Simu Liu stars as the titular character in Marvel’s upcoming film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, hitting theaters on September 3. The film will mark Short Term 12 director Destin Daniel Cretton’s first Marvel project.
The story follows Shang-Chi, a skilled martial artist, being drawn into the Ten Rings organization, leading him to confront a past he thought was far behind him.
In addition to Simu Liu as our hero, the film’s ensemble cast also includes Awkwafina, Tony Leung, and Michelle Yeoh.
Cretton was selected to direct the film in March of 2019, with principal photography beginning in February of 2020. Although put off by the pandemic for 6 months, filming managed to resume in August and wrap in October.
The official trailer shows us much more into what we can expect from our characters, the world they find themselves in, and the trouble that comes along the way.
