Either you watch them by release date or you watch them chronologically. For Marvel Cinematic Universe fans, there can be only one (way to watch)! For the chronologically minded, Marvel Studios has now given you one less thing to stress about and revealed just where Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings fits into established chronology. And it’s right where you probably expected it to be, more or less.
According to the “Marvel Cinematic Universe in Timeline Order” section of Disney Plus, the events of Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings take place after the events of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
Background details already indicated that Shang-Chi’s adventures took place post-Blip despite some early and ill-advised rumors that it would take place DURING the gap between Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
Of course, there is one question left open: with the MCU’s Spider-Man films not available on Disney Plus, fans still don’t know exactly where to place Spider-Man: Far From Home during their rewatch.
