A brand new poster for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings shows Simu Liu wielding the eponymous rings.
Marvel Studios is set to release Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in less than a month, making it the first blockbuster to kick off the Fall movie season. The film stars rising star Simu Liu, who plays Shang-Chi, son of The Mandarin, who happens to be the leader of the terrorist organization The Ten Rings. The organization first appeared in Iron Man.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is set to focus on how the titular character comes to terms with his father’s shady happenings and how he ultimately utilizes the power of the Ten Rings. In anticipation of the film’s early September release, Marvel Studios has released a new one-sheet focusing solely on Simu Liu’s character wielding half of the ten rings.
It appears that the poster is directly lifted from the film’s final battle, which sees the Simu Liu character battling his father, as they both try to utilize the power of their family heirloom. The fight between the father and son has been teased in recent trailers and TV spots.
Here is the synopsis for Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings:
“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.”
Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton from a script written by David Callaham, the Marvel film stars Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Tony Leung, Ronny Chieng, and Dallas Liu. The upcoming film will hit theaters on September 3, 2021.
