'Shang-Chi' Movie Finds Its Director

Destin Daniel Cretton

But the earlier report did say Shang-Chi was being "fast-tracked" so we might have more in a few months.

Short Term 12 director Destin Daniel Cretton has signed on for MarvelStudios' Shang-Chi, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The movie also featured future Captain Marvel star, Brie Larson.

Initially created during the martial arts cinema craze of the 1970s, Shang-Chi is now positioned as a milestone character for Marvel's ever-expanding cinematic universe. His father is the villain Fu Manchu, with his mother, a white American woman who was genetically selected by his father.

'The Disappearance Of Madeleine McCann' Will Hit Netflix Tomorrow
The Netflix series promises new interviews with people connected to the case, with input from more than 40 contributors in all. Madeleine McCann is still alive and being held captive by child traffickers claims a controversial new Netflix documentary.

Introduced in Special Marvel Edition #15 in December 197, the script will reportedly modernize the source material in order to avoid the character stereotypes of the time. Since the latter film's success was largely credited to its African-American cast and crew and honoring of African traditions and customs, the studio is hoping to repeat that success by spotlighting Asian-Americans and their cultures. Share your thoughts below! It stars Larson, who collaborated with Cretton on 2013's "Short Term 12" and 2017's "The Glass Castle".

Shang-Chi appears to be another key player in the next phase of Marvel flicks following the events of Avengers: Endgame. Additionally, he is now directing Just Mercy, a biopic about Civil Rights attorney Bryan Stevenson starring Larson and Michael B. Jordan. Both Jordan and Larson have made an impact in recent Marvel Studios movies, Larson in the title role of the box office hit Captain Marvel and Jordan as Killmonger in last year's mega-blockbuster Black Panther.

Though it hasn't been officially announced (possibly because nearly nothing has been announced for Marvel's post-Phase Three universe), Marvel is reportedly developing a movie about Shang-Chi, the martial artist hero of its cult series Master of Kung Fu.
