There’s a lot of creative detail and vision that goes into creating the look, feel, and lore of a Marvel movie. Just ask Andy Park, Marvel’s director of visual development, who created the world around Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
In an interview with ScreenRant, Park reveals the imagination, research, and attention to detail that have become one of the biggest films of the year. He talked about how proud he was to be the creator of the first leading Asian character in the MCU. “There have been a few Asian characters throughout the MCU’s history, but to get to the first title, the leading character in Asia and just the world we’ve created, I’m proud and happy.” Park said.
Park started with Marvel Studios over eleven years ago, as part of the team that brought Captain America: The First Avenger into Phase One of the MCU. He described the process of bringing beloved Marvel characters to life as “very organic” and he began to imagine the look of the Marvel characters. Shang-Chi before starting production on the film. He continued, “I like comic books because I grew up in the 80s, 90s as a Marvel Comics fan. So for me, working here. I’ve always pushed for a more accurate view of comics.”
“I started working before Destin [Daniel Cretton] Park said. “We’re working on it so many times, even pre-production. It hasn’t even officially gone into production yet, but that’s one of the benefits Marvel has and the foresight they had very early on in the early years of the MCU,” added Park.
Park also shared exclusive concept art from Shang-Chi, one of which shows Shang-Chi in his fighting stance against a dragon, and the second with his suit. The concept art shows in vivid detail the mythological aspect that Park wanted to portray with the character while respecting the lore of the film.
