The DC Universe and the Marvel Cinematic Universe continue to expand, and the latter’s equivalent of Superman will most likely be introduced two weeks after the DC Universe’s reboot and the introduction of the new Superman. As the DC Extended Universe didn’t have the success Warner expected, the studio made many changes to their plans and a whole reboot was announced, led by James Gunn and Peter Safran. The new DC Universe will feature a united continuity and story across live-action films, TV, animation, and video games, and it will kick off with the introduction of a new Superman.
Directed by James Gunn and starring David Corenswet, Superman: Legacy will follow a young version of Superman as he goes on a journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human family. Superman: Legacy is scheduled for a July 11, 2025 release, and just 14 days later, the second movie from the MCU’s Phase 6, Thunderbolts, will arrive. Directed by Jake Schreier, Thunderbolts will introduce a team of reformed antagonists, of which most are already-known characters, along with new characters. Among those is believed to be Sentry, the MCU’s equivalent of Superman, which makes for an interesting coincidence between the MCU and the DC Universe.
Sentry’s Thunderbolts Appearance Would Be Two Weeks After Superman: Legacy
The Thunderbolts team is confirmed to be formed by Bucky Barnes, Ghost, U.S. Agent, Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, Yelena Belova, Red Guardian, and Taskmaster, but there might be a much more powerful character on his way, as well. Rumors about Sentry’s introduction in Thunderbolts began when Steve Yeun was cast in an unconfirmed role, and they also suggest that Sentry will start as a member of the Thunderbolts only to be pulled away from the team (for some reason) and become the antagonist.
Sentry has the power of a million exploding suns and his molecules move an instant ahead of the current timeline, essentially making him omnipotent.
Sentry is considered Marvel’s Superman thanks to his powers and abilities. Thanks to a version of the Super-Soldier Serum, Sentry has the power of a million exploding suns and his molecules move an instant ahead of the current timeline, essentially making him omnipotent. With more changes to the MCU’s schedule as a result of the 2023 Hollywood strikes, Thunderbolts will now be released two weeks after the DC Universe’s Superman: Legacy, so superhero fans will have a chance to compare the original Superman to Marvel’s equivalent of the most powerful superhero of all.
Why The MCU Needs To Introduce Sentry To The Franchise
Although the MCU has already introduced characters with god-level powers (like Captain Marvel), it hasn’t been the best at handling these characters. Sentry will need Marvel to explore the complexities of his character while also showcasing his immense power, and if done well, he could be serious competition to DC Universe’s new Superman. The MCU needs a new powerful and complex character, especially as the Multiverse Saga has been struggling with how it handles its characters, and Sentry has the potential to become the next big villain in the MCU, similar to what happened to Loki – and just like the God of Mischief, there’s a lot to explore and discover in Sentry’s history that can take him on different paths throughout his time in the MCU.
