Marvel Studios has released the first teaser trailer and poster for its upcoming martial arts action-thriller Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and it looks stunning and I’m super hyped for it! This looks like a badass and wonderfully made martial arts movie!
The film was directed by Destin Daniel Cretton (Short Term 12, The Glass Castle) from a script written by Dave Callaham (Wonder Woman 1984, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2). It stars Sam Liu, who seems great in the role. He’s joined by Awkwafina as Katy and Tony Leung as Wenwu. Michelle Yeoh is also in the movie.

Shang-Chi first arrived in Special Marvel Edition #15 in December 1973 and was designed by Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin. The character is defined as a spy, a romantic, a philosopher, and an Avenger and is one of the best martial artists in the Marvel universe.
“modernize the hero to avoid stereotypes that many comic characters of that era were saddled with. The comic launched around the time that Enter the Dragon became a global sensation and martial arts films raged.”
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be released on September 3rd.
