Destin Daniel Cretton Returns for Shang-Chi Sequel
Being one of the top grossing films of the year pretty much guarantees a sequel.

The filmmaker is returning to write and direct the sequel to Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is the highest grossing domestic release so far this year with $224.5 million and set a Labor Day record with $94.6 million. The film has grossed over $432 million worldwide.
