First Trailer for Marvel's 'Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings'
"I trained you… so the most dangerous people in the world couldn't kill you. Son… it's time for you to take your place by my side." Marvel Studios has debuted a teaser trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the first Marvel movie featuring an Asian superhero character. This is one of those "who are you?" trailers introducing the character to the world. Simu Liu plays Shang-Chi, a skilled martial artist who was trained to be an assassin by the Ten Rings organization since childhood and has tried a create a normal life for himself in America. The cast includes Awkwafina, Michelle Yeoh, Florian Munteanu, Tony Chiu-Wai Leung, Ronny Chieng, Fala Chen, Dallas Liu. This is the first Marvel film directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, of Short Term 12 and The Glass Castle previously. And it's an impressive teaser! This got my attention, I'm curious to see more. Not the best dialogue in this, but everything else looks awesome.
