Tim Blake Nelson Hypes Up Fans With One Small Update on The Leader in the Upcoming ‘Captain America: Brave New World’

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

‘Captain America: Brave New World’ has had a troubled development. The movie was delayed multiple times due to bad test screenings and the SAG-AFTRA strike and much of the story has been rewritten.

Little is known about the plot of the movie, except for the brief clip that was shown during CinemaCon. We know that we can expect Harrison Ford’s Thunderbolt Ross, Tim Blake Nelson’s The Leader, some members of the Serpent Society, and Red Hulk.

Speaking of ‘The Leader’ some time ago we shared with you a marketing concept of what the character should look like, and fans were pretty much underwhelmed. Now Time Blake Nelson during an episode of Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum revealed something surprising.

According to him, The Leader will be made with practical effects with as little CGI used as possible.

The Leader will be done “as practically as possible, with an absence of digital… stuff.

These are good news indeed, since some characters really don’t require all that much CGI if the actors are willing to wear prosthetics and a lot of makeup. Fans are certainly looking forward to seeing The Leader’s giant green head.

I think we can all agree that sometimes studios go a bit overboard with CGI-ing characters, sometimes it is necessary like it was the case with She-Hulk, her TV show being the most expensive for MCU to date.

‘Captain America: Brave New World’ is bound to the Leader’s second live-action MCU project. Doctor Samuel Sterns, a cellular biologist and professor at Grayburn College, was working on finding a cure for Bruce Banner’s condition. He successfully developed a temporary antidote for Banner, but also inadvertently transformed Emil Blonsky into the Abomination. When Sterns was exposed to Banner’s blood, his mental abilities rapidly increased due to a mutation. Natasha Romanoff intervened and subdued him, delivering him to S.H.I.E.L.D. for custody.

Now the presence of The Leader certainly implies that the Hulk will also be in the movie, in a recent interview Ruffalo revealed that he does have a role in ‘Captain America: New World Order’ only to deny this only a few hours later.
