Who Is Sentry and Will He Appear in ‘Thunderbolts?’ Marvel’s Most Powerful Hero, Explained
MCU fans are eagerly awaiting the introduction of Sentry, the anti-powered superhero who looks like he’ll make his debut in the team-up film. Thunderboltswhich was played by an actor who is already a superhero icon.
on the 17th of November, Invincible creator Robert Kirkman let slip in an interview that Steven Yeun, who plays the titular hero of the Prime Video animated series, has told him that he is portraying the Sentry in Thunderbolts, which is currently scheduled for release on July 25, 2025, as part of Phase Six of the MCU. If this is indeed the case, we doubt we’ll be seeing much more of Yeun in the franchise. Not only that a Sentry The Disney Plus series is rumored in December 2022, but the Sentry is Marvel’s strongest hero.
In the comics, Robert (not Ryan) Reynolds is an omega threat who has gone up against the likes of Doctor Doom and had his own, but has historically been underappreciated. Perhaps his incoming MCU debut could finally change things for the Golden Guardian of Good.
What is Sentry’s origin story?
Although created in 2000 by Paul Jenkins, Jae Lee, and Rick Veitch alone, Sentry is one of the earliest superheroes in Marvel comics, even before the Fantastic Four. Most see him as an obvious analogue to DC’s Superman, but he’s still a brave hero in his own right with an interesting history.
In 1947, Canada’s K Division and the United States’ Operation: Rebirth merged to form Project Sentry. The secret behind this union was to take the super soldier serum used to make Steve Rogers Captain America to the next level, but the Cold War fragmented the operation into multiple sub-projects ahead. As a result, it was difficult to keep track of all the data and resources for years and Project Sentry’s lab work found its way to an anonymous professor who tested the formula and succeeded.
Robert was a troublemaker as a teenager and was addicted to metabolism. He entered the Professor’s laboratory and drank the Golden Sentry Serum which gave him the power of a million suns. He created an explosion and grew in strength, but incidentally killed his partner and the security guards. Robert asked the professor to create more of the serum and later Project Sentry wanted to run tests on him, but in the end he chose to go out into the world and become a superhero Sentry after fighting bullies school.
Sentry #1 presents Robert Reynolds in the modern age as a middle-aged man who has forgotten that he was a superhero. He has flashbacks to his historical adventures as a superhero who fought alongside other heroes to defeat the Void, a dark entity that embodies negativity. The Void tells Robert that he is coming back, and this pushes Robert into a state of madness that pushes his wife away and turns the Sentry again. When he makes The Void the story changes and tells him he’s not a hero, and Robert questions what’s real and what’s not.
To make matters more confusing, the other heroes don’t remember the Sentry, including Reed Richards/Mr. All great, but when Robert says the word “unicorn” during his conversation, something clicks. This leads Reed to inspect a unicorn statue given to him as Robert’s best man at his wedding. It was true after all and Robert fully embraces his superhero identity and prepares to battle Heaven.
How is the Sentry connected to the Thunderbolts?
Valentina Allegra De Fontaine (Julia Louis Dreyfus) is putting together a team of anti-heroes from across the MCU to put together a team that can do things the Avengers can’t. I Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, powerful nations plan to extract the country’s Vibranium. Valentina is the director of the CIA and the US government has stolen the vibration detection radar of MIT student Riri Williams (Dominique Thorne), leading many to believe that she (and therefore the Thunderbolts) will try to put this mission into action. accomplished. The question is how does Sentry fit into all of this?
Sentry was born from a top secret program and as Valentina’s actions confirm, government parties are working in the shadows to address this superhero situation. The Sentry Project could be something she is aware of in order for the United States to have its own superpowered hero on call. Valentina is the type of character who has plans on top of plans and no one should underestimate the lengths she would go to accomplish a goal.
If Marvel Studios decides to stay more faithful to the comics, it would make sense for Sentry to have his own solo project next. Thunderbolts. Robert Reynolds’ story is complex and deeply personal, and the heavier themes would take time to explore, especially if they include Sentry: Reborn by Jenkins and John Romita Jr., where Robert is diagnosed with schizophrenia. It would also be necessary to nail down how Sentry stands alone and that he is just a clone of Superman.
The Sentry may be the most difficult page-to-screen adaptation the MCU has ever had to tackle, but the rewards were well worth it.
