Reshoots Notwithstanding, ‘Captain America: Brave New World’ Will Be Much Cheaper Than ‘The Marvels’

Matthew Orton Tapped for Reshoots on Captain America Brave New World Slated for Mid2024

We know that ‘Captain America: Brave New World’ faced many delays. The movie was supposed to come out this year, but early test screenings got very negative feedback. This led to major reshoots, delaying the release by nearly a year. It is now set to come out on February 15, 2025.

The test audiences were reportedly unhappy with the action in the movie, saying it wasn’t as good as in previous Captain America movies. The romance between Anthony Mackie and the female co-lead was uninteresting, and the political themes were boring rather than exciting and engaging.

The movie is now undergoing reshoots in Atlanta, expected to last around 22 days. Matthew Orton was hired to write the script for the reshoots, and some big names have joined the cast, including Giancarlo Esposito in an unknown villain role.

Interestingly, even with extensive reshoots, the movie won’t cost as much as ‘The Marvels’ or ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,’ according to The Hollywood Reporter. In fact, ‘Brave New World’ is expected to cost significantly less than ‘The Marvels.’ ‘The Marvels’ was a costly mistake for the studio, with production costs of $270 million, $110 million for prints and ads, $21 million for residuals and other distribution expenses, $54 million for interest and overhead, and unspecified participation, totaling $455 million. Overall, the studio lost $237 million on the release.

Recently, we’ve learned that ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ was one of the most expensive movies ever made, with a budget of $414.9 million, raising concerns about its profitability for the studio.
