Captain America: New World Order is eyeing a May 2024 release, but an exciting new update revealed when the MCU movie will begin filming. 

News about Captain America 4's production slowed down after its working title, "Rochelle Rochelle," was unveiled last October 2022. 

Since then, the confirmation of Harrison Ford's involvement as Thunderbolt Ross and a rumored Wolverine connection in the movie has made headlines for the upcoming MCU flick. 

As MCU fans welcome the new year, a clearer production window for Captain America 4 has emerged.

Captain America 4 Start Date Confirmed

As previously shared by Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC), production for Captain America: New World is expected to span March 20 through June 30 of this year.

The Cosmic Circus' Lizzie Hill corroborated AJC's report, revealing that Captain America 4's start date is Monday, March 20.

However, reliable scooper Daniel Richtman noted that shooting would be underway by Monday, March 27.  

Hill then addressed the March 27 start date, saying that it is "entirely possible" that this is the case due to a script rewrite that came in "earlier this month:"

"So now [Daniel Richtman] is saying March 27th according to this. I haven't heard an(other) update from my sources yet but it is entirely possible it was pushed a little from the 20th. I'd heard a rewrite came in earlier this month, so that would make sense."

This supports previous rumors and reports that cameras would begin rolling in March on this anticipated Phase 5 film.

Will Marvel Delay Captain America 4?

The March start date for Captain America: New World Order means it will have a year and two months to finish production and post-production before its expected May 2024 premiere. If this had happened during the height of the pandemic, then fans would expect the movie to be delayed

However, since COVID restrictions are slowly being lifted, production for big-budget movies like Captain America 4 will not be long anymore, and this production timeline would fit the desired window from Marvel Studios. 

Moreover, a shorter production timeframe is ideal because Captain America 4 is a much more grounded movie than the rest of the MCU movies. 

In comparison, Black Widow began filming for six months from May 2019 to October 2019. The film's original release date was May 2020, meaning it was on schedule. 

That said, it's safe to assume that Marvel Studios will not delay Captain America 4 despite a March start date, thus easing the worries of fans.

Captain America 4 arrives in theaters on May 3, 2024.
