It was only a matter of time, but the news has finally dropped that Destin Daniel Cretton, fresh off of his success with Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings, will return to write and direct its sequel. Kevin Feige had the following to say as the director has now inked a deal with the studio alongside Hulu’s Onyx Collection.
Destin is an amazing collaborator who brought a unique perspective and skill to Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings. We had a fantastic time working together on the film and he has so many intriguing ideas for stories to bring to life on Disney+, so we’re thrilled to expand our relationship with him and can’t wait to get started.Kevin Feige
Marvel Studios has proven its reliability in picking talent and with the deal inked, it means that many other projects might be in the characters’ future. Of course, there are no details given on what the sequel might include, but there’s a lot of potential in exploring the setup we got in Ta Lo. Some time ago, we had our own theory that we might potentially explore an Iron Fist connection in the sequel, which could also build upon the legacy we’re teased off. Of course, they might take a unique direction to build upon the Ten Rings that are still active in one of the post-credit sequences. We’ll see what the future has in store for the titular hero.
