Julia Louis-Dreyfus is filming something for Marvel in Atlanta right now. Louis-Dreyfus’ make-up artist Karen Kawahara, who has worked with her on many projects posted the below to Instagram. It is confirmed to be something for Marvel, and filmed in Atlanta. Many outlets have presented this as evidence that Louis-Dreyfus is in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. However, Wakanda Forever is currently on location in Cambridge shooting scenes in and around MIT. That does not rule out this being for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, as the film is apparently doing work in Atlanta also. However it does not mean it is definitely Wakanda Forever either. This could easily be reshoots for another project such as Hawkeye (reshoots currently filming in Atlanta), or really anything else Marvel is in the process of making.

It kinda looks like Louis-Dreyfus in the background but that is not 100% clear. Though, I personally think this looks like Louis-Dreyfus. It would however, be naïve to think this is all merely coincidence, and that doesn’t mean Louis-Dreyfus filming something for Marvel in Atlanta.
Thematically it would make a lot of sense for Val to show up in Hawkeye after the character sent Yelena after him at the end of Black Widow. I doubt Yelena will follow through on that mission, so perhaps Val will take a hand in it herself? For some reason, Val seems to want Clint Barton dead. Though, why Val wants Barton dead, is a question I cannot answer until we know more?
Where do you think Val will show up next? Would it make sense for Louis-Dreyfus to be in Wakanda Forever, or not? As always, leave any thoughts you have below in the usual place.
