Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the 25th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, comes from director Destin Daniel Cretton, and while the trailer features an enormous amount of ass-kicking martial arts, I expect that a movie from the director of Short Term 12 and Just Mercy will probably have a fair amount of emotion coursing throughout it, as well.
Shang-Chi is also the first Marvel with an Asian lead, and the Ten Rings of the title is expected to tie it into the MCU through the 10 rings to the Mandarin (a longtime foe of Iron Man played here by Tony Leung). An almost inevitable member of next year’s Pajiba 10, Simu Liu takes the lead, co-starring alongside Awkwafina, Ronny Chieng, and Michelle Yeoh, among others.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings arrives in theaters (and if we’re lucky, premium Disney+) on September 3rd.
