New “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” Video Teases a Power Stronger Than the Avengers—Combined
Just how powerful are the ten rings? In a new video released by Marvel, the power of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings titular magical trinkets are said to be more potent than any force in the universe. When this statement is made by Michelle Yeoh’s Ying Nan, who do we see? The assorted Avengers, including one very ticked off Hulk, making plain just how much power the MCU’s newest member, Simu Liu’s Shang-Chi, will wield.
By now you’ve likely heard that the early reactions to director Destin Daniel Cretton’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings have been raves. Cretton and his star, Liu, are introducing the MCU’s first-ever Asian superhero, adding extra weight to the already tall order of creating a moving, momentous single film that needs to exist within, and expands upon, the massive Marvel Cinematic Universe. That they’ve succeeded is exciting enough, but what’s more, the critics are suggesting that the film not only stands on its own but feels like a new kind of Marvel movie. With Chloé Zhao’s Eternals, due out on November 3, already creating buzz as being something new in the MCU, you can’t help but be excited at the way this juggernaut cinematic mega-franchise is expanding.
Check out the video hinting at the ten rings power here:
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings centers on a ferocious family struggle. Shang-Chi (Liu) is trained by his father, Wenwu (Leung) from a young age to become a peerless fighter, yet once he comes of age, he refuses to join the mysterious Ten Rings Organization—the very same shadowy syndicate that once kidnapped Tony Stark—creating a power struggle between his powerful father and the budding could-be superhero. Wenwu is not merely the leader of a criminal organization—he is the real Mandarin, one of Marvel’s most iconic supervillains, and the fight brewing between father and son will have massive implications for the larger MCU.
