New Reports Emerge on Why Sebastian Stan is Absent From the Set of Thunderbolts

‘Thunderbolts*’ was recently confirmed to start filming finally, after a somewhat troubled development and problems with the cast following the SAG-AFTRA strike. Recently Florence Pugh uploaded a video to her social media accounts guiding the fans through the set.

We got a good look into her new costume as well as the new title of the movie ‘Thunderbolts*’ with an asterisk, which wasn’t clarified by the officials yet. The filming technically at the end of February at Trilith Studios and Atlanta Metro Studios in Atlanta, and a few days ago, reports suggested that Sebastian Stan, reprising his role as Bucky was absent from the set completely.

Alex Perez, a notable industry insider and leaker explained that it is correct and gave us a good reason why. According to him, Bucky is supposed to join the team later on, which means that there’s little reason for him to be on the set from day one. He also explained that the scenes currently being shot involve the team in a large vault where Sentry will be discovered.

‘Thunderbolts*’ didn’t have easy development so far, being marked by the SAG-AFTRA strike, and then months before the movie was supposed to shoot Steven Yeun gave up on his role of Sentry, forcing the studio to recast him with Lewis Pullman being the top choice to replace him with the rumors soon confirmed by the studio.

Laurence Fishburne and Rachel Weisz are set to reprise their roles as Bill Foster and Melina Vostokoff in the MCU. Geraldine Viswanathan joined the cast as de Fontaine’s assistant after a schedule delay led to the departure of another actor. The film’s release date was moved to May 2, 2025, swapping with The Fantastic Four. Joanna Calo was tasked with rewriting the script, with earlier drafts focusing on the team’s mission, potentially resulting in their deaths.
