Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is officially well underway, and the Collective team couldn’t be more excited for the FOUR Marvel films that we’ll be getting in the second half of 2021. After the long overdue Black Widow (thanks, COVID -_-) hits theaters in July, Marvel fans will only have to wait a few more weeks for the debut film of Shang-Chi.
Need more reasons to be excited? Well, Marvel Studios released the first teaser trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings today, as a surprise for actor Simu Liu’s birthday (happy birthday, Simu! We love you!)
The trailer’s full of action and Simu and even a glimpse at Awkwafina’s character, Katy, and, well, if you haven’t watched it yet, what are you waiting for?
By the by, the “Ten Rings” have been mentioned in the cinematic universe since the MCU’s conception film, Ironman (2008), so if you want to brush up on all the hints and foreshadowing that have led us to this film, I’d recommend rewatching the Ironman trilogy, and there’s also a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it nod to the organization in Ant-Man (2015).
