With Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the Marvel cinematic universe will extend into all new areas. And bring a new hero to the blockbuster film franchise and be confident that he will be sticking around.
The martial artist trained as a living weapon by his father, Wenwu, who is more known by his moniker, The Mandarin, plays the same character. Simu Liu’s name is a martial artist.
This original story is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton Just Mercy and explains the complicated relationship between daddy and son, while Shang-Chi also promises exciting fighting scenes as he contends with some tremendous enemies.
Marvel has planned a lot for the character, producer Kevin Feige telling Extra that he will emerge soon in a different movie.
