We got Shang Chi trailer 2 from Marvel and feel like Marvel phase 4 Shang Chi will be a huge hit for Marvel. Early on Friday — just prior to a big NBA playoffs game — Marvel Studios unveiled a two-minute trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, its first movie with an Asian superhero in the lead. It’s going to be Father v Son, where Father is Mandarin who murder people. In the trailer, we encountered many breath-taking scenes that made us shocked for some minutes. To know more about those, read the full article.
Father v Son- Mandarin v Shang-Chi
In Shang chi trailer 2, Wenwu explains to son- “Throughout my life, the Ten Rings gave our family power”.
In addition, he added- “If you want them to be yours one day, you have to show me you’re strong enough to carry them.”
Elsewhere, Jiang Nan (Mother of Shang-Chi) tells an older Shang-Chi: “You are a product of all who came before you. The legacy of your family. You are your mother. And whether you like it or not, you are also your father.”
We then see Shang-Chi training as a teen, and later being put to the test against his father’s own men — that naturally doesn’t sit well with Shang-Chi.
Till now, we’ve seen many fights that include brother to brother fighting, but this time it’s again blood v blood but this time it’s father v son.
Shang- Chi and father battle
When Shang-Chi realised he made him strong so as to pass Ten Rings business to him and murder people, he said- “You’re just a criminal who murders people.” He gets a telling off from Wenwu (Leung): “Be careful how you speak to me, boy.”
Shang-Chi is essentially trying to run from his past, as he says later: “I thought I could change my name, start a new life. But I could never escape his shadow.”
The Shang-Chi trailer also gives us a peek at Jiang Nan’s superpowers, and what seems like a duel of sorts with Wenwu and his Ten Rings.
Abomination v Wong
Now the very exciting thing comes at the end. We encountered a fight between Abomination and Wong. Yes, in Shang Chi trailer 2, we saw the return of Abomination, the main villain of Incredible Hulk.
The return of him may be a shock but MCU might be starting something from the Shang Chi 10 rings movie that could lead us to Thunderbolts.
In addition to Liu, Leung, Yeoh, and Roth, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings also stars Awkwafina as Shang-Chi’s American friend Katy, Meng’er Zhang as Shang-Chi’s estranged sister Xialing, Fala Chen as Jiang Li, Florian Munteanu as mercenary Razor Fist, Ronny Chieng as Shang-Chi’s friend Jon Jon, and Benedict Wong as Wong from Doctor Strange. There’s also the masked villain Death Dealer, though the actor remains unknown.
Directed and Penned by Destin Daniel Cretton and David Callaham, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be out on September 3.
