The first teaser of Marvel Studios’ highly anticipated film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is out and looks exciting to say the least. In the clip we see a reluctant hero trying to turn his back on his legacy until fate and his father knock on the door.
Unsurprisingly, Marvel has turned visual effects upside down. The action choreography looks great too. In addition to Simu Liu, who plays the leading role, the singer and actor Awkwafina also performs excitingly. She seems to be the one who is going to provide comic book relief in an otherwise high-octane movie about belonging and “fighting the good fight”.

Previously, Simu Liu had used his social media handles to share the movie’s first look poster. The actor had given the contribution a title: “Who said that you can only get presents on your birthday? Today I give you your VERY FIRST LOOK at the teaser poster for @ShangChi and the legend of the ten rings !! Comes to theaters on September 3rd (trailer drops in a few weeks). We’re almost there folks! (sic). “
In an earlier interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Canadian-Chinese star explained why he took up the Marvel project in the first place: “The most exciting thing about this character was that his backstory had never been told before. We know so many different versions of Batman’s genesis, including how his parents were murdered when he was very young. We know Peter Parker, who was bitten by a radioactive spider and loses his uncle. Shang-Chi’s story is very unknown to most socialmediagossips in the world, so we had a lot of freedom and creative freedom to make it the way we wanted. “
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will hit theaters on September 3, 2021.
