Marvel signs Destin Daniel Cretton for Phase IV's Shang-Chi

Marvel Studios has hired its director for Shang-Chi, the project that will feature the studio's first Asian lead.

Destin Daniel Cretton will direct the feature, based on the classic character known for his martial arts prowess. Cretton broke out with the 2013 indie favorite Short Term 12, which starred Brie Larson as a woman working in a group home for teenagers. Cretton reteamed with Larson for 2017's The Glass Castle, and he is currently directing the Captain Marvel star and Black Panther's Michael B. Jordan in Just Mercy, based on the memoir of Equal Justice Initiative founder Bryan Stevenson.

Other filmmakers who were in the running for Shang-Chi included Dear White People's Justin Tipping, Master of Young's Alan Yang, who is behind the upcoming John Cho movie Tigertail, and Deborah Chow, whose credits include episodes of Reign, Jessica Jones and the upcoming Star Wars Disney+ series The Mandalorian.

Shang-Chi, who in the comics is half-Chinese and half-American, first appeared in 1973ís Special Marvel Edition No. 15 and was created by Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin after Marvel failed to acquire the comic book rights to the television series Kung Fu. Shang-Chi was trained as a martial artist a*sassin by his father, the infamous pulp villain Fu Manchu, but later became a hero after rebelling against his father's ways. Shang-Chi was a hit character in the '70s, and recently saw a revival as a member of The Avengers during 2012ís Marvel Now! Publishing event.

Wonder Woman 1984 screenwriter Dave Callaham is penning the script for Shang-Chi and will update the character for modern audiences. Marvel is said to be planning on a*sembling a largely Asian-American and Asian cast for this feature.

Marvel head Kevin Feige is producing, with Marvelís Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and Jonathan Schwartz executive producing. The studio is coming off of last week's successful opening of Captain Marvel, which has already passed the $500 million mark at the box office and is the studio's first female-led outing.

News of Shang-Chi comes as Marvel eyes an end to the 11-year journey it began with 2008's Iron Man and will in some ways conclude with next month's Avengers: Endgame. Aside from Spider-Man: Far From Home (July 5), the studio has not revealed its post-Endgame plans, though films it has in the works include sequels to Black Panther and Doctor Strange; a Black Widow prequel and The Eternals.

Cretton is represented by WME.

Wow this is fu*king huge..

Y’all understand the significance of this?

Asians really haven’t gotten represented well on screen but Rich Asians changed up the whole game.

Not just that but a character that really isn’t known getting a film made? People talk about Iron Man & Cap America being D+ characters when they got films, Shang Chi is a fu*king Z list

This is crazy, salute to marvel.

And they got bruh from Short Term 12

This dude ain't even Z list...n*gga is nowhere to be found in the alphabet

Last time I think I saw Shang Chi in a Marvel comic was a side issue of World War Hulk when he was running with Misty Knight's crew. But eff it, this will do numbers in China like others have said...Marvel are all about getting that paper right now.

I'm willing to bet this gets released in Asia same day as the UK / US...no way in hell are they gonna allow the whole continent to wait to watch this on bootleg

Marvel tryin to break the bank in China.



Folks can talk sh*t now, but Shang Chi could do Black Panther numbers, and possibly higher. My only request is that they hire only the best f*ght choreographers and that the production design is top notch.

Incels are furious at Marvel for pandering, they've demanded that all starring roles go to white males going forward after the disastrous box office debut of Captain Marvel that they all easily predicted



For real though even as someone that collected Spider-Man comics for about a decade I've never read anything featuring this character. It's wild that Marvel has the juice to make a movie starring a character they're introducing to not only the general public but also people that have been reading Marvel a long time

And that's the fu*ked up thing most of the black community all are being we grew up watching kung fu movies and Anime


I will go as far to say Bruce Lee is a huge icon in the black community


All we ever done was embrace most everybody but we as Black Americans continue to get sh*t on and talked about

America sh*t the world would be different without the Black American


And we'll continue to make change
They can like it or not

After countless “z-list” movies that wanda & co conjured up during the past few years the communist party must have finally gotten sick of how sh!tty they all were with absolutely none to salvage so they just offed all the middlemen decided just to go straight to the top

Wouldnt expect anything other than them just pouring more money to buy out hollywood. Would not be surprised if wanda flat out buys out disney altogether by 2020
