Marvel’s Shang-Chi might be free only 45 days after its theatrical run

If you don't mind seeing it on the small screen.

Still grappling with how exactly to tackle its big releases in a post-pandemic world, Marvel has teased the idea of releasing Shang-Chi for free on Disney Plus after its 45-day theatre exclusive run.

“The prospect of being able to take a Marvel title to the service after going theatrical 45 days will be yet another data point to inform our actions going forward,” said Disney CEO Bob Chapek during a conference call about Disney’s fiscal quarter earnings. He went on to say it would be an “interesting experiment”.

Normally, certain movies that are released on Disney Plus would have a $30 premium price tag slapped onto it, along with the cost of your subscription.

Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings is the newest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is set to hit theatres in September. If it does get a free streaming release, you’ll see it on Disney Plus in mid-October.
