We’ve been waiting a long time to see the Phase Four of Marvel Cinematic Universe creep closer to our cinemas screens. With cinemas ready open next month we may have Black Widow to look forward to then Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings. Today on the birthday of the Simu Liu who plays our titular hero Marvel unveils the film’s Official Teaser Trailer and Poster!
The film comes from Short Term 12 director Destin Daniel Cretton. Liu stars as Shang-Chi (Marvel’s first Asian superhero) a young man a highly skilled fighter with superhuman abilities. Trained by his father the leader of The Ten Rings, however Shang wants a ‘normal life’.
If your a fan of Hong Kong/Chinese cinema you will recognise Tony Leung who has appeared in In The Mood For Love, Chungking Express, Hard Boiled, lust & Caution. If you know your Marvel villains, he’s playing Wenwu who maybe our hero’s father…he’s also the boss of the villainous group Ten Rings and better known as The Mandarin!
Liking everything we’re seeing here, a story focusing very much on complicated father son relationship as fuel for the film. Great to see see a new character a chance to shine and a hopefully a new franchise on the cards!
