Discover the greatest specialist in martial arts
Today is the birthday of Simu liu. Be the guy who embodies Shang-Chi in the upcoming Marvel Studios movie. What better day for a first trailer? Knowing that the film arrives at the beginning of September. Come on, let’s go to admire the best martial arts specialist in the Marvel universe.
Note that the original title was literally translated as Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
“My son … it’s time to take your place …”
This first trailer begins quietly by revealing the origins of Bruce Lee from the Marvel Universe. So in the MCU he becomes the son of the real Mandarin (not the fake ofIron man 3, but whoever kidnaps Trevor in the short Long live the king).
However, where I am completely reassured, it is to see that when the action starts, the choreographies are worthy. We are even at the top of the basket with a really convincing Simu Liu in Shang-Chi. He’s clearly something other than Finn Jones even though I like him. The great thing is incorporating the know-how of the special effects boxes working with Marvel Studios through a great water manipulation sequence.
The two risk giving an explosive cocktail. I set the speed to 0.25 and was delighted to see that the hits hit the face well. Look at 1:30, the guy on the left takes the shoe in the face. I imagine they added special effects, if not poor stuntmen.
In short, the Black Panther of Asians. We even have white as a secondary villain with Razorblade instead of Klaw. I also like the way they changed the Ten Rings of the Mandarin from the comics. But more than anything, it is the sequences taking place in the past that particularly intrigue me. We have a fantastic bestiary and a wonderful scene that seems to come out of Tiger and dragon (Michelle Yeoh, is that you?).
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in original version) is scheduled for September 1, 2021.
Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, from a screenplay by David Callaham, Destin Daniel Cretton and Andrew Lanham, starring Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Tony Chiu-Wai Leung, Meng’er Zhang, Michelle Yeoh, Ronny Chieng and Florian Munteanu.
Shang-Chi will have to face a past he thought he left behind when he is caught in the web of the mysterious organization of the ten rings.
