Photos are surfacing on Twitter of Marvel production crews. Even a video of a filming of an action sequence featuring a bus has surfaced on Twitter, as well.

Although not much is known of what Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings film will be about, we can expect some pretty cool action sequences as Shang-Chi (played by Simu Liu) is known as the ‘Master of Kung Fu’. Marvel describes the comic character of Shang-Chi as:

A renowned criminal mastermind sired a child who he raised as his heir to an insidious secret society and named him Shang-Chi, the “rising and advancing of the spirit.” In a hidden, ancient fortress in China, the boy became adept at both a multitude of martial arts and philosophical disciplines, completely unaware of his father’s evil pursuits.

As a young man, Shang-Chi found himself tasked by the society to assassinate an old enemy of his father’s, but during the mission came into contact with a venerable British secret agent named Smith. The man illuminated the society’s global criminal activities and in doing so set Shang-Chi on a path to declare war on his own father and everything he stood for.

Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings debuts on July 9, 2021.
