Introducing the Golden Man: Steven Yeun to Play Century in Marvel’s Thunderbolts.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is about to get a whole lot more exciting. Last week, it was announced that Korean-American actor Steven Yeun had been cast for a role in the upcoming Thunderbolts film. While many speculated that he would play an older version of Amadeus Cho (a character and actor of Korean-American heritage), recent reports suggest that he will be playing Century, the golden man with the power of a million exploding suns.
Century Has Officially Been Cast in Marvel’s Thunderbolts
The news has been confirmed by several reliable sources, including Grace Randolph, the Twitter account Can We Get Some Toast, and The Illuminari. The Illuminari reported that the Thunderbolts story will involve Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine’s team facing a Superman-level threat that she had a part in creating. This threat is Century, who is set to be portrayed by Steven Yeun.
The Plot of the Thunderbolts Film
The plot of the Thunderbolts film is said to involve the team visiting Taimut Island in search of adamantium, the metal used to create Wolverine’s skeleton. It is speculated that this is part of Valentina Allegra de Fontaine’s Project X program, which could involve creating a mutant with Wolverine’s healing abilities. This could be why she wants adamantium, as it could be used to infuse the mutant’s body.
The Thunderbolts film is also said to be connected to Captain America 4: New World Order. The primary focus of this film is said to be the government’s attempt to create super soldiers and enhanced individuals. This could be a big part of the story, as it could focus on how the government created Century and how he is now a threat that needs to be taken care of.
Century was created when Robert Reynolds drank the Century Serum, which is a super soldier serum on steroids. In the comics, he is given the power of a million exploding suns, making him the Superman of the MCU. However, it is unclear how his powers will be portrayed in the MCU.
Fans Are Excited For Steven Yeun’s Century
The news of Steven Yeun’s casting has been met with excitement, as fans are eager to see what he will bring to the role of Century. Fan art of him as Century has already been created, and it looks amazing.
The casting of Steven Yeun as Century is just one of the many exciting developments in the MCU. With the Thunderbolts film and Captain America 4: New World Order set to be released in the near future, fans are sure to be in for a treat. Marvel Studios is also said to be taking extra measures to prevent spoilers, making the anticipation even more intense.
