Captain America: New World Order Filming

Filming is underway in Atlanta, Georgia, for the fourth movie in the Captain America franchise, Captain America: New World Order.

The Kevin Feige-produced flick started filming in late March, with one of the earliest scenes filmed on Ponce De Leon Avenue near the Plaza Theater at the Majestic Diner.

The Storyline of Captain America: New World Order

While the plot is being kept under wraps, we do know that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier creator Malcolm Spellman has penned the script for the flick along with Dalan Musson.

Additionally, we do know a few of the plot details. The film is said to center around an international conflict concerning a newly discovered metal called Adamantium. The metal was discovered on Tiamut, the celestial from Eternals, which is now an island. Every country wants a piece of the Adamantium. And everyone also wants to claim the island as their own.

Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross (played by Harrison Ford) is one of the film’s numerous villains. His character was first introduced in the Marvel comics in 1962. And he ends up leading the team of anti-heroes known as the Thunderbolts.

For Captain America: New World Order, Ross wants to claim the island (and the supply of the new metal) at all costs. The only thing standing in his way? Sam Wilson’s Captain America (played by Anthony Mackie) and the new group of heroes he’s assembling to stop him.

Despite the harsh statements, Ford is now officially a part of the MCU.
