Marvel Studios is still currently not filming anything for 2020, although casting has started for the upcoming “Black Widow” film. The film starring Scarlett Johansson was supposed to start filming in late February however it was delayed. It is expected to begin filming later this Summer.

James Gunn is returning to the MCU and will be directing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3, however, we will have to wait at least 3 years. Due to scheduling conflicts with Gunn’s prior engagement with the DC film Suicide Squad (Reboot) filming for Guardians, 3 is reported to start in 2021, so don’t expect to see the film until sometime late 2022!

A new hero is on the horizon at Marvel Studios. It almost seems like Kevin Feige wants to introduce a new hero every year or so. Even though we know Black Widow, we are going to know her history when her movie is complete.

We’re also learning that the next big hero in the MCU will be Asian. “Shang-Chi” will be Marvels first Asian superhero to join the MCU. Dave Callahan has been chosen to write the screenplay, and Marvel is already looking for an Asian or Asian American director to helm the film. Their goal is to do a similar thing as they did with Black Panther. Getting people familiar with Asian and Asian-American culture.

Shang-Chi made his first debut in Marvel Comics “Special Marvel Edition #15 in 1973. He is a master of Kung Fu and was privately tutored by various martial arts masters. Shang-Chi was trained to be an assassin for his criminal mastermind father. Shang-Chi had also aligned himself with the likes of the X-Men and the Marvel Knights at one point.
