The MCU is back in theatres on September 3rd, with its new action epic Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Check out the trailer below.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings trailer:
Let’s be honest here: Shang-Chi is one of Marvel’s D-list characters, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be excited about this film. I’m a martial arts flick diehard, and nothing on Marvel’s release schedule has me as hyped up as Shang-Chi.
In the world of Marvel comics, nobody kicks as quite like Shang-Chi. People regard the man as the most badass fighter on the planet. That speaks volumes in a world with Daredevil, Iron Fist, and Elektra walking the streets. To do this character justice onscreen means at bare minimum delivering some John Wick-calibre fight choreography. And based on what we’ve seen from the trailers so far, director Destin Daniel Cretton nails it.
As for the character’s low profile? Who cares? The MCU has a stellar track record for transforming B-list (Iron Man) and C-list (Star-Lord) into pop culture icons. With Kim’s Convenience star Simu Liu cast in the title role, Shang-Chi feels primed for a pop culture breakout.
Shang-Chi looks like one hell of a wild ride. Catch it in theatres on September 3rd.
