Marvel Studios delighted fans earlier today with a surprising first look teaser trailer for the it upcoming Phase IV martial arts action epic Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings! To go along with the tease, new key art has dropped as well which has star Simu Liu front and center and ready for business. Stop reading and check it all out above as well as below!
Filming for the movie actually started in February of last year but was out on hold when COVID paid a nasty visit. Resuming production in August and finally wrapped last October. The release date has shuffled around quite a bit as well but the newest launch date is September 3rd just a few months after Black Widow hits in July.
Helmed by Destin Daniel Cretton, it produced by Kevin Feige and Jonathan Schwartz, along with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and Charles Newirth serving as executive producers. Cretton also penned the script with David Callaham and Andrew Lanham
Clocking in at a little over 2 minutes, there’s no shortage of martial arts wizardry to wet our appetites and Liu looks fantastic and I can’t wait for more. There is a lot of CGI of course but hopefully, Marvel let’s the talented cast do their thing. Hopefully there’s more of the scenes where Liu double punches and double kicks two opponents and less green screen chaos. A shot of Adrenalized martial action is just what the MCU needed!
Check out the new teaser below which is released on Liu’s very own birthday!
