Movies are back, baby! At least, Marvel is ready to get you back into movie theaters with their newest superhero, martial arts master Shang-Chi. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will welcome Simu Liu as the MCU’s first Asian hero to headline a Marvel movie, along with Awkwafina, Michelle Yeoh and Tony Leung Chiu-wai rounding out the tale of a son facing off against his evil father. Say what you will about the MCU, but these guys know their way around an electric teaser.
Shang-Chi has been a fixture of Marvel Comics since the 1970s, when the comic book company attempted to capitalize on the popularity of kung-fu movies with their own crack at a martial arts pro-turned-costumed Avenger. Although never quite as popular as Spider-Man or the Hulk, Shang-Chi’s been a staple of the comic book world ever since and now, he’s making his long awaited cinematic debut. Get ready. This one’s gonna be big, and it’ll be in theaters(!) on September 3.
