Exclusive: With ‘Shang-Chi’ poised to launch a new franchise for Marvel Studios, they have already found the project they will pursue next for the character.
I’ve learned an ‘Agents of Atlas’ adaptation is in development, but it’s unclear whether it will be a movie or a Disney+ show. The upcoming movie ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend Of the Ten Rings’ will be used to set it up though.
The most recent relaunch of Agents of Atlas is lead by Special Agent Jimmy Woo (who was played by Randall Park in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ and will next be seen in ‘WandaVision’), and also features Shang-Chi, Aero (a Chinese heroine with wind powers), Brawn (Amadeus Cho, the former Hulk), and Silk (a Spider-Man ally), among other Asian characters.
‘Shang-Chi’ stars Simu Liu, Awkwafina, and Tony Leung, and will hit theaters on February 12, 2021. Destin Daniel Cretton is directing with a script from David Callaham.
