A new trailer for one of 2021’s upcoming MCU movies has dropped unexpectedly, and there’s lots to get excited about for superhero stans.
The trailer for Marvel’s martial-arts movie Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has just been released, featuring Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Michelle Yeoh and many more familiar faces. You can check it out below:
If the trailer is anything to go by, then we’ll be in store for stunning one-on-one fight sequences, massive epic battles and a mystery entwining the whole thing, along with a new superhero joining the ranks of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What more could you possibly want?
The director, Destin Daniel Cretton, has previously said about the film: “We wanted to make sure that Shang-Chi was just like any of us. I want to watch this movie and say, ‘Yes, that’s how I feel. I feel out of place sometimes, and I cover it up with humour.’ He’s a kid who is out of his element and a fish out of water here in the U.S., and he’s covering it up with this charisma that I find very relatable.” This seems a bit reminiscent of fan-favourite Thor’s awkward but endearing introduction to the MCU, so we hope for a similar mix of fighting and fun from this film.
2020 was a lean year for Marvel megafans, but so far 2021 is making up for it in spades. Not only has Disney Plus launched new and exclusive series such as WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (with Loki and Hawkeye still to come), but there are more movies in the form of Black Widow and Eternals on the horizon. Let’s just hope that some cinemas will have survived the coronavirus restrictions so that these movies can be seen on the big screen where they belong.
