A new video from the set of Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings reveals the first look at Simu Liu & Awkwafina.
Production on Marvel Studio’s Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings began in February 2020 in Sydney, Australia. However, Marvel Studios was forced to suspend filming due to the coronavirus pandemic and the release date for the Simu Liu and Awkwafina film was subsequently pushed back from February 2021 to May of the same year.
Now, a new set video taken before the coronavirus shutdown revealed a behind-the-scenes look at a sequence from Marvel Studio’s Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings. In the video, it appears as though Simu Liu and Awkwafina are arriving at some sort of night club or corporate facility in China.
You can watch the video below.
