The cancelling of the Shang-Chi Holiday Special featuring Simu Liu has left Marvel Cinematic Universe fans disappointed. As of now, Disney and Marvel are yet to make an official comment on the same. Although many are saddened by the unfortunate news, but there are people who are offended and calling out the actor for being too insensitive over Warner Bros. move to scrap the much-awaited DC’s Supergirl and Batgirl.
Other than this project, the studio is also making The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. The show is currently under production and it is being directed by James Gunn for the streaming service Disney+. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, and Pom Klementieff will be reprising their roles from the film series.
Meanwhile, the details about the Shang-Chi Holiday Special were under wraps and other than Simu Liu no information was shared regarding the other cast members. As per the rumour, the spin-off show was supposed to dive into the film’s post-credits scene with Xialing played by Meng’er Zhang leading the Ten Rings.
