Shang-Chi has surpassed Black Widow to become the highest-grossing film of the pandemic. The action-packed Marvel film has earned over $367 million at the global box office, overtaking Black Widow's previous record of $366 million. This achievement is significant as it highlights the strong performance of Shang-Chi, which centers around an Asian superhero, and signals a positive shift in representation in Hollywood. The film's success also indicates the growing enthusiasm of audiences to return to theaters, providing hope for the struggling film industry amid ongoing uncertainties caused by the pandemic.


Marvel's "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" is set to become the highest-grossing movie of the COVID-19 pandemic, surpassing "Black Widow," according to Deadline. "Black Widow" was released simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+, leading to an ongoing legal battle between star Scarlett Johansson and Disney. "Shang-Chi" had a theatrical release and has been performing well at the box office, leading Disney to stick to an exclusive theatrical release for its upcoming releases. The movie stars Simu Liu as the title character and features a diverse cast.
