Simu Liu’s Shang-Chi is the newest Avenger as formally declared by Marvel Studios. At this point, the latest chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, is playing in theaters. Another TV spot released by Marvel to promote the release introduces Shang-Chi as “Marvel’s new Avenger,”making his inclusion in the iconic superhero team official.
“In terms of what’s next, I know what’s on my mind is the same as what’s on everybody else’s mind. And hopefully, there’s an Avengers in the future, somewhere,” Liu, who makes his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Shang-Chi, previously told THR about a future Avengers 5. “Obviously, I don’t know anything about that, but being such a big fan of the whole franchise, I know that that’s the gold star. All of the media frenzy that surrounds one of those properties is going to be a whole beast unto itself, so it’s certainly what I hope for.”
In light of the positive reception of Shang-Chi, Marvel head Kevin Feige told ComicBook.com: “The early reactions to the characters and to [Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings] itself gives me great hope that people will want to see more of these characters. We certainly have many ideas of where to take them and where to put them… We know the movie’s working when it’s not just the title character that people ask about, but it is the co-stars or the supporting players that people ask about.”
Feige added: “And in this movie in particular, that’s heartening because we think they’re spectacular. And we think they have great potential in the future.”
Destin Daniel Cretton coordinates Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings utilizing a content co-composed with Dave Callaham and Andrew Lanham. Simu Liu stars lead role as Shang-Chi, denoting the Marvel comic book character’s introduction in the MCU. Additionally featuring as Awkwafina as Katy, Meng-er Zhang as Xu Xialing, Fala Chen as Ying Li, Florian Munteanu as Razor Fist, Benedict Wong as Wong, Michelle Yeoh as Ying Nan, Ben Kingsley as Trevor Slattery, and Tony Leung as Xu Wenwu.
Everyone can assume Avengers 5 is unavoidable, yet it won’t be hanging around for quite a while to come. Wonder Studios will require time to collect another group for the following large hybrid to fill in as successfully as Avengers: Endgame, and acquiring Shang-Chi to feature his own independent film is an incredible beginning. The remainder of the titles of the MCU’s Phase Four have likewise been as of now delineated and there’s no room on the timetable as of now for something like Avengers 5. Eternals and Spider-Man: No Way Home are coming in the not so distant future with 2022’s releases including new independent continuations for Doctor Strange, Thor, Black Panther, and Captain Marvel.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is currently playing in theaters. In contrast to Black Widow, it was not given a day and date release on Disney+, as it will initially have a 45-day run exclusive to theaters. The new TV spot for the film comes to us from Marvel Entertainment on YouTube.
