Shang-Chi has gotten the primary trailer. On Monday, Marvel unveiled a two-minute teaser trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the subsequent Marvel Cinematic Universe film after the upcoming Scarlett Johansson-led Black Widow. The primary Shang-Chi trailer introduces the titular protagonist (Simu Liu), his father Wenwu (Tony Leung) who’s the chief of the Ten Rings, and his finest good friend Katy (Awkwafina). It additionally reveals the myriad settings for Marvel’s first Asian superhero film, starting from futuristic blades to mythological battles that contain big bears. In India, Shang-Chi will launch in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada.
We see Shang-Chi practice by himself because the Shang-Chi teaser trailer begins, earlier than we see him as a valet at an American lodge. “I gave you ten years to reside your life,” Wenwu says in voice-over, addressing his son. “The place did that get you?” Shang-Chi is seen main a traditional life in America, going to karaoke, partying with Katy, and clicking selfies. The Shang-Chi trailer provides us a glimpse of his childhood, which concerned rigorous coaching — one thing it appeared the grownup Shang-Chi was inn getting away from.
“You walked in my shadow,” his father Wenwu continues as we see a teenage Shang-Chi cope with black-clad males wielding knives. “I educated you so probably the most harmful folks on this planet could not kill you.” Enter somebody clad in all black and a painted white masks. Wenwu provides: “Son, it’s time so that you can take your house by my aspect.” Wenwu has clearly groomed Shang-Chi to be the subsequent chief of the Ten Rings, the terrorist organisation that we first encountered in 2008’s Iron Man. However Shang-Chi has little interest in doing that, and he says as a lot within the Shang-Chi trailer.
The remainder of the Shang-Chi teaser trailer is made up of motion scene snippets. A few of them really feel paying homage to wire fu films corresponding to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, others really feel like they’ve channeling The Matrix (which to be honest is a component wire fu anyway), and there is a component of Jackie Chan to it as effectively. It is all very martial arts, fittingly, is what I am attempting to say. Expectedly, there is a comical scene on the finish with Katy on the helm of a runaway bus that jogged my memory of 1994’s Velocity.
Along with Liu, Leung, and Awkwafina, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings additionally stars Fala Chen as Shang-Chi’s estranged sister Jiang Li, Ronny Chieng as Jon Jon, and Michelle Yeoh as Jiang Nan. Behind the scenes, Destin Daniel Cretton is the director on Shang-Chi, working off a screenplay by David Callaham. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is the producer.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is out September 3 worldwide, solely in cinemas — the Shang-Chi trailer claims. That is as a result of Black Widow is coming to each cinemas and Disney+ with Premier Entry on launch date.
