Marvel Studios has dropped an action-packed teaser trailer for Simu Liu’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

The first official footage from the Simu Liu starrer Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has finally been revealed. Earlier today, Liu shared a poster for the highly-aniticipated superhero film, showing his character suited up and ready for action. A slew of images also offered fans a look at some of the film’s supporting characters, played by Awkwafina and Meng’er Zhang.

With Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings now expected to hit theaters this September following multiple delays due to the ongoing pandemic, Marvel Studios has released a teaser trailer for its first Asian superhero movie. The sneak peek is packed with action sequences and also offers fans a glimpse at Tony Leung’s Wenwu, a.k.a. The Mandarin. You can watch the Shang-Chi teaser below.

Introduced in Special Marvel Edition #15 in December 1973, Shang-Chi is a skilled martial artist raised in an isolated compound located in China and trained by his father Fu Manchu, a Chinese crimelord and immortal sorcerer who repeatedly attempted to conquer the world. When he was finally allowed to venture into the outside world to do his father’s bidding, Shang-Chi learned about his father’s evil ways and faked his own death before embarking on a mission to take down Fu Manchu’s criminal empire.

Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton from a script written by David Callaham, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings stars Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Tony Leung, Ronny Chieng and Dallas Liu. Here’s the official synopsis for the Marvel Studios project:

“Simu Liu stars as Shang-Chi in Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings. Shang-Chi must confront the past he thought he left behind when he is drawn into the web of the mysterious Ten Rings organization.”

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is scheduled to hit theaters on September 3, 2021. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest developments regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
