When is the Shang-Chi 2 movie going to be released? The event known as Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has come and gone, and it would be grossly inaccurate to say that its reception was anything less than resoundingly positive.
At the time of this writing, the score that the 25th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe received on Rotten Tomatoes was 92%, and it took in millions of dollars at the box office. Both of these statistics indicate that the film was a critical and financial success.
The action-adventure film, which stars Simu Liu as the title character Shang-Chi and takes place all over the world, is a martial arts masterpiece that combines the awe-inspiring spectacle of fantasy films with the white-knuckle thrills of the very best action films.
Because of all this success and the way the Shang-Chi storyline concluded, people are naturally curious about when they will get another chance to see Marvel’s master of martial arts.
Given that this takes place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we should not expect this to be our final encounter with Shang-Chi or his childhood friend and fellow archer Katy (Awkwafina).
In order to bring you the most up-to-date information on the Shang-Chi sequel, we have searched the internet, combed through the forbidden tomes in the library of Kamar-Taj, and even contacted members of the film’s cast in order to bring you everything we know about the Shang-Chi 2 release date. The film is scheduled to be released in 2018.
Shang Chi 2 Release Date
In December 2021, it was announced that Shang-Chi 2 would be made, but there is no release date set as of yet. Since Marvel Studio has already mapped out the movies that will be produced during its Phase 4 slate, we are aware that we will not be receiving Shang-Chi 2 for at least a few more years.
The production company has been gradually announcing more films, which we presume to be a part of Phase 5, such as Anthony Mackie’s film adaptation of Captain America and Deadpool 3.
While attending the premiere of No Way Home, Simu Liu discussed the making of the film and provided a few details about its production. In an interview with Comicbook.com, he said, “It’s just so good to feel the engine turning again.”
“We get to tell more stories again,” as well as delve deeper into the characters and provide more of those badass fight sequences. “We get to tell more stories again.”
Shang Chi 2 Plot
If we were compelled to tell the story, we imagine it would focus on Shang-sister Chi’s Xialing (Meng’er Zhang), as she is the main character.
Xialing was tasked with dismantling the terrorist organization that was founded by her father; however, it appears that she has instead appropriated the Ten Rings for her own nefarious purposes, which is something that her brother is unlikely to find acceptable.
Since it’s a Marvel movie, we can probably guess that Shang-Chi will be called to assemble the next time the Earth is threatened by some intergalactic purple guy with a death wish and a fancy glove.
Shang-Chi has been known to respond quickly and effectively to crises in the past. Who knows, maybe Katy will follow in Shang-footsteps Chi’s and become a member of the Avengers. Awkafina expressed to us that she believed it would be “cool” if that occurred, despite the fact that she was unable to confirm anything.
Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, is one of the individuals who is already considering Shang-subsequent Chi’s adventure. He shared his thoughts on the matter with Comicbook.com, saying that “the early reactions to the characters and to [Shang-Chi] itself gives me great hope that people will want to see more of these characters.”
“We most definitely have a lot of ideas regarding where to take them and where to put them,” the speaker said. What’s so much fun is that when we know the movie is doing well, it’s not just the main character that people want to know more about; rather, they want to know more about the co-stars or the supporting players.
Shang Chi 2 Cast
Since Cretton will be directing the sequel once again, it is likely that the majority of the cast from the first movie will also appear in the sequel. It is impossible to make a movie without Simu Liu; the name of the Chinese-Canadian actor has become synonymous with that of Marvel’s first Asian American superhero.
If his contract is anything like the ones Marvel makes with the majority of its leads, he will most likely continue to play the role in at least five more films to come, including two films that are direct sequels and three films that are crossovers.
Also, it is likely that Awkwafina will reprise her role as Katy, and Meng’er Zhang will continue in her role as Xialing. Zhang is a newcomer, and her Marvel star is only just beginning to ascend at this point, in contrast to Awkwafina, who was already an established major star before she was cast in the films.
Fans will just have to wait and see who else might be appearing in the movie because neither Marvel nor Disney has confirmed anyone’s participation as of yet. Xialing’s aunt could be played by Michelle Yeoh, Benedict Wong could play Wong, Florian Munteanu could play Razor Fist, and Ronny Chieng could play Jon Jon. These are just some of the possibilities.
Shang Chi 2 Trailer
There is currently no trailer available because production has not yet begun. But! Fans are able to watch some of the scenes that were cut from the first movie because of time constraints, and these scenes arrived alongside the film’s premiere on Disney+ on November 12.
