Last week, Michelle shared her painful experience of undergoing the Covid-19 test in Sydney, Australia—which is where Shang-Chi will be filmed. The caption wrote, “2nd test, sorry so wimpy!! Then has fab dinner to calm nerves..4 more days!!.’’ Minutes after, another Hollywood star confirmed for the movie, Awkwafina, commented on the post, saying, “I know your pain. But good news is I can see the color purple now.”
Marvel’s Shang-Chi was originally set for release in February 2021, but will likely be postponed due to production delays caused by COVID-19. Interestingly, Australian Channel 7News recently shared some footage from the helicopter view of the massive set with the crew hard at work on its construction. From the visuals provided, you’ll notice a large building being painted to make it look like a palace or temple.
It's not Asia and it's not Hollywood; it is Western Sydney, home to the newest addition of the @Marvel movie franchise. The 7NEWS chopper captured these scenes today as work resumed building the set for the upcoming production, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. #7NEWS pic.twitter.com/pvDbMyRHlb
