Warning: Contains SPOILERS for Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings.
Wong (Benedict Wong) fights the Abomination (Tim Roth) in Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten ringsBut where do the pair go after their battle? One of the biggest surprises in marketing Shang-chi was the reveal of Abomination’s return, and the character, whose real name is Emil Blonsky, hadn’t been seen since the 2008s. The incredible Hulk. While Marvel Phase 4 seeks to bring back elements of that largely forgotten MCU movie, then the return of Abomination is a key part of that, although its role in Shang-chi it is relatively small.
The appearance of the abomination in Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings he’s only slightly bigger (though no less entertaining) than what was shown in the trailers, as he fights Wong in the underground fighting club run by Xu Xialing (Meng’er Zhang). Wong brings out the best in the super solder serum enhanced individual, but what’s more surprising is that they’re on friendly terms after their scrap. Wong jokes with Abomination and suggests that there will be a rematch, before opening a portal to take him somewhere.
It is not confirmed where he is taking Wong Abomination after his Shang-chi fight, and there’s only a brief glimpse of the location, which is largely nondescript. However, based on what can be seen, combined with what is known of the Abomination arc and the possible future of the MCU, the most likely option is the raft. The upper-level prison is designed to house those with superpowers or superhuman abilities, so it would make sense for the Abomination to be locked there. Blonsky was previously taken to a SHIELD facility in Alaska after his initial arrest, where he was held in a cryogenic cell, but since the organization is largely being replaced in Phase 4, then it is more appropriate that he be transferred to another. place, and the Raft is the best place for him.
The Raft was not only briefly home to members of Team Captain America, but it is where Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl) resides afterwards. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Zemo is expected to start putting together the MCU’s Thunderbolts team, and Abomination being on the Raft would be the perfect setup for him to join the roster of reformed supervillains. The abomination is expected to return in the future of the MCU, both in She hulk and beyond, so positioning him on the Raft allows for easy connections with other characters, with the potential for him to bond with General Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) and Zemo, as he was instrumental in dispatching members of Team Cap. . there.
Of course, it is not entirely clear that Wong is taking Abomination to the raft. The two are on friendly terms, and it seems like he’s changed his ways a lot, while it can also be tricky just getting Abomination out of prison to compete in underground fighting tournaments like those in Shang-chi. Instead, it may be that Wong is aiding Abomination in some way and providing shelter in the Sanctum Sanctorum, but either way it appears that Abomination (with or without Wong) has a role to play in the future of the MCU after Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings.
