Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will officially have a sequel, and with its same director, Destin Daniel Cretton, who is also preparing a series on Disney +.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has been one of the biggest hits at the post-pandemic box office , grossing $ 431 million worldwide. As with all Marvel movies, the post-credits scenes advance the sequels, and it stands to reason that Shang-Chi would return.
Now it is official: Variety confirms that Marvel Studios has already signed with Destin Daniel Cretton , director of the first, to rewrite and direct the sequel, “Shang-Chi 2“, which will obviously have another name. Of dates nothing is known yet.
But Marvel Studios is very happy with Daniel Cretton, because he has not only signed a sequel with him, he has also signed a multi-year contract, and in addition to the Shang-Chi sequel he will develop a Marvel series for Disney +.
Details of this Marvel series are not known, but according to Variety sources it is a comedy . It is logical to assume that it is a spin-off of the Shang-Chi universe.
Maybe a series with Awkwafina or the “other” Mandarin, the funniest characters in the movie? Or a series on the organization of the Ten Rings?
Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings premiered in September, and is available now on Disney + . Here you can read our review of a movie that stands out for its action and its stellar cast that includes Simu Liu, Michelle Yeoh, Awkwafina, Ben Kingsley and Tony Leung .
Liu, by the way, is one of the guests of the gala The Game Awards 2021 , which will take place this week, early morning from Thursday to Friday.
Shang-Chi will be one of the heroes protagonists of the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and surely we will see much more of him, like Kate Bishop . A deleted scene was recently revealed in which one of the characters died … but having been removed, it may still be available for the sequel.
