Shang-Chi: The director explains the post-credit scenes and defends a pivotal end-of-film death

Despite the current epidemic age, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has performed exceptionally well at the movie office, becoming one of the year's biggest surprises in the superhero genre. Destin Daniel Cretton, the film's director, has now revealed new details about the plot and script, focusing on the post-credits scenes and a key death at the conclusion. This is how ET Online gathers it through an interview with the director; it goes without saying that the following paragraph contains significant Shang-Chi spoilers.


The following paragraph contains spoilers.

The first of the post-credit scenes, in which Shang-Chi, Captain Marvel, Bruce Banner, and Wong discuss the true genesis of the Ten Rings, is one of the features that most open the UCM. “It was something I had requested from the start, but you can't force something that doesn't make sense in this environment. And he didn't get it until right before the shoot.


We had to make sure it made sense for her to be on the scene because a lot of things are written at the same time, and we did. It was one of the final things we shot, and it turned out to be quite spectacular. "It was great to be able to spend time with her before filming, but seeing Brie emerge from her dressing room in the Captain Marvel outfit was incredible," adds the filmmaker, who has previously worked with the actress.

Because Brie Larson and Mark Ruffalo shot their scenes separately, the director discloses that only Wong was on set with Simu Liu and Awkwafina. Destin Daniel Cretton says of the second post-credit scene, in which Xialing takes over her father's organization, "the family has taken significant steps toward reconciliation, but it would be naïve to imagine that everything has been repaired."


I believe Xialing had been coping with an emotional issue throughout the film that was not addressed, and she clearly deserved as much care from her family as Shang-Chi. In one scene in the film, she informs Katy that if her father refuses to let him into her empire, she would construct her own.


Finally, the filmmaker exposes the villain's previous plans, revealing that there was a version of the film in which he did not die at the end; instead, they chose to sacrifice him: “Some things worked, while others did not. We were always on the lookout for the most accurate interpretation of the story for the characters. Despite the fact that the characters work on an operatic level, there are some things you try and feel like you're cheating. And one of them was that. But you already know that anything may happen at the UCM,” the director says, leaving open the possibility of future opportunities?
