Full Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings the trailer is here, as promised by this morning’s brief teaser. It contains a lot more action involving Tony Leung’s Mandarin, who explains how the Ten Rings “empowered our family”. (In this movie, the Mandarin is also Shang-Chi’s father.) And we see the Ten Rings in action; they can be launched almost like boomerangs, and they also shoot energy. In the comics, the Mandarin’s rings were exactly that, ten rings worn on each of his fingers. In the movie, they look more like fancy bracelets, worn at five per arm.
And from the looks of the trailer, it looks like Shang-Chi himself (Simu Liu) may end up wielding these things himself by the end of the movie. It would definitely give a guy known in Marvel Comics as a master of kung fu a big bonus. If they are considering adding Shang-Chi to any future Avengers movie lineup, that would make sense.
But that’s speculation for later! For now, let’s just watch the trailer:
Was it … Abomination at the end of the trailer?
It looks like it. And he’s fighting someone with the slingshot rings and magical powers of Doctor Strange. Tim Roth, who appeared as the Abomination in the 2008s The Incredible Hulk, has already been confirmed to return for this role in the upcoming She-Hulk Disney + series. But looks like he’s coming here first to some sort of underground superhero fight club? Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Marvel Studios’ “Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings” stars Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, who must face the past he thought he left behind when he was drawn into the network. the mysterious Ten Rings organization. The film also stars 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 and the legend of the ten rings is scheduled to hit theaters on September 3.
