Mysterious Marvel Movie To Film In Australia, Might Be Shang-Chi

A new Marvel movie will film in Sydney, though it’s unclear at this stage what production it is. A news release from Mitch Fifield, Australia’s Minister for Communications and the Arts, and New South Wales Minister for the Arts Don Harwin, confirmed that the “Untitled Marvel Studios Feature Film” will begin production at some point in 2019 in and around Sydney.

The Australian Federal Government put in $24 million from the “Made in NSW fund” to help entice Marvel and owner Disney to film in Australia. Filming will take place at Fox Studios Australia and “other locations” in the country. Disney claimed ownership of Fox Studios Australia as part of its acquisition of Fox.

It’s not the first Marvel movie to film in Australia, as Thor: Ragnarok also filmed in the country.

According to Fifield, the new Marvel movie filming in Australia will create 4,700 new jobs and utilise the services of around 1,200 local businesses. In total, Australia is expecting to see “over $150 million of new international investment” related to this decision.

The production of the movie is expected to spend in excess of $100 million in New South Wales and establish as many as 770 jobs for local screen professionals specifically.

“The film needs a large workforce of highly specialised special effects technicians and will also require sophisticated stunts, all of which NSW’s incredibly skilled and experienced screen industry can deliver,” Harwin said in a statement.

“Marvel Studios thanks the Australian and NSW Governments and is thrilled to be returning to Australia to work with the talented and highly skilled Australian crew, stunt performers, and actors together with the thousands of small businesses across Australia that supply world class equipment, goods, facilities, and services to large budget productions,” Marvel Studios vice president David Grant said.

According to Sydney Morning Herald, the Marvel movie shooting in Sydney is Shang-Chi, which would be Marvel’s first superhero film starring an Asian protagonist.

The next Marvel movie is the much-anticipated Avengers: Endgame, which will wrap up 10 years worth of MCU storytelling.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
