The Film Has Been Pushed Back For A Summer Release Next Year!
If the past is any indication, then Marvel movies tend to do well with a summer release. Black Panther was a huge success and was a February release. So Shang Chi has lucked out with its a new release date.
Moreover, it seems like even Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson also agrees and pointed out over the weekend that the delay can be a blessing in disguise. He says that it will give Cretton and his team more time to make the best movie possible. It seems like Simu Liu is positive about this delay. Fans should wait for the film to hit the box office next summer.
