Digital Darlings: Destin Daniel Cretton Breaks Down Epic ‘Shang-Chi’ Bus Fight

One of the most incredible stunt choreographies in Marvel has to be topped with Shang-Chi’s Simu Liu’s bus fight, garnering the hero’s moniker of ‘Bus Boy’.

Director Destin Daniel Cretton breaks down the scene where Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) fights off a handful of assassins. He lets us in on all of the behind the scenes secrets. Watch the video to find out whats real and whats not. He also elaborates on the complicated shot sequences, and shoot days required to make this scene come to life. Did you know they shot in Sydney and in San Fransisco? The team responsible for bringing this to life also created a brand new lighting rig to mimic the shadows that would pass if the bus truly was moving, out of control through San Fransisco’s packed streets. Destin also lets us in on a little secret….he may or may not have come up with this entire sequence to destroy scooters (honestly Destin…SAME. We Stan).
