Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings is an upcoming marvel superhero movie based on the character Shang-Chi which is being distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. The movie has been announced to release on 12th February 2021 and is said to be Marvel’s first Asian superhero. The movie will be part of Marvel’s phase 4
THE CAST: WHO CAN WE EXPECT?
There is very little news on the cast of the movie, but we know that actor Simu Lui will be starring as Shang-Chi. Awkwafina will also be seen in the movie, but so far, her role is unconfirmed. Tony Leung will play the role of Mandarin. So far, the other cast members have not been revealed. The movie has been written by Dave Callaham and is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton.
THE PLOT: WHAT IS THE STORY ALL ABOUT?
There is no official trailer on the movie, but the appearance of the ten rings hints that it plays an important role in phase 4. Shang-Chi is said to have no superpowers, but he excels in martial arts, hence called the Master of Kung Fu. Co-creator Jim Starlin has said that Shang-Chi could take the role of Captain America in the future of the MCU.
In the original comics, Shang-Chi was the son of Fu Manchu, the relic of a less enlightened era. He was raised to become an assassin by his own father, but he escapes his fate and commits his life to take down his father’s criminal domain. He then dedicates his life to fighting evil in the world.
We hope to see Marvel successful with the upcoming movie. This movie is different from what marvel usually creates. It has a sense of reality as the hero isn’t someone with superhuman powers, but he is just an ordinary man with pure intentions.
