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!
A rumor from the r/MarvelStudiosSpoilers Reddit page noted that Marvel Studios is eyeing a February 14, 2025 release date for the sequel to Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. It would fill in the release date set aside for an ‘Untitled Marvel’ movie on Disney’s current theatrical schedule. Also, it would be a great chance to explore more territories with the characters prior to the 2025 Avengers movie.
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!
