The film follows the story of martial-arts master Shang-Chi (played by actor Simu Liu), who confronts a past he thought he left behind when he’s drawn into the web of the mysterious Ten Rings organisation.
Created by Steven Englehart and Jim Starlin, Shang-Chi made his first appearance in December 1973 following the boom of martial arts films, thanks to the success of Enter the Dragon.
After a new trailer for the film was released, one fan wrote: “Okay I’m even more hyped than I already was. Can’t wait to see this whole new side of the MCU.”
“It does look pretty cool. I absolutely love that they brought back Abomination,” wrote another.
“Growing up I loved the crazy martial arts movies coming out of Hong Kong and the jet li movies of the early 90s...can’t wait for this,” added another excited fan.
Earlier this year, Marvel fans spotted a Captain America Easter egg hidden away in one of the trailers for Shang-Chi .
They noticed Captain America’s shield hidden in the background of one shot – the one that’s also recently been used in the Disney Plus TV show The Falcon and The Winter Soldier by John Walker.
How the shield will make it from that show into Shang-Chi remains to be seen.
Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be released in cinemas on 3 September.
