After introducing Anthony Mackie as the new Captain America, the upcoming movie faced major backlash and negative reception during early screening.

Recalling how he had previously predicted that Captain America 4 would have an elongated reshoot “almost like they were tearing out a good portion of the movie”, Jeff Sneider mentioned that it feels unlike the standard two weeks built in reshoots. Especially since Marvel brought in a new writer at this point, Sneider believes that he is going to make major changes.

Just like what happened with DC’s Justice League, when Zack Snyder stepped down following the untimely demise of his daughter, and Joss Whedon scrapped most of it; it seems Captain America 4 is facing the same fate. John Rocha implied that bringing in a new writer at this point in production feels like Marvel wanted to rewrite the scenes for they believed the initial version wasn’t working well.

Questioning Matthew Orton’s capabilities as a writer, especially since his Disney+ series Moon Knight didn’t exactly serve as the usual light-hearted Marvel show, John Rocha stated that whatever the studio is doing to fix Captain America 4, it doesn’t feel good.
