Warner Bros. tapped former Guardians of the Galaxy 3 filmmaker James Gunn to write a script from scratch and guide.

Furthermore, David Dastmalchian is Polka Dot Man, Daniela Melchior is Ratcatcher, John Cena is Peacekeeper, and Sylvester Stallone is voicing King Shark.

With Shang-Chi, Marvel unveils its first superhero movie with an Asian lead. The film relies on a comics character created in the early 1970s by writer Steve Englehart and artist Jim Starlin and was born from Marvel Comics’ desire to acquire the rights to the TV series Kung Fu, which they were denied. Instead, they acquired the rights to the villain Fu Manchu and made Shang-Chi as a son of Fu Manchu. From the comic books, Shang-Chi was raised and educated by his dad in martial arts, but if he discovered his father was really evil, he turned against him. Marvel filled out the ensemble with a largely Asian cast, looking towards Black Panther for a template for how this type of film ought to be put together. Short Term 12 director Destin Daniel Cretton won the leading gig over other candidates that included Alan Yang (Master of None) and Deborah Chow (The Mandarin).
The story finds Shang-Chi with turned his back on his father, The Mandarin, just to now must confront him and his offenses 10 years after his self-imposed exile. The movie was originally scheduled to be released in February 2021 but was pushed since the COVID-19 pandemic.

What We Know So Far: This is Venom 2. The very first Venom premiered on this exact same weekend in October and has grossed around $800 million worldwide, which is kind of insane. So this is one superhero film whose post-credits sequence doesn’t appear to have been for naught, as we’ll see Woody Harrelson’s Carnage front and center in this follow-up alongside Naomie Harris as villain Shriek.
The movie was initially scheduled to be published on October 2, 2020, but was pushed due to the COVID-19 shutdown.

Upon arrival in Japan, the Arashikage teaches Snake Eyes the ways of the ninja warrior, while also providing something he has been longing for: a house.
But when secrets from his past are revealed, Snake Eyes’ honor and allegiance are going to be analyzed — even if that means losing the trust of those nearest to him. Based on the iconic G.I.

Filming began in the fall of 2019 and wrapped in January 2020.

Spider-Man: No Way Home
Release Date: December 16, 2021
Cast: Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei, J.B. Smoove, Jamie Foxx, Alfred Molina, and Benedict Cumberbatch
As Spider-Man: Far from Home was hitting theaters globally, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures were locked in contentious discussions regarding the expansion of their venture on future Spider-Man movies. Briefly, Sony still holds the license to Spider-Man, but starting with Spider-Man: Homecoming brought Marvel Studios and its president, Kevin Feige, onboard to serve as the direct creative producer to help steer the direction of that film (a reboot), and subsequently, its sequel was given how nicely Homecoming performed. Far from Home writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers returned to pen the screenplay, and Homecoming and Far from Home helmer Jon Watts is back in the manager’s seat.
Plot details are firmly under wraps, but using the supported involvement of Jamie Foxx as Electro and Alfred Molina as Doc Ock, plus the rumored participation of Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Kirsten Dunst, and Tobey Maguire, this film is likely to blast the multiverse wide open.
The film was originally scheduled to be released in July 2021 but has been pushed due the COVID-19 shutdown.
