When Captain America: Brave New World paused due to Hollywood’s work stoppages, Marvel Studios went to work behind the scenes and took a long look at the work that had been done. It’s becoming clear now that they were none too impressed with what they saw. Following reports that the film would require 5 months of additional photography comes word that the studio has brought in a new writer to craft those scenes.
According to Deadline, Matthew Orton has been tasked to put together the script for the additional photography. Orton must have only just new joined the production as Deadline’s report also indicates filming won’t resume until spring or summer of next year. It was originally reported that reshoots would begin in January. While he previously worked with Marvel Studios as the writer of one episode of Moon Knight, Orton does not have an extensive history as a writer.
Originally subtitled New World Order, Brave New World was originally co-scripted by Dalan Musson and Malcolm Spellman both of whom worked on The Falcon and The Winter Soldier where Anthony Mackie‘s Sam Wilson took up the mantle of Captain America. Originally intended to release on May 3, 2023, following the strikes, Marvel Studios moved the release of the film from July 26, 2024 to February 14, 2025.
