Before the pandemic, many Marvel projects got productions going and some were about to wrap up filming. Unfortunately for Shang-Chi, filming had barely begun before Marvel shut it down.
Today, leaked set footage from Shang-Chi popped up on twitter and it features a night time scene with Awkwafina and Simu Liu. There’s no further information given, however, this is something to get us through this long movie drought.
Check out the footage below.
