Despite Reshoots, ‘Captain America: Brave New World’ Will Cost “Significantly” Less Than ‘The Marvels’

Captain America Brave New World Plot Cast Release Date Everything We Know So Far

We know that ‘Captain America: Brave New World’ was stuck in a development hell for quite some time. The movie was supposed to be released this year but after early test screenings proved to have overwhelmingly negative feedback, the flick was scheduled for a massive round of reshoots.

This delayed it for close to a year, now it’s set to be released on February 15, 2025.

The test audiences were reportedly unhappy with the action in the movie, considering it subpar when compared to previous Captain America movies. The romance between Anthony Mackie and the female co-lead was flat at best and the political themes of the film weren’t divisive and exciting but boring.

Now the movie is currently undergoing a round of reshoots in Atlanta, and it’s expected that the process will last around 22 days. Matthew Orton was hired to pen the script for the reshoots and some big names have joined the cast in the meantime, like Giancarlo Esposito’s so-far unknown villain character.

What’s interesting is that 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’s insiders. In fact, the movie is cited to cost significantly less than ‘The Marvels.’ ‘The Marvels’ was a costly mistake for the studio, the production costs were $270.0 million, prints and ads amounted to $110.0 million, residuals and other distribution expenses were $21.0 million, interest and overhead were $54.0 million, and participations are not specified. Total expenses amount to $455.0 million, overall the studio lost $237 million dollars on the release.

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