Destin Daniel Cretton is coming to Marvel soon with him returning to write and direct the sequel to Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and he is also coming to produce a new Disney+ MCU series, as reported by Deadline.
The series is a part of the new Daniel Cretton made with Disney’s Marvel Studios and Hulu’s Onyx Collective. The multi-year deal will allow Cretton to focus on uplifting and underrepresented voices in films and television. According to this deal, Cretton will create many projects not only for Disney+ but also for Hulu, but the MCU Disney+ series is the only confirmed series so far.
Kevin Feige, President and Chief Creative Officer of Marvel Studios said this on Cretton’s deal:
“Destin is an amazing collaborator who brought a unique perspective and skill to Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings. We had a fantastic time working together on the film and he has so many intriguing ideas for stories to bring to life on Disney+, so we’re thrilled to expand our relationship with him and can’t wait to get started.”
Cretton will executive producer all the projects which are included in the new deal through his production company Family Owned. The Shang-Chi creator will be the second Marvel creator to join Onyx Collective after Black Panther director Ryan Coogler.
Cretton told this to Deadline on joining Onyx Collective and returning to work again with Feige:
“Working on Shang-Chi with Kevin and the Marvel Studios team was one of the highlights of my life, and I couldn’t be more excited about Tara [Duncan]’s vision for Onyx Collective. I can’t wait to explore new stories and build new worlds with this community.”
The updates on the Disney+ MCU series will be coming soon, as well as all the new projects included in the new deal between Onyx Collective and Cretton.
