Reed’s tweet is a bit complicated, if you do not know the context. Nonetheless, think about that he makes a reference to the StageCraft know-how within the very first sentence, then makes use of the nickname for the film he is engaged on now: “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.” As for Pinewood Studios — it’s positioned in Iver Heath, throughout the county of Buckinghamshire, U.Okay., and it occurs to be the placement of ILM’s third everlasting StageCraft quantity (the primary and second are at Manhattan Seaside Studios, the place “The Mandalorian” was filmed; the fourth is in Australia’s Fox Studios and would be the website of the visible results work for “Thor: Love and Thunder” work).
The information is not in any respect shocking. With “The Mandalorian” crew members changing into acquainted with the know-how, then going off to hitch different tasks, phrase about The Quantity is spreading. This might clarify why Waititi, who directed the ultimate episode of the primary season of “The Mandalorian,” is utilizing it for “Thor: Love and Thunder,” for instance.
Again in September 2020, The Ronin was already speculating that “Quantumania” can be supported by StageCraft as properly, as Reed is one other director who has come to know in regards to the VFX advance by means of “The Mandalorian.” The publication additionally factors out that the approach requires fewer manufacturing crew members to be put in hurt’s means for set development whereas lowering the necessity for journey, that are each useful issues in a nonetheless COVID-19 cautious world.
We’re unsure if using StageCraft means no extra cool bodily areas in any respect — the earlier movie, “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” really featured the biggest set constructed for a MCU film, Hank Pym’s lab (in line with Reed on the Digital HD launch’s audio commentary, as reported by Comicbook.com). However the final line of Reed’s tweet additionally reveals that manufacturing is lastly starting on the film, which is nice information. The movie’s official launch date of February 17, 2023 appears awfully far off, and this makes us hopeful that there will not be any delays to push it again even additional.
