Destin Daniel Cretton May Have Announced A New Cast Member For Marvel’s ‘Shang-Chi’

Director Destin Daniel Cretton recently announced that filming on Marvel’s Shang-Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings has completed filming on Instagram.

He also seemingly revealed on Instagram Stories a new cast member with newcomer Zhang Meng Er playing an undisclosed character in the MCU film as mentioned how proud he was with her right after praising the film’s lead Simu Liu. Although, we can’t find a lot of information on her and isn’t the two other Chinese actresses with a similar name.

UPDATE: The director has confirmed she is indeed part of the film’s cast mentioning her alongside Shang-Chi’s three official main leads.

All we have to go on is the Instagram account the director linked to on the post which might suggest she is a new actress. She also hasn’t posted on Instagram since December 30th, 2019.

It’s worth noting that Marvel Studios has only confirmed three cast members with Simu, Tony Leung, and Awkwafina. Destin announcing them on social media as the film has wrapped wouldn’t be shocking.

Here she is at a signing back in the summer of 2019.

Shang-Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings is set to be released on July 9th, 2021.
