Amidst all of the shutdowns and delays, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is ready to showcase its magic. Yes, the movie is ready for a release next year, so, get ready for a blockbuster. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is an upcoming American superhero film. It is based on the Marvel character Shang-Chi and is produced by Marvel Studios as well. Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, this will be the 25th movie on Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Destin Daniel Cretton is directing the movie, whereas David Callaham is serving as the screenwright.
The idea for developing a Shang-Chi film was first birthed in 2001, meaning almost 20 years ago. However, the actual work on the movie began in 2018 after the hiring of Callaham for the project. Shang-Chi can be a cultural reset in the MCU as the movie is majorly led by an Asian cast. Earlier, Black Panther, another MCU movie did wonders with an all-Black cast, and we expect the same from the new project.
So, let’s go ahead and get to know more about the new MCU movie. From release date to cast, you will get all your answers down below.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings began production in February 2020. And, soon it was put to a halt. As we all know, the production was shut down due to the ongoing coronavirus, just like other projects. However, at the end of July 2020, the filming resumed and after working for three months, it concluded in October. The filming took place in parts of Australia and San Francisco.
So, as the filming is finally over, there are still some touch-ups left and also the post-production. But, we don’t have to wait anymore to know when it will premiere. The release date for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is announced. It will be releasing on 11th July 2021, as a part of MCU phase four.
Furthermore, the director of the movie, Destin Daniel Cretton also posted a post online captioning it, ‘WE ARE WRAPPED.’ The excitement was clearly visible on his face and other team members.
The film is filled with some of the most acclaimed artists. Simu Liu will be playing the brave Shang- Chi, A skilled martial artist. Joining him is Tony Leung (In The Mood For Love, Lust caution) playing the mandarin. Mandarin is teh leader of the Ten Rings terrorist organization. In the movie, mandarin replaces Shang-Chi’s father’s character Fu Manchu; who is considered to be the problematic character in the comics. Apparently, Marvel Studios does not have rights to that character.
Also, stars like Awkwafina (Crazy Rich Asians, Oceans 8), Michelle Yeoh (Crazy Rich Asians, Star Trek Discovery), and Ronny Chieng (Crazy Rich Asians) have been cast in the movie. However, their roles are disclosed at the moment.
