It's understatement of Marvel movie proportions to say that COVID-19 has affected the entertainment industry. Around the world, cinemas have been forced to close, production on upcoming TV and movie projects have been halted, and the releases of major blockbusters have been delayed indefinitely.
Like Marvel’s upcoming Shang-Chi: The Legend of the Ten Rings.
Filming for the movie, which is set for release in May 2021, is supposed to be underway in Australia now if not for director Destin Daniel Cretton’s COVID-19 scare. Because he had been in close proximity with people who had tested positive for the virus, he chose to get tested too even though he wasn’t feeling any symptoms. Thankfully, his results came back negative but the whole production had to be suspended due to the pandemic anyway. It's not known when shooting will resume.
