Shang-Chi brings kung-fu to the MCU in 2021


Those cats! Why, they're faster than lightning!

In the torrent of Marvel news from San Diego Comic Con, the House of Ideas is pulling from its '70s catalogue with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

Simu Liu will be taking up the heavy lifting as the titular Master of Kung Fu, a creation of Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin, back at the height of Bruce Lee fever in the US. "Jim Starlin... That name sounds familiar," non-comic book readers might say. Starlin is of course famous all over again recently for having given us Thanos, the MCU's Grimace-like tyrant. Let's hope that man is collecting his checks from Marvel Studios these days.

Also joining the Shang-Chi film are Awkwafina and Tony Leung, making this movie amazing already. Tony Leung is allegedly set to play The Mandarin, who was previously seen as a weird imposter charlatan in Iron Man 3, played by Ben Kingsley. This time, we're getting the real deal. 

Expect to see a brawl brewing when Shang-Chi and the Ten Rings releases on February 12 of 2021.
