Marvel’s new Shang-Chi trailer brings the fantastical fury

Marvel’s martial arts master makes movie magic

Marvel’s new trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings gives an even better look at the greatest martial artist in the Marvel universe. We get fight clubs, magical rings, and even a giant underwater dragon.

Simu Li plays Shang-Chi, son of Wenwu, the powerful and evil leader of the Ten Rings terrorist organization. Rounding out the cast are Awkwafina as Katy, Shang-Chi’s friend from outside the supernatural assassin world; Meng’er Zhang as Xialing, Chang-Chi’s sister; Michelle Yeoh as Jiang Nan; Fala Chen as Jiang Li; Florian Munteanu as Marvel Comics villain Razor Fist; and an undisclosed actor as the Marvel character Death Dealer.

Tony Leung plays Wenwu, the true identity of the Mandarin, the secretive leader of the Ten Rings criminal organization. Introduced in the Iron Man trilogy, the Mandarin and the Ten Rings were thought to have been a front for Aldrich Killian’s plan for global domination. In Shang-Chi the truth will turn out to be much more fantastical.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will release in theaters on Sept. 3.
