Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: all about its post-credit scenes
As we told you in our review of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which is set about five years after Avengers Infinity War; not long after Avengers: Endgame, we really liked it. Because it helps us understand what the objective of Marvel Studios is in the face of an imminent multiverse, as Loki anticipated in his series or as it is made clear both in the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home and in the title of the next film from Doctor Strange.
Shang-Chi’s first post-credit scene
The first post-credit scene Shang-Chi is the best of the two and takes place in the middle of the credits, a few minutes after the film ends. Is about a direct continuation of the movie and shows us Shang-Chi and Katy accompanying Wong behind the portal that opens in the cafeteria at the end of the film. It is then that they appear in the New York Sanctum (Sanctum Sanctorum) and are explained what is currently happening in the superheroic world.
Shang-Chi, Katy, Wong, Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel) and Bruce Banner (Hulk) analyze a urgent threat for which they will need help. They identify that Ten rings They are not of alien origin, but their power – perceived from hundreds of kilometers away – is emitting a signal. It seems clear that Shang-Chi will soon be part of The Avengers, whenever they reunite. Bruce says, “Welcome to the circus”; and they make it clear to Shang-Chi and Katy that their lives are going to change forever.
Points of Interest: Bruce Manner appears in his human form; We do not know how he has reversed his Hulk status. On the other hand, Carol Danvers’ hair appears much longer, her aesthetics have changed slightly. This confirms that at least a few months have passed from Endgame to this movie.
Our conclusion: the movie takes place after WandaVision and after Spider-Man: Far From Home, but before the next Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Second post-credit scene from Shang-Chi
This post-credit scene confirms what many were waiting for: there will be more content from Shang-Chi. Serie? Film? Xialing, Shang-Chi’s sister, arrives at her father’s secret base and take control of your army of the Ten Rings. She has power, she is the new head of the place, and she allows women to also take part in the team. So she has human power with hundreds of people in her army; but Shang-Chi is the one with the Ten Rings. What will the future bring us? What will be the role of Xialing?
