Social media influencer Daniel Richtman is suggesting that a Shang-Chi spinoff is in development for Disney+, reports CBR.
If you haven’t seen the Easter egg in the closing credit of Shang-Chi, here’s a spoiler warning.
It shows Xialing sitting in her father’s throne, apparently after rebuilding the Ten Rings.
“There is a line in the middle of the movie where she tells Katy that if her dad won’t let her into his empire, she’s going to build her own,” says director Destin Daniel Cretton to CBR. “So, to see her sit on that throne and redefine it in a way that is uniquely hers is very exciting.”
If there is a spinoff series, potentially the show could be based on other Ten Ring characters.
Showbiz Cheat Sheet discusses other possible spin offs.
Awkwafina’s Katy could take her archery skills developed in the movie, she could potentially interact with the Avenger team.
Another potential spin off could explore Tony Leung’s backstory, before Shang-Chi.
Does all this preclude Shang-Chi coming back to the big screen? While some have presumed it doesn, that doesn’s make economic sense for Disney. Does anyone seriously think Disney is going to pass on making a sequel to a movie that surpassed $200 million at the box office?
There’s enough material here for both the big screen and a streaming TV series.

Outstanding! as an Asian American SAG talent I was very impressed with the film. I had always avoided taking on projects that played on the stereotypical kung fu cartoon version of us. However, in spite of the martial arts found in the movie the main character did not do Chinglish nor did he portray us in a stereotypical way. Even my Anglo wife wanted to se it over and over and encouraged our twins to do the same. BRAVO! Kudos to all involved
