After Sam Wilson finally took over the mantle of Captain America at the end of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, MCU fans are now looking forward to his upcoming first leading movie Captain America: New World Order. While the plot remains under wraps, some of the details that we've heard are exciting enough to keep us in anticipation.
Now, we have another exciting update on the project as it's been confirmed that production for Captain America: New World Order has finally started. Thanks to Just Jared, we now also have our first set photos from the movie where Anthony Mackie is seen shooting a scene in a diner.
The actor is in his Sam Wilson form as he was wearing a casual brown sweater and jeans while visiting Smyth's Diner, a location that has appeared in the Captain America comics. Based on the interior design, it looks like the scene is set somewhere in West Virginia.

While the photos did not reveal any spoilers except that a scene will take place in West Virginia, it is exciting nonetheless to get our first peek from the film since it is a definitive confirmation that work is already underway for one of the most anticipated upcoming MCU films and we may see more of this in the coming weeks.
Aside from New World Order, production for the MCU series Daredevil: Born Again and Agatha: Coven of Chaos are also currently underway. Thunderbolts, Deadpool 3, and Blade are also expected to begin production very soon.
The cast also includes Harrison Ford, Danny Ramirez, Carl Lumbly, Tim Blake Nelson, Shira Haas, and Xosha Roquemore. Julius Onah directs the film while Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson are writing the screenplay.
