Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings teaser trailer, easter eggs, references and more...

So, this is what Shang-Chi looks like. Asian-Canadian star Simu Liu just tweeted a first look at the 'Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' poster on Monday and the very first teaser trailer is out...

 

Easter eggs

Marvel's latest martial arts hero, Shang-Chi, is finally here. The trailer serves as a short introduction as he faces off against the mysterious Ten Rings organization and its true leader, the Mandarin. In order to confront the past that he thought he left behind, Shang-Chi is lured into the wed of the mysterious Ten Rings organization. The Ten Rings have been strategically placed in a number of previous Marvel productions, including Iron Man (2008), but Shang-Chi promises to reveal the actual group for the first time.

The film stars Tony Leung as Wenwu, Awkwafina as Shang-Chi's friend Katy and Michelle Yeoh as Jiang Nan, as well as Fala Chen, Meng'er Zhang, Florian Munteanu and Ronny Chieng. The movie is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and produced by Kevin Feige and Jonathan Schwartz, with Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso and Charles Newirth serving as executive producers.

"When you look at the character of Shang-Chi through the comic books going back to the '70s and '80s, the fact that he existed and the fact that he was an Asian character was amazing. But at the same time, there are aspects of that portrayal of him that maybe could feel a little stereotypical. So when we first started to map out who this character was and what his journey was going to be over the course of this film, we were all very sensitive to not have it go into stereotypical territory," Simu Liu said to Entertainment Weekly in an interview.

Who is Shang Chi?

The Chinese-Canadian actor, Simu Liu, was surprised when Marvel finally decided to produce 'Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings'. This is Marvel Cinematic Universe's first Asian-led, martial arts extravaganza. It seems like we weren't the only ones surprised as Liu took to Twitter to tease the reveal of the poster, promising fans that the trailer would be coming in a matter of weeks.

 

Twitter reaction

The Shang-Chi trailer instantly became the talk of Twitter as well.

"Shang-Chi just outsold Netflix's Iron Fist in only 2 minutes," one tweet read.

 

"The action in this movie... Shang-Chi is the moment," said another.

 

"Marvel never disappoints us with the casting or the comic accuracy costumes," one tweet noted.

"And also action scenes are going to be epic in this movie because not just ONE we will see Shang-Chi fighting THREE villains in this movie."

With violence on the rise in the U.S amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Shangi-Chi notably puts Asian-Americans front and centre as the heroes of their own stories. Liu addressed this topic in an interview with Variety last month.

"I've heard the classic 'go back to China' more times than I can count," he revealed. "The truth is that Asian people have been targeted and discriminated against for far, far longer than COVID has been around. These recent attacks, fuelled by racist rhetoric in the wake of the coronavirus, are yet another reminder that we are only seen as the foreigners, the unwelcome presence... the other."
