Shang-Chi got the first trailer. On Monday, Marvel unveiled a two-minute trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the next Marvel Cinematic Universe film following the upcoming Scarlett Johansson-led film. Black Widow. The first one Shang-Chi The trailer features the titular protagonist (Simu Liu), his father Wenwu (Tony Leung) who is the Chief of the Ten Rings, and his best friend Katy (Awkwafina). It also reveals the myriad of sets from Marvel’s first Asian superhero film, ranging from futuristic blades to mythological battles involving giant bears.

We see the Shang-Chi train by itself as the Shang-Chi the trailer begins, before seeing him as a valet in an American hotel. “I gave you ten years to live your life,” Wenwu said in a voiceover, addressing his son. “Where has it taken you?” Shang-Chi leads a normal life in America, goes karaoke, parties with Katy, and clicks selfies. the Shang-Chi The trailer gives us a glimpse into his childhood, which involved rigorous training – something adult Shang-Chi seemed interested in moving away from.

Iron Man. But Shang-Chi has no interest in doing that, and he says so in the Shang-Chi trailer.

The rest of the Shang-Chi The trailer is made up of excerpts from action scenes. Some of them are reminiscent of wireframe movies such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, others feel like they’ve channeled The Matrix (which, to be fair, is wireframe anyway) , and there’s an element of Jackie Chan as well. These are all very martial arts, rightly so, is what I’m trying to say. As expected, there is a comedic scene at the end with Katy at the helm of a runaway bus that reminded me of the years 1994. Speed.

In addition to Liu, Leung, and Awkwafina, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings also stars Fala Chen as Shang-Chi’s estranged sister Jiang Li, Ronny Chieng as Jon Jon and Michelle Yeoh. in the role of Jiang Nan.
