Kevin Feige Almost Brought Marvel’s Superman Sentry in Upcoming MCU Movie Thunderbolts

Kevin Feige Almost Brought Marvel's Superman Sentry in Upcoming MCU Movie Thunderbolts

Super Soldiers in the MCU aren’t a new concept, one of the most popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America, is a super soldier himself after all! However there has been no shortage of such a type of characters in the franchise- we’ve had Bucky Barnes, Red Guardian (from Thunderbolts), and even Emil Blonsky being introduced as super soldiers (or made into one).

However, there is one such super soldier that has not been introduced into the MCU yet. Sentry, Marvel’s answer to DC’s Superman is one such character whose powers as a super soldier match that of Clark Kent’s, and he was almost added to the upcoming movie Thunderbolts!

Sentry Was In The Original Script For Thunderbolts

Thunderbolts is an upcoming and highly anticipated movie that will feature the MCU’s version of Suicide Squad which includes a variety of interesting antiheroes. The plot of the movie is yet to be revealed but as far as everyone knows it’ll be the team going on missions under the orders of the government.

According to reports from insiders KC Walsh and CanWeGetSomeToast on Twitter, the main villain that the group of antiheroes will be facing off is the mighty super soldier named Sentry, who is quite the formidable force in the comics. However, it has also been clarified that the brain behind it all will ironically be Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, the director of the MCU’s version of the CIA.

But as The Direct reports, Sentry was already in the plans for Thunderbolts way before insiders reported the addition of the character in the movie. According to the report Sentry was to be introduced in the movie as a super soldier, much like how he was introduced in the comics!

Compiling all these reports into one, it seems like we’re bound to get Sentry as the main villain in the movie, however, they’re only rumors and should be taken with a grain of salt.
