Watch: The first teaser for ‘Shang-Chi’ previews Toronto’s Simu Liu in the titular role

'Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' arrives in September

Marvel has shared a first teaser for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in honour of lead actor and Torontonian Simu Liu’s birthday.

On Twitter, Marvel Studios shared a “birthday present” for Liu, which sees the Chinese-Canadian actor harnessing his powers as Shang-Chi. From relentlessly training to taking part in a series of battles to an out of control bus, the high stakes trailer is action packed.

“Son, it’s time for you to take your place by my side,” Wenwu says in the clip, to which Shang-Chi responds, “that’s not going to happen.”

In the Destin Daniel Cretton-directed film Tony Leung, Michelle Yoeh, and Awkwafina are set to star alongside Liu as he plays the role of Shang-Chi, who is on a journey against his evil father The Mandarin.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is set for release in September.
