First post-credits scene was written much later
In an interview with the Inverse website, the screenwriter Dave Callaham revealed that the first scene of the credits of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was thought of too late in production, and it came out of the director’s mind Destin Daniel Cretton.
“That was something Destin thought”, says Callaham. “I only saw him a few days before they filmed, when they asked me to help.”
Overall, the scene exists to recognize one of the biggest issues of Shang-Chi: where did the ten rings come from? According to the screenwriter, it was decided that the origins of the objects would be left ambiguous, to leave more mysteries for the MCU to solve in the future.
