While Marvel Studios has temporarily put a halt on production on Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings due to the coronavirus pandemic (at a cost of between $300,000 to $350,000 per day, according to THR), some set photos have arrived online from the film’s production base in Sydney, Australia in the past few days.
Firstly, we have a look at a masked figure exiting a helicopter (with online chatter suggesting the mystery character could be Tony Leung’s Mandarin, or even Simu Liu’s Shang-Chi himself), while the second set of photos shows a group of armored warriors, speculated to be The Mandarin’s army.
