In an interview with Collider, Cretton was asked about where he’s at on the recently-announed ‘Shang-Chi’ sequel, and he said, “I’ve done [zero]. It’s a fun place to be right now. Everything is a possibility. We’re just tossing very loose ideas around and we’ll start to hone in on something, hopefully.”

When asked about his multi-year deal with Marvel Studios and his upcoming series with them, Cretton said, “[Marvel head] Kevin [Feige] and the team there definitely have a clear idea of where they’re taking the MCU, but they’re also open to pitches and things that we’re passionate about. One of the shows that we’re creating was initially an idea that I was bouncing around with our producer while we were shooting Shang-Chi and it just happened to fit in with the trajectory of where they’re going with the franchise. So, it’s a little back and forth.”

“It’s very weird. We’re talking about release dates and things, and I’m just like, ‘Am I gonna be alive, at that point?’ It’s very strange,” he added.

‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ is the highest-grossing Marvel film this year. The next Marvel film to hit cinemas in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, which comes to the UAE on December 16.
