Both “Avengers: Infinity War” and the still untitled fourth “Avengers” film were effectively finished filming by the time “Black Panther” hit screens back in February.
That film’s massive success, which went beyond even Marvel’s wildest expectations, probably had the studio breathing a sigh of relief considering how much of the third act of ‘Infinity War’ was set in the fictional country of Wakanda – home of the Black Panther.
Now a new report from Atlanta Filming, which deals with projects shot in the Georgian city including many Marvel films, says the upcoming additional photography on the film suggests we’ll see a bunch more action involving the world of and characters from “Black Panther” in this film than we did in the last one according to the official casting & filming documentation they’ve received:
“Based on the locations and the casting it looks like #Avengers4 will have a whole lot more #BlackPanther in it than #AvengersInfinityWar. So that’s less a reshoot and more an addition of goodness.”
Directors Joe and Anthony Russo have indicated the new film will be in post-production through to March, with some quite standard additional photography soon to get underway – though it isn’t expected to be much. The inclusion of some extra scenes either in Wakanda or involving surviving characters like Okoye and Shuri is a smart move.
The only other person who has been talking about the reshoots lately has been actor Dave Bautista who has previously said he has a few days of additional filming to do for the next “Avengers”. Whether it will be the last time we see him as Drax isn’t clear.
The fourth “Avengers” opens in May next year.
