He unequivocally stated: “Shang-Chi is set in the present day in the MCU timeline.”

Fandango went on to ask if he definitely means post-snap, which he goes on to confirm. It remains to be seen which Snap he is talking about as Thanos’s snap is in the past and Tony Stark’s more of in the present day, therefore we assume it takes place after Avengers: Endgame.

Once it was rumoured that the movie would take place during the 5 year time span after the snap, as this is a period that hasn’t really been explored yet. Looks like this rumour got debunked, but I am sure that we get to see more of that time span sooner than later.

We get answers when Shang-Chi and the Legend of The Ten Rings hits theaters September 3, 2021.
