A trailer for upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was released on Friday. The China-born superhero Shang-Chi will be the first Asian superhero in MCU. Also called the Master of Kung Fu, he was raised as a master of martial arts by his father.
Abomination vs Wong
The last, tantalising shot of the trailer has none other than Wong, Doctor Strange’s friend, squaring off against Abomination, the supervillain that Edward Norton’s Hulk faced in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. They are fighting in what looks like a gladiatorial tournament. Before this trailer, it was not known if Abomination of Wong will appear in the film, and it suddenly looks like the movie is going to be much bigger than most MCU fans expected.
Being an MCU film, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings looks visually fantastic. Bill Pope, known for Baby Driver and The Matrix movies, has handled the cinematographer and has again done a swell job. The quality of VFX is also great, and if the film disappoints in other respects, we can be sure that it will more than make up for all that with spectacle.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will release on September 3, 2021
