Black Panther had a brutal impact on a film and social level, which is why Marvel Studios wants the same to happen with Shang-Chi.
If the plans don’t change Marvel Studios, the movie Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings It will be released on July 9, 2021. A film geared towards Chinese audiences that will bring the first martial arts tournament to the franchise. But they also want him to convey great respect and love for Asian culture similar to what he did Black Panther with Africa. Especially so that this new story transcends beyond the film show.
A Marvel Studios It does really well in markets as large and powerful as China, although team movies tend to do better than individual character movies. Therefore, they have decided that Shang-Chi will play a very important role in the future of the Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe. Since he will occupy a position similar to the one he was initially supposed to have Black Panther as one of the most important recurring figures, something that has changed after Chadwick Boseman passed away a few months ago. Since for now they do not know how the fans will take over.
Although it is possible that Shang-Chi don’t end up having the same kind of cultural, social, box office, or awards season impact that Black Panther from Ryan Coogler, at least Marvel Studios seeks to inspire the same number of people around the world.
What is the movie about?
Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings It is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton (The lives of Grace, A Matter of Justice) and the cast include Simu Liu como Shang-Chi, Awkwafina like Katy and Fala Chen like Jiang Li. For now we have very few details of the story, but it is assumed that the protagonist joins the clandestine organization of the Ten Rings and must fight in a tournament to gain more power. In between, he must face his past. Probably Marvel Studios will show the first trailer during the Super Bowl to be held on February 7.
