According to entertainment news outlet Deadline, Yeun left the project due to scheduling issues as the film's production was impacted by the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) strikes in 2023.

Yeun, known for his performances in “The Walking Dead” show and movies such as “Okja”, “Minari” and “Nope”, was cast for a key role in the Marvel Studios film last February.

"Thunderbolts" will feature an ensemble cast of Florence Pugh, Sebastian Stan, David Harbour, Hannah John-Kamen, Wyatt Russell, Olga Kurylenko and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Jake Schreier of “Paper Towns” fame will direct the film, which is scheduled for release in July 2025.

In the Marvel Comics, the Thunderbolts is a team of villains, anti-heroes and reformed baddies.

Yeun was most recently seen in Netflix series "Beef", co-starring Ali Wong. He will next feature in Oscar-winning director Bong Joon Ho’s “Micky 17”, starring Robert Pattinson in the lead, as well as "Love Me" with Kristen Stewart.
