It would be an understatement to say that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was a huge hit once it ended. The 25th installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was well received by critics and audiences alike, scoring 91% on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of writing) and grossing hundreds of millions at the box office.
Shang-Chi, starring Simu Liu, is a martial arts epic that travels the world and combines the awe of fantasy films with the white-knuckle thrills of the best action flicks. Many have been wondering when they will get another dose of Marvel’s master of martial arts after all this success and the Shang-Chi conclusion.
Yet, since this is the MCU, we won’t be saying goodbye to Shang-Chi and Katy anytime soon (Awkwafina). To bring you the most up-to-current information about the release date of Shang-Chi 2, we have scoured the web, spoken with the film’s cast, and even risked the wrath of Wong by reading banned tomes in the library of Kamar-Taj.
Shang-Chi 2 Release Date
According to Thedigitalfix, Although no release date has been set, Shang-Chi 2 was officially announced in December 2021. The release of Shang-Chi 2 will have to wait, as Marvel Studio has already planned out its Phase 4 films.
Though he is the sole director officially committed to the project as of April 2022, Destin Daniel Cretton is returning to write and direct. We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we have any news for you.

While at the premiere of No Way Home, Simu Liu discussed the making of the film. It’s great to hear the motor running again,” he told Comicbook.com. With the opportunity to explore further tales, the writers are excited to delve further into the characters and deliver additional action-packed set pieces.
As Cretton is currently producing Avengers 5, we probably won’t get to see Shang-next Chi’s solo outing until at least 2025.
Shang-Chi 2 Plotline: What Can We Expect?
The dramatic conclusion and fascinating post-credit scenes of Shang-Chi leave Marvel Studios with a wide range of options for the sequel.
If we had to guess, we’d say the plot revolves around Xialing, Shang-sister Chi (played by Meng’er Zhang). Xialing’s brother is not going to be happy that she has co-opted the Ten Rings for her sinister aims, considering that she was supposed to be shutting down her father’s wicked terrorist organization.
Since this is a Marvel film, it’s safe to assume that Shang-Chi will be mobilized the next time the planet Earth is menaced by an extraterrestrial purple guy with a death wish and a fancy glove. Katy might end up joining Shang-Chi and the Avengers, for all we know. Awkafina said that it would be “great” if that occurred, but she couldn’t confirm it.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is one individual who is already planning for Shang-next Chi’s movie. That gives me great hope that people will want to see more of these characters after seeing their initial reactions to [Shang-Chi] and the characters themselves.
Where to take them and store them is something we’ve thought about a lot. What’s great is that when questions are asked about the movie’s cast members other than the lead, we know we’ve got a winner.
Shang-Chi 2 Cast Members: Who Are in It?
Although their participation in Shang-Chi 2 has not been confirmed, considering the importance placed on their friendship at the film’s conclusion, both Simu Liu and Awkwafina seem like safe bets. If we anticipate the return of the Ten Rings, we can safely assume that their new leader, Xialing, will also be returned.
If Xialing has returned, then her henchman and muscle, Razorfist (Florian Munteanu), stands a decent possibility of doing so as well. The addition of Michelle Yeoh to the next picture would be welcome, but at this moment, a return to Ta Lo looks highly improbable.

Only Wenwu (Tony Leung), who unfortunately perished but also completed his story arc by the conclusion of the film, is not expected to return. Even though we’re aware of the possibility of flashbacks, we don’t see any value in bringing him back at this time.
Cretton has said that martial arts icon Jackie Chan would make an excellent lead in the film. For example, he told Cinemablend, “I mean, if we could ever get Jackie [Chan] into a movie, it would be a lifelong goal of mine.”
