Though the continued coronavirus pandemic has slowed Hollywood to a digital standstill, there’s nonetheless been a gentle stream of bulletins, reveals, and rumors making their option to the web. As we’ve already seen, among the business’s largest initiatives have been derailed or delayed (together with all of Marvel’s Section four movies), however we not too long ago caught wind of a brand new growth surrounding probably the most anticipated MCU films.
As seen down beneath, a brand new video filmed on the set of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings reveals the titular hero himself (performed by Chinese language-Canadian actor Simu Liu) together with actress Awkwafina (whose function has but to be revealed) arriving by cab to a fairly seedy-looking space of an Asian metropolis or district. Usually, this type of establishing shot isn’t all that attention-grabbing, however some intrepid followers have observed the 2 characters stroll by a wall which has the yr 2020 graffitied on it.

Clearly, this might merely be a coincidence (filming solely started just a few months in the past, in any case), however some have instructed the graffiti could be a purposeful inclusion and will imply Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings takes place within the yr 2020. If that’s the case, this may be the primary film set in the course of the aftermath of Thanos’ devastating and universe-shattering snap, earlier than the Avengers had been in a position to undo the injury as seen in Endgame.
If this concept seems to be true, it might definitely make sense seeing as how Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings pits the newfound hero in opposition to the lethal terrorist group. In spite of everything, with the world left decimated following the occasions of Infinity Warfare, it is sensible that the Ten Rings would stand up and set up extra of a presence on the worldwide stage.
After all, we’ll have to attend some time to seek out out if so (provided that the movie has been delayed till May of subsequent yr), however we’ll make sure to replace you on any information or data that comes down the pipeline within the meantime.
