Marvel Studios has released the brand-new trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and the hype can’t get big enough to satisfy this film’s needs. It releases September 3, and Marvel fans have a lot to be excited about. Fin Fang Foom, Wong, and Abomination all make appearances in this latest trailer, so let’s break this down.
The trailer starts off with Wenwu/The Mandarin (Tony Leung) narrating. He describes the family’s past with the Ten Rings . The Ten Rings (the rings themselves, not the organization) are shown in action multiple times, with Wenwu once destroying an enemy military with them.
Shang-Chi calls Wenwu “a criminal”, indicating that the two have a rocky relationship. In a brief shot, Wenwu is fighting Shang-Chi with the Ten Rings (which are actually bracelets), and Shang-Chi is countering with some sort of superpowered abilities.
Fin Fang Foom makes an appearance underwater around the 1:36 mark of the trailer, while Shang-Chi looks on in fright. It’s unknown how the mystic dragon will fit into the film’s plot, but some have theorized that he will work with Wenwu. Abomination and Wong appear at the 1:51 mark, duking it out at a fight club, where Shang-Chi, Katy, and Jon Jon, Razor Fist, and Xialing are attending.
Overall, it’s a wonderful trailer, despite the mediocre score. Destin Cretton showcases the acting abilities of Tony Leung and Simu Liu in this piece of art, and reveals quite a few BIG spoilers. You can watch the full trailer below.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings releases exclusively in theaters on September 3, 2021.
