All cast and crew are believed to have arrived at the Australia set ahead of filming
In March, production of Marvel’s first Asian superhero film was halted due to the pandemic. Director Destin Daniel Cretton entered self-isolation and the decision to temporarily shut down production cost the studio up to $350,000 per day.
Video footage of the set in Australia has surfaced online with 7 News Sydney stating that all cast and crew from overseas have completed their 14-day quarantine requirements. Filming will commence in the coming days.
Staying true to the comics, Shang-Chi will feature Chinese martial arts but Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said the film will be “so much more than a Kung Fu movie.”
Liu himself said the film “could change the world”.
