Shang Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings Release Date
Shang Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings will be released on 3rd September 2021 in the United States. It has already premiered in Los Angeles back on 16th August 2021. Also, the film will get screened at CinemaCon on 25th August 2021. Now, you guys should keep in mind that the film will actually have an exclusive 45-day release in the theatres, unlike what we saw happening with Black Widow. Disney CEO Bob Chapek, while being in an interview about the release of Shang Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings, talked about how he thinks this 45-day exclusive release will be an interesting experiment. It will help the company understand how its viewers want to consume the content.
After 45 days, the film will be available to watch on Disney Plus as all the Marvel content does. This decision of the creators has come forth after the alarming rise of COVID-19 Delta Variant cases across the United States. All this while, actor Liu surely had an issue with Bob Chapek as he labeled the film an experiment. Later, it was Kevin Feige who resolved the deal between the two. He stated that Liu had mistaken the intentions that Bob had for the film. Prior to this, the film was supposed to get a release on 12th February 2021. Later, it got shifted to 7th May, but we saw how that was not possible either. We had another release date for 9th July, but well. There were a lot of rumors regarding the movie not getting a release in China.
