Marvel Studios debuts poster and trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
I love all things comic related, but there are two Marvel properties that I have been more excited about than anything that has come before. One being the upcoming Moon Knight Disney + series and the other being Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The film features Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, Tony Leung as Wenwu, Awkwafina as Shang-Chi’s friend Katy and Michelle Yeoh as Jiang Nan, as well as Fala Chen, Meng’er Zhang, Florian Munteanu, and Ronny Chieng.
Shang-Chi debuted in comics in 1973 and followed Shang-Chi was born in the Honan province of China, and is the son of Fu Manchu, the Chinese mastermind who has repeatedly attempted world conquest and had a thirst for blood. His mother was a white American woman genetically selected by his father.
While we don’t have an official synopsis as of yet for the film it is said to follow Shang-Chi who is drawn into the clandestine Ten Rings organization and forced to confront the past he thought he left behind. Visually it is sticking to the more modern look of the character, but I can only hope we get at least a nod to the classic version I love so much.
While we will have to wait until September 3rd to see the film in theaters, you can check out the first poster and trailer here now from Marvel Studios.
