One star follows the next: After Steven Yeun left the production of the action hit "Thunderbolts", rising star Ayo Edebiri will now also no longer be part of the project.

As reported by Deadline, Edebiri is leaving the production due to scheduling issues. The 28-year-old actress first attracted attention in 2020 with Cooper Raiff's coming-of-age comedy-drama "Shithouse" and went on to become one of Hollywood's most sought-after young actresses in the following years. In 2023, she then won an Emmy for her performance in "The Bear".

Although the departure of Yeun and Edebiri is anything but positive for the production of "Thunderbolts", Marvel was not disheartened and quickly recast the two roles: Lewis Pullman will portray the unstable superhero Sentry, while Geraldine Viswanathan replaces Ayo Edebiri in an as yet unknown role. Viswanathan has already proved herself to be a multifaceted actress and has made a lasting impression in many film projects. In addition to her role in "Thunderbolts", she will also be seen in the cast of Ethan Coen's new movie "Drive-Away Dolls".

Currently, it can only be assumed that the reunion of Yelena Belova, Bucky Barnes, Red Guardian and the others will make its way to theaters on July 25, 2025. Let's hope that everything runs smoothly from now on!
