Invincible creator Robert Kirkman has let slip a major spoiler about who Steven Yeun will be playing in the MCU. 

Yeun voices Mark Grayson in the animated Invincible show, adapted from writer Kirkman and artists Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley's comic series of the same name. 

"My good friend Steven Yeun is playing the Sentry in a movie," Kirkman revealed on a livestream with comic artist David Finch. 

"He called me, he went in for a costume fitting," Kirkman added, then seemingly realized he might be revealing a little too much. "I hope I'm not – I don't think this is a spoiler or anything that will get anybody in trouble. I don't know, maybe, we'll see. I don't care, I don't work for Marvel, what are they going to do to me?

"He said, 'I just came back for a costume fitting for the Sentry,'" Kirkman continued. "'I guess I only do superheroes that are yellow and blue.'" 

Sentry is a character in Marvel comics with incredibly powerful abilities, but he has a dark alter-ego named the Void, who is essentially an evil, mirrored version of the hero. 

Yeun is joining the MCU in Thunderbolts, the upcoming Marvel Phase 5 movie that features Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova, Sebastian Stan's Winter Soldier, David Harbour's Red Guardian, Wyatt Russell's US Agent, Olga Kurylenko's Taskmaster, and Hannah John-Kamen's Ghost. Harrison Ford is also appearing as General Ross, with Julia Louis-Dreyfus co-starring as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. 

The film arrives December 20, 2024. In the meantime, check out our guide to all the upcoming Marvel movies and TV shows to fill out your watchlist.
