Marvel just released its trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, kicking off the latest film phase and the return to purely theatrical releases.
Shang-Chi is Marvel’s main martial arts master, the trailer showcases his high flying skills and brings back to life the classic story “hero avoids fate only to embrace it”.
But what can we expect from the film? How does this keep phase 4 of the MCU going? We fought our way through the internet and found answers about what to expect from this action-packed film. Get into your battle stance and dive into what we know so far about ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’.
Not the first MCU martial artist
While Shang-Chi is Marvel’s most prominent martial artist, he’s not the first to get his own live action adaptation. That honor goes to that of Netflix Iron fist, which was part of the larger one The defenders franchise.
Sadly, the show suffered from quite a few issues, including the fact that the show depended on an outdated white savior story, which only frustrated fans and dropped the show’s ratings faster than an enemy kicked out by the leading man.
Happy, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings seems to avoid that problem, as well as others that Iron fist had, with a fantastic, diverse cast (including Aquafina, who definitely brings all the humor into the movie) as well as fun fight scenes that keep fans on the edge of their seats all the time.
Return of The Mandarin
Many Marvel fans probably remember the name ‘The Mandarin’ from the first and third Iron Man movies, the third of which is more widely remembered as a simple doll for Aldrich Killian, the real madman behind the curtain.
However, the trailer promises to show us the real Mandarin and the Ten Rings organization in its entirety as they are the central antagonists of the movie. The film also seems to combine this central conflict with ideas from the most recent Shang-Chi series of comics, as we see the main character trying to live his life in San Francisco before the Ten Rings organization, as well as family drama crashing back into his life.
However, Marvel always likes to push the envelope with their movies, so the comic won’t be the only inspiration for the movie, allowing us to enjoy a story with familiar elements, but with new twists to take this story to new heights. bring.
Back to theaters
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will fall on September 3, 2021 (that’s too far for us!) However, unlike other Marvel movies, it will only hit theaters without a simultaneous Disney + release.
While other movies released before, such as Black Widow, have this simultaneous release, the release of this movie seems to be based on the hope that enough people have been vaccinated against COVID-19 and that enough theaters will have reopened their doors to larger groups by the time the movie comes out.
Hopefully, it will, as this movie marks the continuation of Phase 4 of the MCU and marks the return to strictly theatrical releases for other franchises. We can only be ready to sprint to the box office (and hope to avoid potential hitmen) on September 3 to see this great new episode of the MCU.
