Marvel’s Shang-Chi to Resume Production Later this Month

It looks like Marvel is starting to resume the production of its upcoming film and television projects.

Like all of Hollywood, Marvel was forced to put a halt on the development of its many different projects to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. The COVID-19 pandemic stymied the entertainment industry.

Forcing everyone to stay at home, the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak effectively shut down cinemas, forcing studios to delay the release of highly anticipated blockbuster movies like Mulan, Black Widow, and Wonder Woman 1984. Studios were also forced to shut down their film and television productions in fear that cast and crew would catch the disease.

Now that the country is slowly reopening, Marvel is planning to resume the production of one of its most highly-anticipated films, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

According to a report by Heroic Hollywood,Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will continue with principal photography at the end of July, allowing the project to proceed as scheduled. Marvel is reportedly resuming the film's production in Sydney, Australia.

Of course, while there may still be a few concerns regarding the health risks production might pose on the cast and crew of the film, Marvel is taking careful steps in resuming work on the movie. Crew members that are going to arrive from outside of Australia are going to be placed in quarantine in an effort to follow the country's rules and regulations regarding the matter of COVID-19.

Once the cast and crew complete quarantine safely, then they'll be able to get back to work on Shang-Chi.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is set for release on May 7, 2021.
