Marvel has launched a new TV promo for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, their forthcoming superhero film. The video gives viewers an inside look at the strong 10 rings and how our protagonist, Shang-Chi (Simu Liu), learns to use them. Shang-Chi enters a battle ring without his shirt on in the new commercial. Perhaps to soothe his fears, Awkwafina, who plays his friend Katy, cracks a joke about it. The action then shifts to the same tram fight we’ve seen in practically all of the movie’s teasers and trailers so far.
Shang-father Chi’s explains how the ten rings have granted their family ‘legendary power,’ and challenges him to prove that he is deserving of it. He doesn’t appear to be in the mood to prove anything, though. He declares, “I am nothing like you.” There’s some CGI action underwater, a ninja army, a helicopter flight, some drifting automobiles, and a few levitating rings thrown in for good measure.
Shang-Chi is the first Marvel film to have an Asian protagonist, directed by Destin Daniel Cretton.
“Shang-fundamental Chi’s struggle in life is rooted in not knowing who he really is,” Cretton said in a statement.
He must learn to take responsibility for every aspect of himself. He won’t be able to fulfil his full potential unless he allows himself to look at everything—the good, the bad, the light, and the dark—and own it all.”
Michelle Yeoh, Fala Chen, Meng’er Zhang, Florian Munteanu, and Ronny Chieng also star in Shang-Chi as Jiang Nan, Fala Chen, Meng’er Zhang, Florian Munteanu, and Ronny Chieng.
