‘SHANG-CHI’ Production Headed to SF, Home of the Agents of Atlas
Production on the Marvel Studios film Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings will shift stateside next week with scenes being filmed in San Francisco. Production on the film has been ongoing in Australia for the past couple of months and may still continue there even as stunt crews begin work in California this week in preparation for some stunt sequences that will be filmed next week.
The MCU is no stranger to filming in the 415 as scenes were filmed in the San Francisco Bay Area for both Ant-Man and Ant-Man and The Wasp, opening the door for a possible connection between the two franchises, perhaps via Jimmy Woo whose comic book counterpart leads the Agents of Atlas from their secret base, the Temple of Atlas, located in caverns beneath the city. Earlier this year, it was rumored that Marvel Studios was developing Agents of Atlas as a Disney Plus series, and given the team’s recent resurgence in the comics, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them join the MCU at some point.
Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings is currently set to hit theaters July 9, 2021.
