Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings Star Simu Liu wants Marvel Studios to adapt an aspect of a certain comic book story so that Shang-Chi and Spider-Man can unite in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Shang-chi he’s ready to introduce his main character, who is also known as Marvel’s Kung Fu Master. Director Daniel Cretton’s film will star Liu as Shang-Chi, Marvel’s first Asian lead, alongside a predominantly Asian and Asian-American cast that includes Awkwafina, Tony Leung, Michelle Yeoh, Benedict Wong and Fala Chen. Shang-chi It will be released in theaters on September 3 before also being available on Disney + 45 days later.
Shang-Chi was trained to be a ruthless assassin from birth. After spending a decade of his life in San Francisco, the film will see him forced to confront his past and the Ten Rings, a criminal organization run by his father, the real Mandarin (Leung), not Ben Kingsley’s character from iron Man 3. With the help of his estranged sister, Shang-Chi will fight to claim the Ten Rings responsible for the power of his family. Without revealing much, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has said that Shang-chi He’ll fit into Phase 4 of the MCU and set up his character to return sooner rather than later.
in a Screen rant exclusive interview with Liu de la Shang-chi press conference, the actor spoke about the future of his character. In particular, he was asked where he would like his character to go next. Liu said he wants his character to team up with Spider-Man to adapt the plot of the “Spider-Island” comics. Read what Liu said below:
“There is a very famous story where Shang-Chi and Spider-Man have a little team moment,” Liu said. “I don’t know if you’re familiar with this, but in the comics, Spider-Man needs a little help with his martial arts; needs to brush up a bit. And it says, yes, I will help you, I will develop a whole style based on your skills, and they call it the Way of the Spider. I’m showing off as a great comic book nerd. But that’s something I really want to see and I really hope Kevin [Feige] he gets to see this interview so he can put it in a future movie somewhere. “
During the 2011 Marvel Comics “Spider-Island” plot, several hundred New Yorkers, including prominent crime figures, manifest spider powers. As the Avengers attempt to defend the city against villains with spider powers, Peter Parker / Spider-Man loses his spider-sense. Or, as he’s affectionately called in the MCU, his “Peter Tingling.” To make up for this loss, Madame Spider recommends that Peter train with Shang-Chi. Together, they develop a style of martial arts known as the Way of the Spider, a hybrid version of Peter’s own fighting style and the martial arts of Shang-Chi.
Next Black widow, Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings will be the first Phase 4 film to take place after Avengers Endgame. The rest of Marvel’s Phase 4 roster will include movies like Eternal, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Insanity, Thor: love and thunder, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. While some of those movies will obviously heavily influence the recently released multiverse, it’s unclear how. Shang-chi will allude to that story. Regardless, Liu did most of his own stunts in what is shaping up to be a century-long epic featuring some of the best action sequences from the MCU, paying homage to classic martial arts movies. If the next Spiderman movie brings together several Spider-Men, it might teach them all a thing or two.
