  • Shang-Chi

The Shang-Chi standalone feature is taking a major step forward. The movie also featured future Captain Marvel star, Brie Larson. Cretton broke out in 2013 with his drama Short Term 12, which he adapated from his own short film of the same name. Cretton collaborated with Larson again on The Glass Castle, which is based on Jeannette Walls' memoir. Since the latter film's success was largely credited to its African-American cast and crew and honoring of African traditions and customs, the studio is hoping to repeat that success by spotlighting Asian-Americans and their cultures. Information on the upcoming movie is pretty thin on the ground, but Deadline's reporting that Marvel Studios is courting Destin Daniel Cretton to direct it.

In a big power move by your super mates over at Marvel, director Destin Daniel Cretton has been hired to helm the studio's first Asian-led film about kung fu master and superhero Shang-Chi.

In the wake of Black Panther's massive success, Marvel is expanding its scope and looking to tap into audiences that haven't been particularly well-served at the box office. Callaham's impressive resume includes co-writing the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984 and Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse sequel.
