Not Thanos, The Covid-19 is Haunting MCU’s Shang-Chi

End Game for Shang-Chi ??

Marvel is digging deeper into its catalog for its Phase 4 by adding this film too.

Marvel has suspended the production of their latest prospect, “Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings,” due to “Covid-19”, a virus that now needs no introduction. It has been a concerning phase not only Marvel but also for many other cinematic firms like Walt Disney, etc. For Marvel’s Shang-Chi, the leading photography house currently set up in Australia has been brought down. The director of the film, Destin Daniel Cretton, has gone through his doctor’s endorsement to self-isolate while shooting the film in Australia. Mr. Cretton has decided to undergo a test for the mighty disease of “Covid-19” as a precautionary measure.

The Mantra of Prevention is Better than Cure

The director of the film was open about the fact that health comes first and precautionary measures should be undertaken by all the fraternities.

The director, Destin, was recently blessed with a boy, and he wanted to exercise additional caution given the current environment. Having a newborn child could also be a definite factor that regularly helped his decision to be tested as a precaution or safety measure. As of now, the second unit production of Shang-Chi has been given an indefinite pause along with the off-unit production. The first set of creation was completed successfully with the photography completed earlier. The director, however, is in no rush for resuming his duties until he gets the results of the “Covid-19” this coming week, confirm sources. As this disease is declared as a pandemic by “WHO,” it is better for cinematic firms to set films at a pause.

Covid-19 Still a Cause of Concern

The film will be going to hit the theaters on Feb. 12, 2021.

Shang-Chi stars Simu Liu, Tony Leung, and Awkwafina in the lead roles. Not to anyone’s surprise, there might be a delay because of the ‘Covid-19‘. The film joins many other films to have their release dates delayed due to the spread of the coronavirus. Coronavirus has infected approximately 120,000 people worldwide and has resulted in more than 4,000 deaths until now. We can hope in unison that the virus doesn’t spread anymore, and no one is victimized.
