Simu Liu was all set to reprise the role of Shang-Chi in the film’s sequel, but then director Destin Daniel Cretton was tapped up to move across to Avengers: The Kang Dynasty after Spider-Man helmer Jon Watts pulled out. This seemed to leave Shang-Chi 2 up in the air.
Now it seems Liu might return to the role even sooner than that. In an interview with People, Liu teased a team-up opportunity that he seemed to say will feature his character, and others, before either a new Avengers movie or a Shang-Chi sequel.
“I’m such a big fan of both the characters and the performers that play them, so any collaboration is an opportunity for me to work alongside someone who, in their own way, is breaking barriers and at the very top of their game.
I think that’s what excites me the most as a performer, [and] also as a fan… who knows, they [the fans] might see something sooner than you think. We’ll see.”
It could be Captain America: New World Order. That has set its production schedule and is due to start filming in just three weeks.
According to Margaret Loesch, former president and CEO of Marvel Productions, Stan Lee discussed a potential film or television series based on the Marvel Comics character Shang-Chi with actor Brandon Lee and his mother Linda Lee during the 1980s, with the intention of having Brandon Lee star as the character.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings grossed $224.5 million in the United States and Canada, and $207.7 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $432.2 million, the most money ever earned by a film opening on Labor Day weekend.
