Shang-Chi was a solid hit for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, delivering that unique blend of MCU humor and spectacular, original fight choreography you’d expect when portraying the universe’s most famous martial artist.
Shang-Chi, as played by the charismatic Simu Liu, captivated audiences and kept fans excited for what’s next for the character in his bright future as an MCU star. Continue reading for our coverage of Shang-Chi 2, including its release date, cast, and everything else we know!

There is no word on the release of the sequel to the film Shang Chi 2 and The Legend of The Ten Rings because filming has not yet begun, so we cannot expect an early release. According to the authorities, filming will begin in late 2022, so we can expect Shang Chi 2 to be released in 2024.
Shang-Chi 2 Expected Cast
While nothing has been confirmed, both Simu Liu and Awkwafina appear to be in Shang-Chi 2, especially given their friendship’s prominence at the end of the action film. We know the Ten Rings will return, which means their new boss Xialing will most likely join them.
If Xialing returns, her lieutenant and muscle Razorfist (Florian Munteanu) have a good chance of doing so as well. It would also be nice to see more of Michelle Yeoh in the next film, but a return to Ta Lo seems unlikely at this point.
The only member of the main cast who is unlikely to return is Wenwu (Tony Leung), partly because he died and partly because his arc was completed by the end of the film. Yes, we are aware of flashbacks, but we don’t see the point in bringing him back at this time.
Shang-Chi 2 Expected Plot
The plot of Shang-Chi 2 is the greatest unknown. It’s no longer common for Marvel to plan direct sequels; instead, one film may lead to a television series, and vice versa. The events of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings may not be referenced in Shang-Chi 2. However, Ta-Lo and the history of Shang-secret Chi’s realm should be given more screen time in Shang-Chi 2 than they already are.
Many questions remain unsolved, and his character’s development would benefit greatly from his discovering his full range of abilities, not simply those derived from the Ten Rings. According to this film’s post-credits sequence, Shang-Chi may return to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness before making a complete comeback in Shang-Chi 2.

Are the 10 rings from the Eternals?
After all, the Ten Rings, like much of the Eternals’ technology, are circular in shape. They also appear to be energy-based in their use, similar to how the Eternals’ tools and weapons are powered by cosmic energy.
Was Shang-Chi an avenger?
Shang-Chi joins the Avengers after being recruited by Captain America and Iron Man during the Marvel NOW! relaunch. Shang-Chi and the Avengers join the Galactic Council during the events of Infinity to fight the Builders and their crusade against all life in the universe.
Will there be Shang-Chi 2?
