Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings It will be one of the next premieres of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in what will be the recovery of the ground lost due to the Coronavirus pandemic during 2020. The film will have its world premiere on September 3 and also it will be part of a big change within the studio and Disney, after what happened with Black Widow.
“Shang-Chi must face the past that he thought he had left behind when he finds himself engulfed in the mysterious web of the Ten Rings”says its official synopsis. Simu Liu will play the protagonist of the story, accompanied by a cast that is completed with Awkwafina, Tony Leung, Michelle Yeoh, Fala Chen, Meng’er Zhang, Florian Munteanu and Ronny Chieng.
On July 9 of this year it was released Black Widow in theaters and on the streaming service Disney+ simultaneously, expecting a resounding success as in previous productions, but the result was completely negative, beyond having raised more than 350 million dollars. According to reports, from the first to the second week they suffered the worst drop for an MCU movie, and that is why they made a drastic decision to Shang-Chi.
According to the official announcements of the franchise and the company through social networks, Shang-Chi will be released only in theaters and will not be released on the platform as did the film starring Scarlett Johansson. This changes after The National Association of Film Owners (NATO) took aim against Disney +, pointing out that streaming Premier Access was to blame for the box office drop and in ticket sales.
Although the proceeds can be considered a success for any other film, It is clear that these are not customary figures for Marvel Studios since the beginning of its saga in 2008. Considering the consequences of streaming premieres, Shang-Chi will bet your exit only in rooms and there you can verify your income clearly at the box office, at a time when the Delta variant of COVID-19 is alarming the population.
