She-Hulk & Moon Knight start filming ‘in a few weeks’
In a recent interview with The Companion, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed a new production update for two of Disney+’s highly-anticipated MCU shows, She-Hulk and Moon Knight. Feige confirmed that both shows are scheduled to begin filming soon, with She-Hulk going into production first and will then be followed by the production start of Moon Knight after a week.
“On March 19, as you know ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ will be debuting,” Feige said on the MCU schedule for the Disney+ shows. “June 11 will be the debut date for ‘Loki’ and, of course, soon after that, we’ll have our first animated series, which is ‘What If …?.’ We are finishing up ‘Ms. Marvel,’ and we’re also shooting ‘Hawkeye’ currently. In a few weeks, we start ‘She-Hulk,’ and a week or so after that, we start ‘Moon Knight’ in addition to our features.”
The working title for the Tatiana Maslany-led MCU series has also been revealed. According to Production Weekly, the She-Hulk project will be using two titles, “Clover” and “Libra,” throughout its upcoming filming in Atlanta.
She-Hulk and Moon Knight were officially announced by Feige last 2019 along with Ms. Marvel which is currently in production. This marks the iconic superheroes’ live-action debuts, who are also expected to be featured in future MCU films.
