The filming of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is one of those that was underway when the coronavirus crisis entered the scene. And although logically, the production was canceled soon after, there have been many leaks on the set that have occurred since then.
The last one revealed a possible connection between that movie and Black Panther. And today's could be even more revealing. To the point that the film could take place in a completely unexplored era by Marvel until today. And as always, a moving image is worth a thousand words ...
As pointed out from Comicbook, Twitter user @charlesbassf has shown us this small video in which we can see a scene from the film in which Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) and the character of Awkwafina are shown arriving in a Taxi to a seedy place in an Asian city or district. Under normal conditions, it would only be a quick shot in which we see how the character arrives. But not everything is always what it seems.

In this way, we can see that while they walk, the characters pass a wall with the year 2020 printed in graffiti. The question now is: is the graffiti part of the movie scene, or is it just a natural coincidence of the location set on the shoot itself? Or in other words, does the movie take place in that year? Or is it just real-life graffiti that will then disappear from the edit?

The question is more important than we might think at first. To give you an idea, the UCM movies based on Marvel comics/novels do not run between 2018-2023. Thus, Shang-Chi could be the first movie to change that entirely. That is, we could not rule out that the film was located between Infinity War and Endgame, which could be very interesting. What would you think if it were so?
