The Shang Chi movie debuted in theaters, and many are wondering if there will also be a sequel that can see Simu Liu again as the Marvel superheroine. Although there is no official news about it yet, let’s try to understand if the film will have a sequel. Will a possible Shang-Chi 2 ever see the light? Will the story about the Legend of the Ten Rings continue?
Shang-Chi 2: Are There Any Official Statements?
In an interview with Comicbook, Kevin Feige talked about the fact that a sequel to Shang-Chi is already on the mind of Marvel Studios. The company’s head spoke about the characters’ future in this film, explaining that he hopes that viewers will enjoy the story enough to allow him to make a Shang-Chi 2.
“Early reactions to the film have hinted that people will want to see more of these characters. We certainly have many ideas on where to take them and put them. We know when a movie works when it’s not just the title character that people are asking for, but the co-stars or the supporting actors. And in this particular film, it’s encouraging because we think they are spectacular and have great potential in the future.”
Director Destin Daniel Cretton further explained that some scenes didn’t have a place in Shang-Chi and Legend of the Ten Rings, but that may have in the future.
“There was a setting that we weren’t able to do in this movie, but I’m not going to say what it is because I hope we can do it again in another movie.”
As for Shang-Chi’s future, it looks like the Marvel Cinematic Universe will lead to a collision with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. However, it has not been confirmed where we will be able to review these characters and if there will be Shang-Chi 2.
Shang-Chi 2: When Will It Release?
Despite having official news on the sequel to the film on the new Marvel hero, it is impossible to predict when Shang-Chi 2 will release. If the production definitively confirms the making of another film on the adventures of Shang-Chi, then we will probably also find out the release date. However, it is still too early to know anything about it, but we will update you in case we have more news.
Moreover, we don’t have major revelations about the plot of the potential second film. However, it is confirmed that Shang-Chi will play a crucial role in Marvel Phase 4.
