Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has confirmed that production on Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings will begin soon.
Included in Kevin Feige’s plans for the fourth phase of the Marvel Studios cinematic universe is the feature film titled Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings. Based on the eponymous hero from the comics, Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings will mark the first Marvel Studios film to feature an Asian superhero in the lead role.
During a conversation between the New York Film Academy, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige discussed the future of the MCU and the topic of Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings was raised. While Kevin Feige did not reveal a precise date, the Marvel Studios president did confirm Shang-Chi & The Legend of the Ten Rings will start filming in just a few months:
“I went to my then assistant Jonathan Schwartz, who is now in Australia producing Shang-Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings that goes into production in a few months.”
Of course, many fans are expecting Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings to incorporate elements of kung-fu films. However, Kevin Feige confirmed the Marvel film will feature kung-fu movie elements but added it will be so much more as well:
“Shang-Chi is going to be so much more than a kung-fu movie, but it has elements of that which we’re excited about.”

Introduced in Special Marvel Edition #15 in December 1973, Shang-Chi is a skilled martial artist who was raised in an isolated compound located in China and trained by his father Fu Manchu, a Chinese crimelord and immortal sorcerer who repeatedly attempted to conquer the world. When Shang-Chi was finally allowed to venture into the outside world to do his father’s bidding, he learned about his father’s evil ways and faked his own death before embarking on a mission to take down Fu Manchu’s criminal empire.
Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton from a script written by David Callaham, Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings stars Simu Liu, Awkwafina and Tony Leung.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be released in theaters on February 12, 2021.
