A new Shang-Chi clip revealed a cameo from a Black Widow character.
Marvel Studios is known for making numerous connections to different aspects of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in each of their films and television series, and the release of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is no exception. While the film serves as a solid standalone story in the MCU, the connections are still there, with one particular connection to Black Widow.
In a new clip for Shang-Chi, we see stunt performer Jade Xu reprise her role as one of the many Widows we see in Black Widow. During a watch party for Black Widow in July, Kevin Feige revealed that we would be seeing her in a future film:
Jade Xu was one of the many Widows that were set free in Black Widow during the film’s climax. Given the history of what happens to Widows, it’s exciting to see that she is thriving in the MCU as she battles against an Extremis-powered individual.
