Shang Chi 2 Reportedly to Begin Filming in 2025 With the Return of One Notable Character

Marvel Studios and Disney have quite a few projects lined up for development and production, despite the recent statements that they will lower the scope and output of their movies & shows due to somewhat undesirable results that their projects have gotten in the last several years. Still, there are quite a few projects that fans are certainly looking forward to and one of them is the sequel to ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings.’

By December 2021, development had started on a sequel to ‘Shang-Chi’ with director and writer Cretton and star Liu expected to return. Liu expressed interest in exploring his character’s journey with the Ten Rings and his place in the MCU. However, by July 2023, Liu was uncertain about the sequel’s production timeline, mentioning it was slated for release after ‘Avengers: The Kang Dynasty,’ which had been postponed to 2026 from 2025. He expected that more details would emerge soon. Now according to notable leaker and scooper Daniel Richtman, the movie has received one massive development update: it’s set to begin filming as early as 2025 with a focus on time travel, and the best part – the movie is rumored to feature Iron Fist.

Recently we’ve already reported that the Iron Fist project was in development with a focus on a female-led story, however, we are unsure whether this is the same project or whether Iron Fist will surprisingly be a bigger part of the MCU going forward, at this point nothing would surprise us.

Now if Marvel Studios is definitely changing direction when it comes to releasing content ‘Shang-Chi 2’ is certainly a good strategy since the movie yielded good results the first time around. There’s also that detail with the timeline, ‘Shang-Chi 2’ was supposed to be released after ‘Avengers 5’, and with that movie being delayed to 2026, ‘Shang-Chi 2’ has plenty of time to make the cut.
