Shang-Chi Star Wants In On Next Avengers Movie

Kevin Feige is a master of answering questions without leaking details or plot points, a necessary skill when serving as the architect of the most popular franchise in the industry, under intense scrutiny from all corners of the internet.

Recently, Marvel’s CCO teased about the future of The Avengers through Phase Four, revealing that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will assemble again, a fact that will be lingering in the background of almost every project between now and whenever Marvel Cinematic Universe’s fifth all-star epic eventually happens.

Before the release of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, star Simu Liu teased hope for his character’s MCU future, including potential collaborations with Spider-Man, Anthony Mackie’s Captain America,and the Guardians of the Galaxy. Therefore, it’s no surprise the actor said he wants in on Avengers 5, when it becomes a reality.

“In terms of what’s next, I know what’s on my mind is the same as what’s on everybody else’s mind, and hopefully, there’s an Avengers in the future, somewhere. Obviously, I don’t know anything about that, but being such a big fan of the whole franchise, I know that that’s the gold star.”

Several Phase One stalwarts may be dead, retired, or cycled out, but it’s not as though the MCU is lacking costumed crimefighters. There are many available options for The Avengers, and with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings setting up Liu for bigger and better things, he’ll likely be a part of it.
