Marvel’s “Shang-Chi” Resumes Filming with Michelle Yeoh
Marvel’s first Asian-centric superhero film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has resumed filming in Sydney, Australia.
Starring Simu Liu (劉思慕), Tony Leung Chiu Wai (梁朝偉), and Awkwafina, the film is an adaptation of the Shang-Chi comics, which centers on the titular skilled martial artist, portrayed by Simu Liu. Tony stars as the Mandarin, leader of the Ten Rings terrorist organization.
Filming for Shang-Chi commenced in early February 2020, but was postponed after one month of filming due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Shortly after entering hiatus, Marvel announced that it has casted Ronny Chieng (錢信伊) in an undisclosed role.
Five months later, Marvel announced that Shang-Chi has already re-commenced filming for all production units. Local TV stations in Australia also recorded videos of the production set, which features ancient Chinese buildings.
Marvel has also confirmed—after months of speculation—that Michelle Yeoh (楊紫瓊) has officially joined the cast. Michelle shared photos of herself in Sydney, as well as pictures of her getting tested for COVID-19.
Former TVB actress Fala Chen (陳法拉) is also part of the cast.
