Liv Tyler spotted on Captain America 4 set 15 years after Marvel debut

Liv Tyler starred in the 2008 film “The Incredible Hulk” as Betty Ross, the love interest of the titular character. The film is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and stars Edward Norton as Bruce Banner/The Hulk.

Liv Tyler’s character, Betty Ross, is a scientist and former girlfriend of Bruce Banner. She becomes involved in the story when she reunites with Bruce, who has been on the run from the military and trying to find a cure for his Hulk condition. Betty helps Bruce in his quest while also dealing with her own complicated relationship with her father, who is a military general determined to capture the Hulk.

Liv Tyler’s performance in the film was generally well-received, and she brought a sense of warmth and vulnerability to the character of Betty Ross. The film itself received mixed reviews, but it did perform well at the box office and helped to establish the Hulk as a key character in the marvel films.

Earlie this week Liv Tyler was photographed on the set of Captain America: New World Order in Atlanta (Monday), and the 45 year-old actress was shooting in a cemetery and wore all black. Liv’s hair was swept from her face and she was also holding a black handbag while surrounded by crew.

The photos were taken hours after it was confirmed that Liv would be reprising her Incredible Hulk role, 15 years after starring in the Marvel blockbuster.

In Captain America 4 – or New World Order, as it’s officially known – Liv will once again play scientist Betty Ross. In The Incredible Hulk, Betty was the daughter of General Thaddeus ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross, formerly played by the late William Hurt, who died last year.

Hurt’s role will be played by Harrison Ford in the new Marvel movie. Alongside Liv, The Incredible Hulk starred Edward Norton in the titular role and the flick was released in 2008.

Edward, 53, was replaced by Mark Ruffalo as Bruce in 2012’s The Avengers. Liv’s role reprisal was confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter on Monday and this time around she’ll star opposite Anthony Mackie, who’s taken up the mantle of Captain America.

Captain America: New World Order is set to be released on May 3, 2024, with The Cloverfield Paradox director Julius Onah helming the project.

At last year’s San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige provided a detailed look ahead at MCU’s Phase Five, as well as what’s to come in Phase Six.

Phase Five will feature titles including Mahershala’s Blade film, the Captain Marvel sequel The Marvels, Loki season two, the new Daredevil series, What If…? season two, Echo, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, Secret Invasion, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Captain America: New World Order and Ironheart.
