Shang-Chi Release Date, Lead Actor, and Villain Revealed

The MCU Has Cast Its Shang-Chi

The MCU Has Cast Its Shang-Chi

The movie was unveiled during Marvel Studios' Comic-Con International: San Diego panel, hosted by Kevin Feige. If that term "Ten Rings" got your comic book senses tingling, you're correct: The Mandarin-the real Mandarin, not the imposter played by Ben Kingsley in Iron Man 3-is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and will be played by Tony Leung (In the Mood For Love).

Shang-Chi opens in theaters in February 2021.

Liu is best known as the star of CBC's Kim's Convenience, and recently guest-starred on ABC's Fresh Off The Boat.

"It's been a very in-depth search to find somebody who captures this character with all the dimensions he deserves", Cretton said before bringing Liu onstage to raucous applause.

The Human Rights Foundation among others has asked for performers not to go there on account of the gender segregation policies. That's a stark change from when Saudi morality police would raid establishments that played loud music.

"I was cast on Tuesday, I screen-tested Sunday in NY and this is just the craziest dream".

"I grew up with friends that were Japanese, Chinese, Korean...that's the norm in Hawaii. And it's so exciting to see Kevin and his incredible team begin to create an MCU that begins to reflect all the lovely colors I see in this room".

Created by Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin, Shang-Chi was designed to allow Marvel to cash in on the huge popularity of martial arts films in the 1970s, thanks in large part to worldwide stardom of Bruce Lee. He's also been a member of The Avengers and Heroes for Hire, the latter alongside fellow kung fu masters Daughters of the Dragon.
