Marvel Studios has found a new writer for their Thunderbolts film. Variety reports that Lee Sung Jin (Beef) has come on board to replace Eric Pearson as the scripter for the antihero team-up film.

The move makes for a reunion between Jin, director Jake Schreier, and Steven Yeun, who all worked together on Beef for Netflix. Yeun is making his MCU debut in the film, playing an as-yet-unrevealed role.

“I’m rewriting [Thunderbolts],” Lee told the site. “It’s the whole squad again. Jake asked me if I would come on board. I probably should have taken a break, but there’s a lot of themes and exciting things about the movie that I couldn’t help but sign on.”

The film stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Sebastian Stan, Hannah Jon-Kamen, Wyatt Russell, Olga Kerleynko, Yuen, and Ayo Edebiri. It is set to release on July 26th, 2024.
