Actor Florian Munteanu, who plays Razor Fist in Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings, has sparked a bigger backstory for his character in the film’s sequel. Shang-chi introduces a new hero to the MCU in the eponymous martial arts master Simu Liu. The film sees him drawn into the underground world of the Ten Rings organization led by his father Wenwu (Tony Leung), also known as the true Mandarin, who wishes to use the Ten Rings for an undertaking that could have devastating consequences on the world.
Munteanu, a former heavyweight boxer, plays one of Wenwu’s henchmen who has a machete for an arm. He is initially sent to San Francisco to retrieve the Shang-Chi pendant his mother gave him, leading to the spectacular bus fight early in the film. Razor Fist is also later seen as part of the Ten Rings invasion team sent to Ta Lo. Although he initially presents himself as a typical henchman, he quickly proves to be memorable and even a bit more morally aware than was initially thought, urging his men to help the people of Ta Lo when the fallout from Wenwu’s plan fully materializes. .
Talking to MR Before the release of the film, Munteanu stated that, when it comes to Razor Fist, “there’s a lot of backstory that hasn’t been told yet. “ He added that this is something you can build upon in a Shang-chi sequel or other movie within the MCU. Read Munteanu’s full statement below:
“Oh yeah, that was always the plan, to give him a much bigger role. And we’ll see where that leads. There’s a lot of backstory that hasn’t been told yet, because obviously this is an origin story about Shang-Chi. We’ll see what happens in the future with Razor Fist in the MCU. “
It is understandable why the Razor Fist backstory is not explored in Shang-Chi. As Munteanu says, “this is an origin story about Shang-Chi”, so naturally the movie spends a lot of time focusing on that character’s story with his family. Taking the time to show each supporting character’s backstory would only bog down the story. Still, that’s not to say that it wouldn’t be interesting to learn more about the character, including how he received his trademark weapon and became involved in the Ten Rings organization.
Featuring Razor Fist featured as part of the new Ten Rings of Xialing (Meng’er Zhang) at Shang-chi‘s In the post-credit scene, there are clear signs that the character could return. Also, with the scene promising that “The Ten Rings will return” It seems more than likely that fans will see him and his cohorts appear somehow elsewhere in the MCU, possibly even earlier. Shang-Chi 2. Hopefully he will have a bigger role allowing Munteanu to show more of the character and delve deeper into his backstory should that opportunity present itself.
