He's a big talent, not a big name.

Marvel's 'Shang-Chi' Movie Just Got a Director

  Well, aside from Captain Marvel's continued dominance, we've got an Oscar-winning documentary landing on Hulu and some good news for Marvel's first Asian American-led movie.

  Marvel's Shang-Chi Movie Has a Director All the hype right now might be about Marvel's first female-lead movie Captain Marvel, but that doesn't mean that's the only comic-book movie news worth talking about.

  In fact, word has just emerged that the studio has hired Destin Daniel Cretton to direct Shang-Chi, Marvel’s first superhero movie with an Asian lead.

  If you don’t immediately recognize the name, Cretton is the director behind Short Term 12, an indie flick about a group home for teenagers that coincidentally starred Captain Marvel herself, Brie Larson.

  Captain Marvel Will Dominate for a Second Weekend Not content with the half-billion in US dollars it's already pocketed, Captain Marvel is projected to snag everyone's last coin again this weekend.
