So the first thing to talk about is the casting! Our main man is Simu Liu!. Known to be in Kim’s Convenience and other projects like Blood and Water and Meeting Mommy, Simu Liu is a Canadian actor. He is also known for being a writer and stuntman. Awkwafina is going to star right next to Simu Liu as Shang-Chi’s oldest friend. Awkwafina is known for playing in Jumanji: The Next Level and succeeding in her latest movie Raya and The Last Dragon. Knowing how hilarious she is, she will dominate this role. Tony Leung Chiu-wai will be taking up the mantle of one of the greatest villains that Iron Man has ever had, The Mandarin. Fun fact about Tony Leung Chiu-wai is that he is a singer and a darn good one at that. He has won many international acting awards and is widely considered the best native Hong Kong actor of his generation. Next up we have Michelle Yeoh, a Malaysian actress who has played in many different roles such as Crazy Rich Asians and Last Christmas. In the stuff that she played, she will definitely be good at this role. Next up we have is the popular comedian Ronny Chieng. Chieng has starred in many different movies and TV Shows like Crazy Rich Asians and Scissor Seven. He even made an appearance in Godzilla vs. Kong. He will star in an upcoming movie that is coming this year on Netflix called Wish Dragon which is coming this year. He also has a stand-up, Ronny Chieng: Asian Comedian Destroys America, on Netflix. We have a lot more talented actors and actresses but I would not be able to finish this article.


There will be a lot of special characters that are going to appear in this movie and a lot of things that are gonna make more sense. For starters, the trailer shows Shang-Chi fighting in Madripoor, which is a fictional place located near Southeast Asia. It’s also a place where the Falcon and the Winter Soldier visited in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Also, The Mandarin has been known to be connected to the Iron Man movies mostly, we might get some connection to Tony Stark before he became Iron Man. It might release info that we did not know. Now, this next character is a big character, and when I mean big, I mean big. The Great Protector himself, Fin Fang Foom will make an appearance. A very huge alien dragon that went against the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, and most known characters– even at once. 


Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings will be in theaters on September 9th, 2021, and will be the first Asian American Marvel Movie. Seems like this movie is going to have a lot of first.
