The trailer acts as a brief introduction to Shang-Chi as he battles the enigmatic Ten Rings organisation and its leader, the real Mandarin.
The film is based on the Marvel Comics character Shang-Chi, a martial artist who has been trained to be an assassin by the Ten Rings terror group since childhood, who chose to live a simple life in San Francisco. It draws influence from the more recent Shang-Chi comic book series.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be the first Marvel Cinematic Universe film to feature an Asian protagonist and an Asian filmmaking team.
Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings stars Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, who must confront the past he thought he left behind when he is drawn into the web of the mysterious Ten Rings organization. The film also stars Tony Leung as Wenwu, Awkwafina as Shang-Chi’s friend Katy and Michelle Yeoh as Jiang Nan, as well as Fala Chen, Meng’er Zhang, Florian Munteanu and Ronny Chieng.
Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and produced by Kevin Feige and Jonathan Schwartz, with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and Charles Newirth serving as executive producers. David Callaham & Destin Daniel Cretton & Andrew Lanham wrote the screenplay for the film.
