‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings‘ May Resume Filming Very Soon. Marvel Fans have been waiting to hear news about the future of the MCU and when filming will resume for several big name projects currently on hiatus after the shutdown of studios due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Well Marvel fanatics, looks like filming will resume very soon!
One of the rumored cast members for the Shang-Chi film potentially leaked the restart of filming in Australia with a photo on Instagram and the caption, “Guess who’s back. Quarantine look after 10 weeks of isolating myself. Hope y’all are safe, time to get back to normal.”
“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Shang-Chi. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is intended to be the 26th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
Producer Roy Lee shared there is relief at Marvel Studios regarding production concerns after it was learned a vaccine for COVID-19 would not be required in order for filming to resume.
“Initially, when the shutdowns began, I feared that we would have to wait for a vaccine to be developed before any production would be back up and running. But now I’m optimistic that there will be a plan in place to allow for smaller-scale productions to start before a vaccine is developed,” Lee speculated. “I believe that it will be one of the first studio productions that will start once we figure out the proper protocols that will ensure that the cast and crew are as safe, if not more, during production than they would have been pre-pandemic.”
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is expected to hit theaters on May 7, 2021.
