Principal photography on Captain America: New World Order is underway in Atlanta and set photos from the fourth installment in the franchise have been beginning to roll out. While they’ve been incredibly mundane to date, a new set of behind the scenes photos has provided the first look at one of the film’s new heroes!
New set photos from Atlanta’s Majestic Diner have provided the first look at Shira Haas who will be joining the MCU as mutant hero Sabra. Haas was spotted on location with stars Anthony Mackie and Danny Ramirez. While both Mackie and Ramirez appear to be in street clothes, a closer look at Haas suggests she may be sporting some tactical gear that’s being hidden by her overcoat.
Hass’s Sabra will be the MCU’s first Israeli superhero and while her comic book counterpart has often been the center of controversy, Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige says they’re taking a “new approach” to the character.
While our characters and stories are inspired by the comics,” the studio said in a statement to Variety, “they are always freshly imagined for the screen and today’s audience, and the filmmakers are taking a new approach with the character Sabra who was first introduced in the comics over 40 years ago.Kevin Feige
Details on the character’s role in the film have been kept secret but sharing a scene in an American diner with Captain America and Falcon would certainly seem to indicate she’ll be teaming up with that duo to take on whatever injustices reveal themselves. Captain America: New World Order is scheduled for a May 3, 2024 release.
