So Marvel, in their quest to keep our eyeballs on their content at all times in 2021, have just dropped the teaser trailer for their next movie, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. I have to admit, it looks epic. A cross between Dr Strange and Black Panther – in terms of tone, mystical elements, family saga, funky technology and cultural roots.
Our hero, Shang-Chi, is played by Simu Lui, and he looks the part. I’m also excited to finally see Awkwafina in the MCU. She’s great and it’s about time they welcomed her to the gang.
The movie is due to come out in cinemas in September 2021, and I can’t wait. It’s an unknown quantity, this one. A few more trailers will give us a bit more of a flavour. But for now, it looks exciting.
