Marvel Studios is Working on a ‘Shang-Chi’ Sequel with Returning Director Destin Daniel Cretton. There is no denying that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has been a massive success for the studio, and unsurprisingly, Marvel Studios is already working on a sequel and a Disney+ live-action series!
Even though no announcements were made about the sequel at SDCC, it’s looking very likely that we will learn more information at next month’s D23. Especially since Marvel has previously confirmed that a sequel will be made. While this hasn’t been officially unveiled, the title that’s circulating in the rumor mill is Shang-Chi and the Wreckage of Time.
Previously, Marvel Studios President and CCO Kevin Feige has shared that Marvel Studios is developing a sequel to the hit new film, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Destin Daniel Cretton will return to write and direct for the studio. The film was an instant hit during its theatrical run this year and the studio is eager to dive deeper into the lore and characters! Reportedly, Marvel Studios is looking to begin filming for Shang-Chi 2 in 2023.
The Shang-Chi sequel will likely join Phase 5 of the MCU. It is currently unknown who would return for a second Shang-Chi film, but we fully expect the return of Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, Awkwafina as Katy, and Meng’er Zhang as Xialing.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is now available to stream via Disney+ and for sale on DVD, Digital, 4K Ultra-HD, and Blu-ray. This is a developing story, so be sure to check back here at Chip and Company for updates and all things Marvel!
