Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings mark Marvel’s first Asian lead and mostly Asian cast.
The film stays true to the Asian myths and customs that drive its story, as lead actor Simu Liu told The Hollywood Reporter:
“There are many moments, and there are many characters that you root for and fall in love with. It really is a celebration of Marvel and of superheroes but also of Asian myths. That’s something that we haven’t seen before in a superhero movie.”
The movie, Marvel’s first theater-exclusive release in two years, is set to release on September 3rd.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be the second movie in phase four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, preceded by Black Widow in July and followed by Eternals in November and Spider-Man: No Way Home in December. Are you excited for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings?
