A new clip from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings reveals a hilarious cameo from a Spider-Man: Homecoming character.
The press tour for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has officially begun after the premiere earlier this week. Fans and critics who managed to see the film early have praised Marvel’s latest for being filled with intense, inspired action sequences and emotional family beats. Simu Liu stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to talk about his debut as a Marvel hero with the film coming out early next month. Liu also brought with him an action-packed clip that teases just how awesome the film’s action sequences are. Eagle-eyed Marvel heads, however, will spot a familiar character from Spider-Man: Homecoming occupying the scene’s background.
The lengthy clip takes place on an LRT where Shang-Chi and Katy are being pursued by assassins. There, Shang-Chi reveals his might and fights off the would-be killers. With the action picking up, the camera then quickly cuts to a passenger live-streaming the fight as he delivers hilarious commentary. Hardcore Marvel fans will know that this passenger is none other than a street vendor from Spider-Man: Homecoming who tells Spidey to “do a flip”.
The Spider-Man: Homecoming character is seen at the 10:06 mark.
The cameo is likely a deliberate one as Marvel has become more consistent in building out its universe through subtle cameos and references in the last few years. Seeing as this scene takes place in San Francisco, it’s interesting how the New York vendor either made the move to California or is just vacationing there. Hopefully, we see more of the Spider-Man: Homecoming character throughout the MCU.
Here is the synopsis for Shang-Chi and the Legend of The Ten Rings:
