Created by writer Steve Englehart and artist Jim Starlin in the early 1970s, Shang-Chi is often referred to as the “Master of Kung Fu,” but masters many styles of both armed and unarmed combat. The character then acquired the ability to conjure up countless duplicates of himself, which led to him joining The Avengers, although the film will contain this superpower is currently unknown.
The film will introduce a world of martial arts and magic newly discovered in the MCU, and like everything we’ve seen of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the footage once again has a pretty powerful impact. Destin director Daniel Cretton has since revealed the inspiration behind the MCU’s approach to martial arts, with the filmmaker drawing inspiration from two very reliable sources; Legendary film martial artist Jackie Chan and Ang Lee’s stunning Oscar winner Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
“Authenticity and respect and staying true to that genre was the main focus from day one,” Cretton explained recently. “There are choreographies reminiscent of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and other fight scenes are inspired by Jackie Chan. We also had mainland Chinese choreographers who created some beautiful wuxia style fight scenes. important for us from the start to have the MCUs The first Asian-American superhero to be a superhero. We want him to be on par with other superheroes in the MCU and not just the kung fu master Shang-Chi is an incredible martial artist, but he’s more than that. “
The film will also reintroduce Marvel’s infamous supervillain, The Mandarin, a character who has appeared in the MCU before, albeit under controversial circumstances. Gone is the fake Ben Kingsley version of Iron Man 3 and his place is now Hero and Infernal Affairs star Tony Leung as Wenwu AKA The True Mandarin, Shang-Chi’s Father, and Leader of the Ten Rings .
