Shang-Chi director Destin Daniel Cretton says he “always has room for” Captain Marvel’s Brie Larson in his films.
Now that Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel has solidified her place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings director Destin Daniel Cretton said he’d happily have her involved in any of his films. However, he chose not to confirm whether Brie Larson would be appearing in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings as Captain Marvel. We know that during the events of Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel was off-world, protecting the galaxy after it was thrown into turmoil following the “Snap.” So she might not be around when Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings arrives in 2021.
When asked by MTV News at the Toronto International Film Festival if she could appear in Shang-Chi, he said “I mean, I think there’s always room for Brie. But I don’t know, we’ll see.” Even if Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel is too busy for Shang-Chi, it sounds like Destin Daniel Cretton will happily cast the actress in any of his films, especially since she’s already starred in three of his other projects — Short Term 12, The Glass Castle and Just Mercy. Watch the interview below.

Do you want to see Brie Larson show up as Captain Marvel in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings? Let us know in the comments.
In the comics, Shang-Chi is a skilled martial artist who was raised and trained by his father Fu Manchu, a Chinese crimelord and immortal sorcerer who repeatedly attempted to conquer the world, in an isolated compound located in China. When Shang-Chi was finally allowed to venture into the outside world in order to do Fu Manchu’s bidding, he learned about his father’s evil ways and faked his own death before embarking on a mission to take down the criminal empire.
Introduced in Special Marvel Edition #15 in December 197, Shang-Chi will reportedly modernize the source material in order to avoid the character stereotypes of the time. Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, the film will star Simu Liu, Awkwafina and Tony Leung.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings opens in theaters on February 12, 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news on the upcoming movie and Brie Larson’s future as Captain Marvel!
