“Son, it’s time for you to take your place by my side.”
Aaaaaah YEAH! Ready for some seriously fun Marvel martial arts? (Sorry Iron Fist. But points for trying.) Because Rings looks like it’s gonna be an action throw down with tons of fun, fantastical Hong Kong studio coolness. Synopsis!
When Shang-Chi is drawn into the clandestine Ten Rings organization, he is forced to confront the past he thought he left behind.
Simu Liu looks totally badass as Shang-Chi, and from what brief bits of fight choreography the trailer shows, he can really move. (And anyone else getting serious Nobody vibes from the bus fight?) I’m looking forward to seeing Akwafina as Shang-Chi’s friend/sidekick Katy. Mostly because I’m having Crazy Rich Asians withdrawal, and need to see her on the big screen again. (Get that sequel up and running, Hollywood!)
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings hits theaters September 3rd, 2021.
