Fans Consider Boycott of ‘Captain America 4’ Over Inclusion of Israeli Character: “We Ain’t Buying Tickets”

We’ve been aware that ‘Captain America: Brave New World’ faced significant delays in production. Originally slated for release this year, the movie encountered a setback when initial test screenings received overwhelmingly negative reviews, prompting a decision for extensive reshoots.

Now, these reshoots are finally in progress, but fans have reacted surprisingly to the news.

The movie is currently being reshoot in Georgia, according to Nexus Point News. Fans have used this opportunity to express their dissatisfaction with the inclusion of a minor character.

The upcoming film is set to feature Sabra, an Israeli superheroine and Mossad Agent with enhanced abilities. Portrayed by Israeli actress Shira Haas, Sabra is known for her strength, agility, and advanced weaponry. However, due to the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict, many fans believe it’s inappropriate to include the character, citing recent Israeli actions against Palestinian civilians.

The responses varied from threats of boycotting the movie to threats of pirating it, with some expressing a desire for the character to be entirely removed from the film.

Although Sabra is considered a relatively minor character in the grand scope of Marvel, this isn’t the first time Marvel Studios has encountered controversy regarding her inclusion.

Two years ago, they released a statement attempting to calm upset fans when news of her appearance in the movie initially surfaced.

While our characters and stories are inspired by the comics 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.
