Challenges for ‘Captain America: Brave New World’ Ahead of Release
The upcoming Marvel Studios film “Captain America: Brave New World” (formerly known as “Captain America: New World Order”), featuring Anthony Mackie and Harrison Ford is set to undergo extensive reshoots before its theatrical release.
According to The Hot Mic’s Jeff Sneider (via Discussing Film) negative test scores have prompted the need for major reshoots for the fourth installment in the Captain America series. These reshoots are reportedly scheduled for January to May 2024.
Three “major” sequences from the initial filming are said to be cut during the reshooting process.
Originally slated for release on July 26, 2024 the film’s schedule has been altered due to the conclusion of the SAG-AFTRA strike. “Captain America: Brave New World” is now expected to hit theaters on February 14, 2025.
Sam Wilson, portrayed by Anthony Mackie, first appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2014’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” as the Falcon. He later took on the mantle of Captain America from Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers.
Mackie reprised his role as Sam in the 2021 Disney+ series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” where he officially became the new Captain America.
Directed by Julius Onah, with a screenplay by Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson the film will also feature returning stars from “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” including Danny Ramirez and Carl Lumbly.
Additionally, “The Incredible Hulk” stars Tim Blake Nelson and Liv Tyler will return as Marvel characters Samuel Sterns/Leader and Betty, respectively. Harrison Ford will portray Thaddeus Ross.
