Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers will make her long-awaited return to the big screen in her solo MCU sequel, The Marvels, in just under a year. This will mark Captain Marvel’s third appearance in Phase 4 alone after post-credits cameos in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Ms. Marvel, and her next solo outing is set to add something thrilling to the Multiverse Saga.
With filming for this sequel having started more than a year ago, Marvel Studios is still hard at work making sure that every aspect of the story is up to the usual MCU standard visually and in terms of storytelling. Those reshoots are coming into play, with new set photos taking fans to a location that’s all too familiar within the Marvel universe for filming.
Captain Marvel 2 Hits New York City
Twitter user @moonvaIkyrie shared new photos from Battery Park at the southern tip of Manhattan in New York City, where filming was taking place for Marvel Studios’ The Marvels. While it’s unclear what was being filmed here, the movie seems to be utilizing the New York City backdrop with the Statue of Liberty nearby.
New York City has remained a constant location for Marvel Studios, most recently seen in projects like Hawkeye, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Now, it makes its way into Captain Marvel’s second solo outing as the Cosmic Avenger’s story continues.
Her first movie was largely spent either in space or in sunny Los Angeles, California, although Carol did visit New York when she found the Avengers Compound at the end of her solo movie and in Avengers: Endgame. It appears that she’ll now find her way to the Big Apple for the first time in the MCU, although the reasoning behind this visit is unknown.
Perhaps this might be the site for a meeting between Carol and Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel after the post-credits scene from Vellani’s Disney+ show, although the Flerken inclusion raises other questions as well. No matter what the details turn out to be, New York continues to be one of Marvel’s go-to locations as the franchise looks to bring another film to the big screen.
The Marvels is currently filming and will release in theaters on July 28, 2023.
