Shang-Chi Sequel Delayed Beyond Avengers

Simu Liu, who plays the titular character in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, recently took to the social media platform Threads to share an update on the sequel’s release. Originally, the plan was for the Shang-Chi sequel to follow the Avengers movie, but due to various circumstances and the changing release dates, that timeline has been pushed back even further. It remains uncertain whether Liu is referring to Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, scheduled for 2026, or Avengers: Secret Wars, set for 2027.

Liu expressed his hope for more concrete news to share soon but acknowledged the circumstances beyond his control that have caused the delay.

The question of whether Shang-Chi will appear in Avengers 5, known as Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, has also sparked curiosity among fans. With director Destin Daniel Cretton, who helmed Shang-Chi, set to direct the Avengers movie, there is speculation about Liu reprising his role. In a previous interview, Liu expressed his hope to be part of the Avengers movie but advised fans not to solely rely on his word.

Liu expressed his elation upon learning about Cretton’s involvement with Avengers, praising his ability to infuse humanity and relatable human stories even in the grand spectacle of a $150 million movie. Liu eagerly looks forward to collaborating with Cretton again and believes in his ability to make the Avengers film memorable and special.
