With all the attention focused on Daredevil: Born Again, Captain America: New World Order quietly began production on location in Atlanta this week. The first set photos from the film show Anthony Mackie‘s Sam Wilson visiting a West Virginia diner.
The new film will be the fourth installment in the Captain America franchise and the first big screen outing for Mackie’s Wilson since he took on the mantle in the Disney Plus streaming series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Rumors have the plot of the film revolving around the discovery of Adamantium on the body of the Celestial Tiamut and a world going to war over the precious resource.
The photos seem to show work being completed on an unfinished set of a location called Smyth’s Diner which is a location that has been visited in the pages of Marvel Comics in 1991’s The Adventures of Captain America #2.
Location filming is expected to continue throughout the week and expect Mackie to be joined by co-star Danny Ramirez who will be reprising his role and Joaquin Torres and suiting up as the Falcon.
Captain America: New World Order was co-written by Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson and will be directed by Julius Onah. The film is currently slated for a May 3, 2024 theatrical release.
