This morning, it was first revealed by Charles Murphy that Captain Marvel 2 is going to be shooting in the United Kingdom. A bit of a shakeup after the last film was primarily shot in the United States taking advantage of the California tax credits.
We can also confirm the information is correct and that Marvel Studios film will indeed film in the UK.
Other MCU projects shooting across the pond include Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness at Longcross Studios, Ant-Man 3 (likely at Pinewood Studios UK) and the Disney+ series Moon Knight.
The sequel most likely would be heading to Pinewood Studios UK. The same facility recently used for Black Widow and Eternals.
Candyman director Nia DaCosta was recently hired to direct from a script penned by WandaVision writer Megan McDonnell. Megan’s series WandaVision will be introducing the adult version of Monica Rambeau and S.W.O.R.D., which are expected to be important elements of Captain Marvel 2.
Brie Larson is set to reprise the role of Carol Danvers with an assumption that Samuel L. Jackson, Teyonah Parris, and Ben Mendelsohn will have roles as well.
In post-COVID-19 Hollywood, it really isn’t easy to predict when the sequel will begin production as there are two other major Marvel Studios films expected to shoot there that haven’t started along with a Disney+ series, making the production space a little crowded when you have to factor in multiple studios are shooting films next year as well.
Moving from California to England is also a good idea when wildfires became an issue during the first installment and continue to be a statewide problem. Not to mention the large population of California makes it a prime target for a resurgence of new COVID-19 cases. The live-action Little Mermaid movie is shooting at Pinewood and their comfort resuming the production could be another reason why Disney wanted to move Captain Marvel 2 to a UK facility.
Disney has given Captain Marvel 2 a release date of July 8th, 2022 but remains to be seen if they’ll stick to it if they end up having scheduling issues.
