Eager Marvel Studios fan have been waiting for an update on the development of the upcoming Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings movie. The movie’s release was pushed back due to COVID-19 shutting down the film production earlier this year. The superhero movie is currently set to premiere in theaters on May 7, 2021, but the studio needs to wrap-up filming within the next few months to avoid any further delay.
A new report indicates that filming may resume in late July. Marvel Studios is hoping to continue filming in Australia later this month. The cast and crew of Shang-Chi are expected to self-quarantine for two weeks upon arriving in Australia. They are being cautious by taking “baby steps” to ensure the health and safety of all those involved in production. Also, Shang-Chi is the second movie from Walt Disney Studios that is returning to film production following 20th Century Studios’ Avatar 2 which resumed production last month in New Zealand.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is an America superhero film based upon the Marvel Comics character of the same name. 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.
