Marvel's Shang-Chi Resumes Production

Marvel has resumed production on Shang-Chi after months of delay due to fears surrounding the coronavirus which shut down filming worldwide.

Australia's 7 News Sydney announced the restart of production as the news network posted set images and video on social media of crews building new sets.

"It's not Asia and it's not Hollywood; it is Western Sydney, home to the newest addition of the @Marvel movie franchise. The 7NEWS chopper captured these scenes today as work resumed building the set for the upcoming production, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings."

As the dates of two tweets note, it's been near five months since Shang-Chi stopped filming, which reportedly at the time cost Disney Marvel $250,000 a day before the full stoppage on filming.

While no actors have been spotted as of yet, posts on Instagram confirm filming is going to start at any moment.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has a May 7, 2021 release date and is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and stars Simu Liu as the titular character, Tony Chiu-Wai Leung as The Mandarin, Fala Chen as Leiko Wu, and Awkwafina in an unknown role.
