The SAG-AFTRA strike wrapped up yesterday. The Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) has finally reached an agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP). The exact details of the deal are still under wraps, but it marks the end of a prolonged battle involving concerns about the use of artificial intelligence in actors’ performances and the actors’ push for residual payments from shows and films streaming online.
With the strike behind us, several MCU projects are back on track, resuming their normal schedules. ‘Deadpool 3,’ which was only halfway through production, will resume filming, along with Sony’s ‘Venom 3,’ whose release date was pushed to the end of 2024. In a recent episode of Hot Mic, Jeff Sneider discussed ‘Captain America: Brave New World’ and the implications of the strike’s conclusion on this highly anticipated project.
It turns out that the movie is set for reshoots due to poor test screenings, and at least three major sequences will be cut. The latest news on ‘Captain America’ suggested a release date switch with ‘Deadpool 3.’ However, with reshoots scheduled between January and May, the movie’s release has been delayed to February 14, 2025.
‘Captain America: Brave New World’ isn’t the only film facing delays; ‘Deadpool 3’ remains the sole movie on the MCU’s 2024 release calendar.
Meanwhile, the sequel to ‘The Falcon & The Winter Soldier’ underwent a name change from ‘New World Order’ to ‘Brave New World’ during shooting. Set images hint at the appearance of King Cobra, a notable Captain America villain, and recent rumors resurfaced about the inclusion of both Hulk and She-Hulk in the movie.
