policies.
What is certain is that he will be a rather dark character of this universe. The reason would be their companions, including Ghost, The Winter Soldier, Red Guardian and Taskmaster. As you can see, Thunderbolt’s film will have a group surrounded by pure anti-heroes, so this one will likely be as well.

In Thunderbolts film we can see how a group of villains are dedicated to save the earth, instead of seeking to dominate it. This is due to the deaths of all the avengers who would have succumbed to Onslaught’s attack. At least that’s how it is in the comics, although Marvel could change the plot slightly.
In this one we will see the team leader, Bucky Barnes himself, also known as the Winter Soldier. As for who recruits the Thunderbolts film, we have Baron Zemo in charge of recruiting as many villains as he can. Feige also commented, it will be a group of evil people, where their leader is the best of them all.
As for its premiere, this will air on July 26, 2024 and will be part of Marvel’s Phase V.
